I'm trying to use the ActiveX control module on a 64-bit computer, but it only works with 32-bit machines. Solutions?

I'm trying to use the ActiveX control module for a DI-145 unit on a 64-bit computer (Windows 7), but I'm finding that the ActiveX module only works with 32-bit machines. Is there a workaround for this problem? Specifically, I'm trying to stream the data in real time to Origin Lab software.

A 64-bit OS can execute 32-bit binaries. The problem occurs when you want a 32-bit binary to talk to a 64-bit binary. If the Origin Lab application is 32-bit, it should work. If not, you'll need to use some neutral medium to communicate.
