Because you have a 32 bit dll on a 64 bit OS. You need to target it differently.[^]

its just the theory part. how to resolve the issue by registering?? i tried syswow 64 also but no help. can you please be more specific on how to solve this problem?

You need a dll that will work for 64 bit registration. i.e. it must be recompiled targeting that type of processor.

but i do not have a source code for that. its a third party dll.

There is nothing you can do then other than using a 32 bit OS.
