ERROR: Object Reference Not Set to an Instance of an Object

I have an (exe) executable program created in VB.NET 2003 that calls to a
MFC DLL written in VC++.NET 2003. I always get an error msg
"NullReferenceE xception: Object Reference Not Set to an Instance of an
Object" when my exe calls the following codes:


Declare Function test Lib "C:\Cyob\IOComm \Debug\IOComm.d ll" _
(ByVal a As Long, ByRef b As Integer) As Integer

Dim did As Integer
Dim ret As Integer

ret = test(PortHnd, did) //ERROR: Object Reference Not Set to an
Instance of an Object
in VC++.NET

extern "C" int APIENTRY test(HANDLE a, int *b)
*b=55; //ERROR: Object Reference Not Set to an Instance of an
return 99;
Why is this happening? Any idea in solving such matter?
Thanks in Advance

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
