A process can only link to a shared library compiled for the same
architecture as the process. In layman's terms: A 32-bit DLL won't work
with a 64-bit program. It looks like this package is attempting to load
a 32-bit DLL. That's not going to work. Either procure a 64-bit version
of the DLL, or use a 32-bit version of Python.
