Folder size in Access VBA

Dear experts -
We had a routine that was working perfectly, but now it is choking on determining the size of a given folder with the 3 lines below.
I imagine it has something to do with the new server, which is running MICROSOFT WINDOWS SERVER 2012 R2 Datacenter.

It seems to be choking on the following lines:

    Set objfso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set objfolder = objfso.GetFolder(thisname)
    tsfoldersize = objfolder.Size

Any ideas? Alternate approaches? (We are running a report and for each directly listed, we need to show the folder size)

Choking as in it returns an error?  Hangs?

The only thing right off is the data type of tsfoldersize; it may not be large enough.

This pointed me in the right direction - I changed data type and also added in some error checking in case the folder didn't exist and it is now working. thank you!!
