My guess would be that it uses 32 bit DLLs (probably just the Win32 API)  and has not been 
updated with PTRSAFE and LONGPTR Declarations and Types.

A quick look at the VBA would soon tell. It's likely to be not much work at all if that is the 
issue. I've done it countless times.

If they are OK with you "sub-contracting  a  foreign consultant" I'd be happy to take a quick 
look at the accdb files for you.
