The Win 64 BIT

Last Modified: 2017-11-14

I have just come back from one of our depot with bad news the code below is block other code from working , we  are currently using Ms access 2016 stored as 32 BIT running on windows 64 BIT

#IF Win64 THEN
  Declare PtrSafe Function GetUserName Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias "GetUserNameA" (ByVal _
   lpBuffer As String, nSize As Long) As LongPtr
  Declare Function GetUserName Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias "GetUserNameA" (ByVal _
   lpBuffer As String, nSize As Long) As Long
#End If

For example we cannot up date depot details any more.

Any solution to this will be highly appreciated.
