Problem summary

    64Bit DLL cannot be called from a CATVBA
    .
    

Problem conclusion

  • Limitation for VBA in a 64 bit context when
    a macro
    program
    declares a function.
    The following kind of declaration "Private
    Declare
    Function
    MyFunctionNameInDll Lib "E:\My.dll" (...)
    As ..."
    is not possible in a 64 bit context if the
    My.dll is a
    64 bit Dll or if it's
    a 32 bit one but has some prereqs
    on some DS Dlls.
    The VBA integration in DS 64 bit softwares
    is based
    on a separate
    32 bit application dedicated to VBA.
    This architecture allows DS to offer VBA in
    its 64 bit
    applications
    but it leads to this limitation :
    A DLL referenced by a VBA macro must be a
    32 bit
    one. This
    implies that these dlls cannot interact
    with DS dlls that are, in that case, 64 ones.
    .
