We have deployed Autcad 2014 through Group Policy's. All works very well without any issues. However we need to deploy the VBA Enabler aswell.
We have the 2012 VBA Enabler working through Group Policy's. Here we have put the vba6.msi from the *VBA Enabler download folder*\3drParty\VBA folder and the AcVbaInstaller.msi *VBA Enabler download folder*\x86\AcVbaInstaller folder in a Policy.
I did the same with the 2014 VBA Enabler download (ofcourse with the Vba71.msi) but when I start Autocad 2014 it says the VBA Enabler is not installed when I want to run the VBA editor.
Any ideas what I am missing here?

Guess I have figured out what goes wrong. When you install the VBA Enabler MSI silently it doesn't check if Acad 2014 is installed. So it always installs the Enabler but the Enabler should be installed after Acad 2014 has been installed. If I just double click the MSI I'll get a message that Acad 2014 hasn't been installed and the installation cannot continue.
Anyone knows how to modify the msi so it also check for Acad 2014 when installed silently?
I've managed to fix this issue.
As said there is a product check in the msi when you run it manually. This check is not present when you run a silent installation. I've created a mst wich adds this check to the InstallExecuteSequence and writes an entry in the event log when it finds that Autocad 2014 isn't installed.
