read and set the attributes of blocks in windows 64 bit

Hello everyone
I read and set the attributes of blocks using VBA in AutoCAD 2010 on
Windows 64 bit.

In Windows 32-bit I always used the following code without problems:

NposScr = elem.GetBlockAttributeValue(o.ObjectID)

and


Call oML.SetBlockAttributeValue(o.ObjectID, "TEST")

But now in Windows 64 bit does not work.

I tried to replace o.ObjectID with o.ObjectID32 and early seemed to
work, but after a while 'has begun to indicate the following error:


Compile error: Function or interface marked as restricted, or the
funzion uses an Automation type not supported in Visual Basic

I want a code that works with both Windows 64-bit and 32 bit Windows.

Can you help?

Thanks

Well, you're going to have to think about migrating to VB.NET.

The problem appears to be that 64 bit integers are not a type
supported by ActiveX.

Hello, I've been wrestling with this too. If you use GetBlockAttributeValue32 instead of GetBlockAttributeValue it should work. I know this is a couple years old, but I've had success with this: ex: strDesc = acdMleader.GetBlockAttributeValue32(oAttDef.ObjectID32) Regards, Stephen Schneider
