The code presented at Unlocking Password Protected VBA project works under 32 but not 64bit.
Ret = FindWindow(vbNullString, "VBAProject Password")
always return 0. I have tried
Ret = FindWindow("#32770", "VBAProject Password") Ret = FindWindow("XLMAIN", "VBAProject Password")
None works. I have also tried the following APIs: setforegroundwindow, bringwindowtotop, setfocus, getactivewindow, getwindowthreadprocessid. Still failed so I don’t think it’s a focus issue. Perhaps it’s timing? I tried using
but I am new to APIs so not sure how to implement that.
I am calling this via the workbookopen app event inside my personal.xlsb I am trying to fill in password upon opening any workbook.
Private Sub AppEvent_WorkbookOpen(ByVal wb As Excel.Workbook) If wb.VBProject.Protection <> 1 Then Exit Sub End If Call unlockvba(wb) End Sub
Edit: I have set my declarations to PtrSafe and LongPtr where applicable.
Figured it out. The issue wasn’t 64bit, it was a timing/focus issue.
Sub unlockVBA(wb) If wb.name = "PERSONAL.XLSB" Then Exit Sub Application.VBE.MainWindow.Visible = True TimerID = SetTimer(0&, 0&, 500&, AddressOf TimerProc) Application.VBE.CommandBars(1).FindControl(ID:=2578, recursive:=True).Execute End Sub Public Sub TimerProc(ByVal hwnd As LongPtr, ByVal wMsg As LongPtr, ByVal idEvent As LongPtr, ByVal dwTime As LongPtr) On Error Resume Next KillTimer hwnd, TimerID MyPassword = "password" Ret = FindWindow(vbNullString, "VBAProject Password") ChildRet = FindWindowEx(Ret, ByVal 0&, "Edit", vbNullString) If ChildRet <> 0 Then Call SendMessage(ChildRet, WM_SETTEXT, False, ByVal MyPassword) DoEvents End If ChildRet = FindWindowEx(Ret, ByVal 0&, "Button", vbNullString) If ChildRet <> 0 Then 'MsgBox "Button's Window Found" '~~> Get the caption of the child window strBuff = String(GetWindowTextLength(ChildRet) + 1, Chr(0)) GetWindowText ChildRet, strBuff, Len(strBuff) ButCap = strBuff '~~> Loop through all child windows Do While ChildRet <> 0 '~~> Check if the caption has the word "OK" If InStr(1, ButCap, "OK") Then '~~> If this is the button we are looking for then exit OpenRet = ChildRet Exit Do End If '~~> Get the handle of the next child window ChildRet = FindWindowEx(Ret, ChildRet, "Button", vbNullString) '~~> Get the caption of the child window strBuff = String(GetWindowTextLength(ChildRet) + 1, Chr(0)) GetWindowText ChildRet, strBuff, Len(strBuff) ButCap = strBuff Loop If OpenRet <> 0 Then '~~> Click the OK Button SendMessage ChildRet, BM_CLICK, 0, vbNullString Else MsgBox "The Handle of OK Button was not found" End If Else MsgBox "Button's Window Not Found" End If
