FILESTREAM feature is not supported on WoW64

Microsoft released SQL Server 2012 RC0 which supports FileTable table type based on the FileStream feature of SQL Server. I have just download SQL Server 2012 evaluation version of the SQL2012 RC0 edition and install SQL Server 2012 32-bit edition on my 64-bit Windows 7 operating system.

When I try to enable FileStream on SQL Server 2012 instance level by using the new SQL Server Management Studio GUI from server properties, I experienced the "FileStream feature is not supported on WoW64" error.

FileStream feature is not supported on WoW64

An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch. (Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo)

FILESTREAM feature is not supported on WoW64. The feature is disabled. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 5593)



I just open SQL Server Management Studio 2012, and then connect to the SQL2012RC0 instance. Then I displayed Server Properties window and switched to Advanced properties tab. In the FileStream section, I tried to change the FileStream Access Level from "Disabled" to Transact-SQL access enabled but unfortunately experienced the SQL Server error 5593.
