Trouble with GetActiveWindow

Trouble with GetActiveWindow

I keep getting the following compiler error when trying to use the GetActiveWindow API.

Error 1 error #6423: This name has already been used as an external function name. [GETACTIVEWINDOW]

My code segment is as follows:

use user32
implicit none
integer(HANDLE) hWnd
hWnd = GetActiveWindow

I haven't declared, used or even mentioned GetActiveWindow anywhere else in my project. What am I doing wrong? Is the problem related to the fact that the function has no parameters passed into it?

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

Correct line should be:

hWnd = GetActiveWindow()

I think compiler supposes that GetActiveWindow without () is variable not function.

Exactly.
