Yes it is.
Regardless FRE is 32-bit application it is also COM-aware application. So it is able to utilize COM for automatic marshaling between 64-bit and 32-bit applications.
Starting from version 10 you can use OutprocLoader function to load SDK instance to an outer process from within 64-bit host application. After that you can get IEngine object and work with it as usual. All interprocess communications (including marshaling) will be held by COM.
