This appears to be some kind of Windows DLL compatibility problem. I believe Graphviz on windows is still 32 bits. There are various articles on the internet describing the reasons for this error and ways to try to fix it. We don't have the resources within our project right now to support multiple versions of Windows or even to get the current Windows build up to date with Microsoft Visual Studio.
