Data Type Garbage Out

Data Type Garbage Out

(OP)
I'm trying to call a function that has a Int64 result, and I'm getting reasonably decent results. Problem is that I really need to just be able to use 8 bytes of data (e.g. array[1..8] of byte) for some proper post-processing. The problem is that I get different/garbage results. Any ideas on why this is, that maybe I haven't tried in debugging this?

Basically:

CODE

function this: Int64;

begin
  value := this;
end; 

Code works where value is Int64, but the problem is that value can't be Int64 for what I have to do.

It is not possible for anyone to acknowledge truth when their salary depends on them not doing it.

Nevermind.
