VBA Enabler - Install before AutoCAD?

609 Views, 1 Replies

As part of a company deployment I want to install the VBA Enabler via batch file in silent mode. I can achieve this but due to how AutoCAD Mechanical deploys it is easier to install the VBA enabler first if this causes no problems.


Can anybody (Autodesk) confirm please?

I'm "anybody" ... not Autodesk :smileywink: But you can't install VBA-Enabler before the product it has to be installed for, already exits on that pc. So you have to install first your mechanical and then you can install the VBA-enabler.


The installer of the VBA-Enabler searches what AutoCAD-based products are installed on your pc and then it makes modifications to these products (in registry and in filesystem).
