I'd check to make sure that the SQL Server 2005 Express Edition has been configured for network connectivity.   The default install does NOT enable network connection.
Take a look at the following (about 1/2 way down)

Take a look at these example connection strings...  The express edition typically has an "instance name" of SQLEXPRESS

I tried the forms on this site, the ideal would be to try to find something in the code

Well, we don't really have much to go on, since we can't see what values are being used to build the connection string.
Here is what I'd guess would be the correct connection string:
    SQL = "Provider=SQLNCLI;Data Source=" & Servidor.Text & "\SQLEXPRESS; Initial Catalog=" & BancoDados.Text & ";Password=" & Senha.Text & ";User ID=" & Login.Text & ";"

OK, it looks like you need to install the 64-bit version of SQL Server 2005 "Native Client" on that PC

the problem is in software that is not working on x64, no with the database

Error 3706 is all about the database provider... did you try it?
