im trying to use readprocess memory to read a value in another process's memory
ive got it to work in visual c++ so i know the address is correct and im going about it the right way
anyway heres my code (uses 4 text boxes and a button)
when i use this the window is found and a handle is created but the value input to the buffer after readprocessmem is incorrect
and if i keep pressing the button the value changes, most of the time it is either 127 or 0, and will alternate after each press

Private Const PROCESS_ALL_ACCESS As Long = &H1F0FFF
Private Declare Function GetWindowThreadProcessId Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long, lpdwProcessId As Long) As Long

Private Declare Function ReadProcessMemory Lib "kernel32" (ByVal hProcess As Long, ByVal lpBaseAddress As Any, lpBuffer As Any, ByVal nSize As Long, lpNumberOfBytesWritten As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function WriteString Lib "kernel32" Alias "WriteProcessMemory" (ByVal hProcess As Long, ByVal lpBaseAddress As Any, ByVal lpBuffer As Any, ByVal nSize As Long, ByVal lpNumberOfBytesWritten As Long) As Long

'Private Declare Function WriteValue Lib "kernel32" Alias "WriteProcessMemory" (ByVal hProcess As Long, ByVal lpBaseAddress As Any, lpBuffer As Any, ByVal nSize As Long, ByVal lpNumberOfBytesWritten As Long) As Long

Private Sub get_Click()
Dim bytvalue As Long
Dim phandle As Long
Dim res As Long

    res = FindWindow(vbNullString, "MyApp")
    Text2 = res
    If res = 0 Then
        MsgBox "Could not find window"
    End If
     
    GetWindowThreadProcessId res, pId
   
    Text3 = pId
   
    phandle = OpenProcess(PROCESS_ALL_ACCESS, False, pId)
   
    Text4 = phandle
   
    If (phandle = 0) Then
         GoTo die
    End If
   
    tmp = ReadProcessMemory(phandle, "532E8C", bytvalue, 1, 0&)
