I was working on one of our workstations the other day and could not get a macro to run (using Inv 2011). Tried to start VBA editor to see if it was even loading and the editor would not start. Reboot didnt help. So I turned off the UAC and did a repair installl. Rebooted and it started working then.
I ma sure you have done all of that, but that is what worked for me.
Hi. We had already uninstalled/reinatelled once but i tried repairing again for good measure. Still not working though.
Today I found the solution of the VBA mystery.
My plan of attack:
I noticed the only difference with other computers where the VBA module worked was the installation of Inventor 2011 (This is not the cause of the problem). So i did on the problem computer.
Whet running the VBA in Inventor 2011 I got the following error:
object library invalid or contains references to object definitions that could not be found
Google told me something of activeX and cash files. In short, you have to delete all the activeX cashfiles to solve the problem so i did. After that, VBA worked again in 2011 and 2012.
How to remove activeX cash files:
open the command window (cmd.exe) and type:
cd c:\ DEL /S /A:H /A:-H *.EXD
Essentially the command recursively deletes all your hidden and exposed exds. That will make all your activeX components load a bit slower the first time you use them again, but it should also clear out the problematic ones.

It's solved here!
But I can't say it's whether because of clearing the cashfiles or installing the SP1 for Inventor 2012 (I did both).
So Klaas I would say half a kudo!!
Installing the SP1 did not work for me and for Inventor 2011 so i must be the cashfiles
Same Problem here..
Inventor 2014 (came with FDS2014), VBA Editor /MAcros button is not working.
Load VBA on start-up is not available in Application Options.
Can somebody point out me in right direction.
Found the solution by myself. It is Here.
Thanks for reply..
