Hi Sirineni,
I don't know if the dll was created by you or a 3rd party. I just give my own experience here. If I build 32bit dll myself on Visual Studio, I will switch the platform to x86, not leaving it as AnyCPU (by default). When you identify the platform clearly, that dll is compatible on Wins 64 bit. You may use different IDE or CPU, please adjust to suitable platform in this case. Hope it helps.
