Endplate Connection - bug when ASD maximized

663 Views, 2 Replies

When connection - endplate - apex macro popup window appears, while ASD maximized, instead of being able to input connection parameters there are two RbctMacroLoader popups – that cannot be dismissed (shown in attached picture).

One showing

    Automation Error

    It is illegal to call out while inside a message filter.

whenever confirmed or closed immediately reappears – seems to be some kind of infinite loop.

The only way to dismiss them is to end RbctMacroLoader process through Task Manager.


The function works properly if the program window isn’t maximized.

Only on specific file?


Please explain it wider maybe.

I could not have chance to repeat it.

Nonspecific file.

Any time that function is started, while ASD window is maximized, it will produce that error before I’m able to input any connection parameter.

If the ASD window isn’t maximized – it will work; I am able to switch between macro tabs, define connection parameters, apply, modify etc.

So there is workaround, I just wanted to report it but it might be just something specific to my setup. I’m using ASD 2012 with SP3 and all hotfixes installed on Windows Vista SP2.
