I rebuilt the app for 64 bit Window 2003 server and the installation executable is crashing with System.BadImageFormatException. Could not load file or assmbly 'SharedCache.WinService, Version=3.05.02 or one of its dependencies.

I am not sure why it is crashing after everything is built successfully for 64 bit in release mode.

Projects are set to build with the AnyCPU directive.  Why do you need to change to specifically 64bit?  

Just be careful not to mix 32 bit clients and 64 bit servers as the there MAY be issues with binary serialization of certain objects.
