According to this, maybe you need to install exchange Management Tools on the Visual Studio Remote machine...

Can you post the code....maybe set breakpoints to check values....

It's suggested to compile unmanaged as managed here:

"The MS suggestion would probably be to compile specific classes/modules in your generally unmanaged C++ app as managed code (compiling individual files with /clr), and letting the IJW transition code manage the calls to/from it (and calling PowerShell API's from the managed bits). I've been told (from MS VC++ people) that's the expected methodology for adding bits of managed calls to large unmanaged applications."

From link:
- wrong version of installutil.exe and the snapin got registered under WOW hives of a 64bit machine
- Also review the shortcut to powershell, are you loading up the 32 bit version of 64 bit?
