Starting with version 6.1.7, the Windows binary is compiled using the MinGW GCC based compiler suite. Due to changed naming conventions this implies that extension DLLs are neither forward nor backward compatible. Please check the windows release nodes (also in the SWI-Prolog startup menu of your installed version).
