In order to run DynamicPDF for COM on 64-bit machine, you will have to make IIS run in 32-bit mode since the DLL is compiled using 32-bit compiler. Following is the link to the Microsoft tech article: that shows steps on how to do this. Follow the steps under "ASP.NET 1.1, 32-bit version" to run IIS in 32-bit mode.

Then unregister the DLL file and register it again using the below line and that will solve the problem:

%WINDIR%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\regasm DynamicPDF.dll /codebase /tlb
