Don't know.

The key issue is that your project and the DLLs you link to must
match. I built curl for 32-bit WinXP successfully (following the
posted directions). You should be able to build a 32-bit project to
run in a 64-bit O/S (that's what WOW64 does). So, if you build a
32-bit project and use 32-bit DLLs, you should be OK.

There's another issue about debug vs release libraries, which I
assume you're aware of.
