You didn't answer any of my questions.  My current theory is that you
are mixing a 32-bit application with a 64-bit DLL, or vice versa.  I
gave you instructions on how to check that in my original reply.

> Are you on a 64-bit operating system?  Are you entirely sure that the Bloomberg Desktop API v3 a 32-bit service?  Remember that you can ONLY call a 32-bit in-process server from a 32-bit application, and a 64-bit server from a 64-bit application.
