[vtkusers] error adding Kitware.vtk.dll from ActiViz.NET 5.8 x64 to Visual Studio 2012

Use the 32-bit x86 version for design mode in Visual Studio. VS is a
32-bit app, and can only load 32-bit (or "Any CPU") controls... Since
the x64 is a 64-bit only control, it cannot work within the 32-bit
Visual Studio environment.

Once you have a project that works as 32-bit, you can easily build a
64-bit version of it.... but inside VS you always need a reference to
the 32-bit one for things to work as you expect.
