Hey Neha,

I checked the known issues and I could not find any known issue in this area. As far as I can see there should not be any problem because of the 64 bit client machine.

In this situation, there are a bunch of things you could try in order to drill down to the root cause of the problem :

  1. Try to clear the browser cache on 64 bit machine and then try again.
  2. Try to use another browser on the 64 bit machine.
  3. Try to use another user credentials to reproduce the case on 64 bit machine.

Hope this helps!

Hey Ruchi,

Thanks for the suggesstions..I will try them and see if it solves my problem!

Is it working in any environments now? If not, did you check whether you still have the "Browse Users" global permission?
