Pending patch 6463 (download) should resolve this issue for both 32-bit and 64-bit users.

After this patch, Open DBDiff will build as a 32-bit project which should be compatible with 64-bit machines. This workaround was proposed by CodePlex user teleyah on workitem 9565. For your convenience, updated binaries are included in the patch alongside the updated
