Weblogic: nodemanager.dll: Can't load AMD 64-bit .dll on a IA 32-bit platform

When installing a sandbox in my own computer, I couldn't make NodeManager run because of this exception. I tried changing jre from 64 to 32 bits, but it didn't work anyway.

After a lot of time lost trying to solve this, I found this link, that really solves the issue.

http://www.techpaste.com/2012/06/steps-solve-nodemanager-dll-load-amd-64-bit-dll-ia-32-bit-platform-error-weblogic/

I quote:

To solve above error do following:

1. Create a file called nodemanager.properties in %WL_HOME%\common\nodemanager

Example: D:\products\wls1034\wlserver_10.3\common\nodemanager

2. Add the following line to it

NativeVersionEnabled=false

3. And start it up!, this will force it not to use .DLL files and use emulation/non native methods instead.

Really great input from techpaste.com.
