Please advise what server you are trying to connect to, is it
2012 or earlier.

Linked Server SQL 2012 to SQL 2008

I only have 32-bit servers, so for me to create an alias, I run cliconfg from the run dialogue, which uses my path environment variable.  My alias is using 32-bit DLL called dbnetlib, how did you create the alias for 64-bit?  You would need to ensure you are invoking the 64-bit version of cliconfg.
