Platform independent code with .NET

Hi All

I have a Visual Studio project which handles two platform projects. One for 32 bit and one for 64 bit. I would like to keep a single project and a single setup (Deployment) to install both 64 bit and 32 bit platforms. So I am currently using "Any CPU" in the project as platform.
Most of my codes are working fine. But when I add a reference to SAP Business One DI API and UI API, this makes problems. It has both 64 and 32 bit versions.

My question is How can I use both project and setup.exe (Deployment) as a single entity with these references. That means it must run for 32 bit platform with 32 bit SAP reference and for 64 bit platform, SAP 64 bit reference?. Any kind of Conditional compilation will help on tihs?

Advance thanks for your help
Yours sincerely.

here a full solution for your case:
Using Side-by-Side assemblies to load the x64 or x32 version of a DLL

the catch here is using custom assembly resolver which loads the right targeted dll for each platform.
