I have a users machine that is displaying some odd behaviour. Their Macros and VBA Editor buttons have stopped working. We have tried several things already but nothing appears to have any effect.
Here is an update of the behaviour from my colleague; (Worth noting we are using our own project file and have the App Options pointing to a local server where the edited Default.ivb sits).
IT did a reinstall on pc but it still doesn’t work.
I tested it on another new win7 pc and it had the same problem.
We’re a bit at a lost, because there seems to be no structure here.
I’ve checked with all new win7 machines that are in use now, of which 4 work ok, 6 not.
On the win7 test machine I got te message from the attached screen print.
If I try to do macro when I have a part open I get nothing
If I try to do macro when I have a drawing open I get this message:
And then nothing.
If I try to do macro with no file open I do get the macro window,
If I do VBA editor I get the editor but it says “no project”, even if I open a file which has code in it.
Can we assume that all Win7 systems had Inventor installed using these instructions?
Ah, no Dennis we cannot assume that. We are subject to corporate IT and i doubt all of the items would have tick beside them. I shall pass it on.
I would like to assume however that all the installations were done in the same way and majority of them are working including my own. For the sake of a solution though i will ask them to re-do one machine as per the link and will report back.
Without getting into other things this problem has still not been resolved. There is no project loaded in the VBA editor. I managed to find one other example of this on the web where a persons Outlook vbaproject.otm file had been corrupted.
I did a search but cannot find this file on the mahchines. Is there an equivalent file that somehow controls the vba window for Inventor?
We have the same problem. VBA Editor and VBA not working on a win7-64bit machine. Found a solution yet?

Hi. No solution yet. I have been through many more things that i have not listed here. Also Rocky has posted a few times on another thread i have in the customization forum.

Have you tried coping the Default.ivb to "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Inventor 20XX\bin\Macros" and updated your App Options?
