Method 1

This is because ,your project is trying to use a 32-bit dll in a 64-bit environment(azure)

To solve this type of issues ,create a start up script with the below given commands

Copy below startup script to a text file and save as “setup.cmd” .
Then include this file into your web role project,set “copy local”=true
then open your ServiceDefinition.csdef below given startup command inside webrole tag

<webrole > --your webrole
    <Startup>
              <Task commandLine="setup.cmd" executionContext="elevated" />
          </Startup>
</webrole >

start up script pasted below:
%windir%system32inetsrvappcmd set config -section:system.applicationHost/applicationPools /applicationPoolDefaults.enable32BitAppOnWin64:"True" /commit:apphost

Method 2

I resolved this issue by removig the respective DLL from the bin folder of my asp.net web project.

Thanks and regards,

Method 3

I resolved this by setting the Enable 32-Bit applications option to True in the Advanced Settings of the application pool which the site used.

Method 4

BadImageFormat Exception is almost always a problem between a 32bit dll trying to load up a 64bit dll or a DLL or executable is loaded as a 64-bit assembly, but it contains 32-bit features or resources.

Try compiling your application down to x86 or vice versa and let me know how that works
