I developed two applications with visual studio 2005.  The applications uses a ActiveX dll that is a 32bit DLL made with Visual Basic 6.

When I installed the applications on a windows 7 machine they would not run.

I found that in visual studio when I change the target processor from Any to x86 I was able to have my applications run just fine.

my question is,  what would it take to make the DLL work in a 64bit mode without rewriting the DLL.
