Microsoft Access 2010 "Compile Error - The code in this project must be updated for use on 64-bit systems"

My client purchased a new system and is attempting to install my Microsoft Access / SQL Server database application. They are getting an error telling them that the code needs to be updated to accommodate the 64 bit system. They, as well as I, have 64 bit systems and the application runs with no problem.  I have attached a screen shot of their error.screen shot of error

That is referring tot he version of Office not Windows.

Are they using the 64-bit version of Office? If yes, they really should use the 32-bit version of Office it at all possible.

What version of Office did they purchase for these new systems, my guess is that they purchased the 64 bit version of Office (not recommended even by Microsoft except in specific cases)

If the application uses 3rd party ActiveX controls (treeview) you will get this or a similar message in 64bit Office.  Additionally, API calls will have to be modified.  If you search here in EE, you will find replacement API code for many of the frequently used APIs.
