SPFarm.Local – Object reference not set to an instance of an object

While writing a console application for SharePoint 2010, I kept getting “Object reference not set to an instance of an object” when using the SPFarm.Local object.

SPFarm oFarm = SPFarm.Local;

The solution was putting the “Platform Target” configuration of my console application from x86 to x64 or Any CPU:

platform target

After that, my application ran fine.
