Overcoming compile error constants, fixed-length strings not allowed in converting Access 2007 32-bit file to Access 2010 64-bit?

All I have two modules that I'm trying to convert from Access 2007 32-bit to now Access 2010 64-bit and both are giving me the same error?

What is the correct syntax I should use for?

theh error I get is compile error.

Constants, fixed-length strings, arrays, user-defined types and declare statements now allowed as public members of object modules.  And all the statements are highlighted.

I've got some interesting insight from http://gpgonaccess.blogspot.com/2010/03/work-in-progress-and-64-bit-vba.html on how to overcome most functions but even with the PtrSafe I still get the errors.
Declare PtrSafe Function StartupShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long


Declare PtrSafe Function apiCopyStartup Lib "kernel32" Alias "CopyFileA" _
(ByVal lpExistingFileName As String, _
ByVal lpNewFileName As String, _
ByVal bFailIfExists As Long) As Long

It appears that your API calls are for the 32 bit APIs.  If you are running in 64 bit, you must use the 64 bit APIs.

Also, those API calls may have been carried over from long-ago versions of Access.  They may not be needed any more, because of additions to the Access and Office object models.  Copying files, for example, can be done with the Scripting Runtime Library FileSystemObject.
