In the application pool there is a setting to enable 32-bit applications. Try setting that to true and see if it solves your problem.

Hi

If i set enable 32-bit applications to true,  it is allowing only 32 bit dlls, but not 64 bit dlls, but i have both dlls in my project, is it possible to run 32 bit and 64 bit process at same time

Please suggest

Are you sure about that or are you speculating? Put another way, did you actually try it? I was pretty sure we had both running inside a single process in our application but I could be mistaken.

you can't load 32 bit code in a 64 bit process or load 64 bit code in 32 bit process.

You have to split your project into two applications that will be ran in different application pools, one x86 and one x64. Use any interprocess-communication (WCF, web services, socket, named pipe etc) to communicate between application pools.
