Using Enterprise Library 3.1 in both 32bit and 64bit OS

I am looking to use Enterprise Library 3.1 in building applications that would operate in both 32bit and 64bit OS.

Based on my understanding, if my .NET code is 100% managed code, the code can work on both 32bit and 64bit .net OS environment without change.

However, it was observed in Enterprise Library 3.1 source code that it uses P/Invoke to access some unmanaged code (e.g. in Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging.LogEntry.GetProcessName()).

My question to all your experts out there,

"What will be the implication of accessing unmanaged code when I am developing the application for both 32 bit and 64 bit OS".

"Would I need to make changes to my code to cater for each?"

I have searched hours for any articles or post regarding this but found no useful information. So any tips or pointers to useful articles are greatly appreciated.

Thank you all!
