I'm using a W7 64bits and developing a 32bit app with VS2010 in VB.NET (framework v2.0.50727)

When I intend to use certains component as PDF.OCX, etc, at compiling time I get the following error:

Error      1      is not a valid Win32 application. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800700C1) Line 130, position 5, etc.etc.etc.

  <data name="AxPDFOCX1.OcxState" mimetype="application/x-microsoft.net.object.binary.base64">
    <value>

You should change the configuration from Any CPU to x86 in configuration manager. Also ensure that you are referencing 32bit dlls (which I suspect you are as it didn't work as Any CPU)
