set session = CreateObject("Lotus.NotesSession") fails in 64-bit Office Excel VBA

set session = CreateObject("Lotus.NotesSession") fails in 64-bit Office Excel VBA but works fine in 32-bit Office Excel VBA.
I need to get this working in 64-bit Office Excel VBA.  Any help on this is greatly appreciated.

You cannot access 32bit components from a 64bit process and vice versa. You need to install 64bit Lotus Notes components.


At installation, 32bit and 64bit installers actually write to different sections of the registry. So a 64bit process might now even be aware that there is a 32bit version of the library installed somewhere. Either way, it couldn't use the 32bit version  anyways.

Just looking around, it doesn't look like there is a 64bit version of the Lotus Notes client. You might be better served using 32bit office. Or bridging the comms between office and your app by using some other technique... Like maybe writing a 32bit command line that you can call from your 64bit office and so on. The command line app could then handle to notes comms for you.  Not pretty... But....
