x64/x32 folder is properly interpreted for desktop application. However ASP.NET looks for app\x64 while should look to app\bin\x64. Following methos is universal and works good for Desktop & ASP.NET context:

Assembly assembly = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();
if (assembly != null)
   Uri u = new Uri(assembly.EscapedCodeBase);
   String directory = Path.GetDirectoryName( u.LocalPath + Uri.UnescapeDataString(u.Fragment).Replace("/", @"\\") ) ;
   if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(directory))
     return directory;

The currently supported alternative is to use the "PreLoadSQLite_BaseDirectory"
environment variable to manually override the base directory used by the native
library pre-loader.

An alternative "auto-detection" solution for ASP.NET would involve making use of
the HttpRuntime.UsingIntegratedPipeline, HttpRuntime.AppDomainAppVirtualPath, and
HttpContext.Current.Request.ApplicationPath properties.
