I spent way too long trying to figure this out! We use an ALIAS created by running cliconfg so our dev and production machines all point to the respected SQL Servers. Well, the wonderful learning curve of using x64, which I do recommend and it is something we all need to learn, ehemm, it has its own little separate cliconfg! If you don't use that specific one for your x64 machine your aliases won't work! Thanks to Google and two hours of searching, here is the article du jour!
