Exercises don't work with 64 bit SQL Server

The book, "Microsoft SQL Server 2008--Business Intellegence Development and Maintenance: MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-448)", does not appear to work with 64 bit SQL server; specifically, the unsupported Excel Connection Manager in Chapter 3 Lesson 2. Is it possible to run the package from BIDS on a 64 bit machine?
