     With vbpointers32.dll, you can now use 32 bit pointers in vb. A pointer is a reference to a variable, like those in C. VB doesn 't let you do this, but you can get around this. You can do it the VarPtr() ways combined with Copymemory (the hard way) or you can do it the easy way with this dll. vbpointers32.dll lets you reference a variable thats less than or equal to 32 bits, like a byte, integer, long, single and booleans (no objects or strings yet), and put it into a long variable! You can also do arrays, multi-dim arrays and types! This is my first submission to PSC. By the way, check out my profile. PLEASE VOTE AND LEAVE COMMENTS! Side Effects: If you misuse the dll you might crash vb or vb will skip the line.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
