In case anyone needs to get a 64-bit file browser working here's how I got it to work (code adapted from code written by someone much smarter than me online).

I used this code for browsing files from within the editor... YMMV if using in the runtime (which as has been said before inst the best idea).

In MyWorkspace
Code:
Private Declare PtrSafe Function GetOpenFileName Lib "comdlg32.dll" Alias _
"GetOpenFileNameA" (pOpenfilename As OPENFILENAME) As Long

Private Declare PtrSafe Function SHBrowseForFolder Lib "shell32.dll" _
Alias "SHBrowseForFolderA" (lpBrowseInfo As BrowseInfo) As Long
Private Declare PtrSafe Function SHGetPathFromIDList Lib "shell32.dll" _
(ByVal pidList As LongPtr, ByVal lpBuffer As String) As Long
Private Declare PtrSafe Sub CoTaskMemFree Lib "ole32.dll" (ByVal hMem As LongPtr)

Private Const BFFM_IUNKNOWN As Long = 5 '// provides IUnknown to client. lParam: IUnknown*
'// messages to browser
Private Const BFFM_SETSTATUSTEXTA As Long = WM_USER + 100
Private Const BFFM_ENABLEOK As Long = WM_USER + 101
Private Const BFFM_SETSELECTIONA As Long = WM_USER + 102
Private Const BFFM_SETSELECTIONW As Long = WM_USER + 103

You need to put the following in a separate module (don't know why exactly)
Code:
Public Type BrowseInfo
hWndOwner As LongPtr
pIDLRoot As LongPtr
pszDisplayName As String
lpszTitle As String
ulFlags As Long
lpfnCallback As LongPtr
lParam As LongPtr
iImage As Long
End Type
Public Declare PtrSafe Function SendMessageA Lib "user32" _
(ByVal Hwnd As LongPtr, ByVal wMsg As Long, _
ByVal wParam As LongPtr, lParam As Any) As LongPtr
' typedef int (CALLBACK* BFFCALLBACK)(HWND hwnd, UINT uMsg, LPARAM lParam, LPARAM lpData);
Public Function BFFCallback(ByVal Hwnd As LongPtr, ByVal uMsg As LongPtr, ByVal lParam As LongPtr, ByVal sData As String) As LongPtr
If uMsg = BFFM_INITIALIZED Then
SendMessageA Hwnd, BFFM_SETSELECTIONA, True, ByVal sData
End If
End Function
You can then call the file browser like
Code:
Public Sub test123()
Dim strTEst As String
strTEst = FileBrowseOpen("C:\", "Test", "*.*", 1)
MsgBox (strTEst)
End Sub
