Raster Design 2012 ARX files problem

Hello

At the company that I work for we have our own customizations menu from which Raster Design 2012 is loaded. In the VBA script there is a line which loads it :

ThisDrawing.Application.LoadArx ("c:\program files\Autodesk\AutoCAD Raster Design 2012\AeciQuickBarUi55.arx")

this file loads the required ARX files for Raster but when I unload it, it doesn't unload some of the ARX files which have been previousley loaded so it keeps the license taken which is not desired. So I added a line which unloads aecivmui55.arx which as a result causes these files to be unloaded :

acismobj18.dbx  
acismui.arx  
aeciib.dbx  - MDI Aware.
aeciibapi55.arx  
aeciibui55.arx  
aeciuibase55.arx

after this when I check the list of ARX files it looks exactly like the same list before opening Raster which means all the ARX and DBX files related to Raster have been unloaded. but when I try to reopen Raster it fails saying that it can't find the license (error message attached). Does anyone know what the problem might be?

If the goal is just to release the license, can you just use the IUNLOAD command?

I use this in VBA to unload it:

ThisDrawing.Application.UnloadArx ("c:\program files\Autodesk\AutoCAD Raster Design 2012\aecivmui55.arx")

We don't have such problem for Autocad 2008, it's only for 2012.

As far as I know, unloading ARX content has *never* been an accepted or intended means of releasing licenses.  Even though there is the means to unload them, I've never seen an application which actually takes that into account by Raster Design or any other add-on.

Hence the purpose of the iUnload command. :-)
