do you create that c++?

if you do, make sure in c++

Project->properties->c/c++ tab, Category->code generation

change struct memeber alignment to 1 byte and recompile

sorry in vb they pad with 4 bytes, so change it to 4 bytes
EDDYKTCommented:
by the way, i usually use 1 byte from c++ and then use copy memory on vb to extract the info one at the time instead of copy to udt

I am already doing that, I a just wondering if there is a easy api to diretly convert it into DWORD (??) or VB UDT format.
EDDYKTCommented:
you can use

Private Declare Sub CopyMemory Lib "kernel32" Alias "RtlMoveMemory" (pDst As Any, pSrc As Any, ByVal ByteLen As Long)


dim l as long

CopyMemory 1, byte1(0), 4


where byte1 is from your c++
