Hi guys after installing Office 2013 Inventor was working fine but now just doesn't want to work and just pops up with around 6 Critical errors of VBA failed to initialize in a row. I'm a student using the student edition which was downloaded, Inventor is installed on a HDD while office didn't give me an option so its on my SSD (boot drive).
I used windows control panel to repair and reinstall (not uninstall removal and reinstall).
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Solved! Go to Solution.
We found that installing Office 365 will remove a local copy of VBA module (but VBA will be virtualized)
This has been known as DID 1499449 in our product database and we are currently working with
Microsoft and trying to find out a solution.
One workaround is to install VBA via executing VBA7.msi under … Setup\3rdParty\x64\VBA (for 64bit system),
or… Setup\3rdParty\x86\VBA (for 32-bit system) from the install media.

What version of inventor are you using? If you are using 2013 or older you need to find the latest update for inventor. Office 2013 runs on Microsoft.net 4.5 framework and the latest inventor update should make it run from that as well.
Hope this helps.
I have the same problem.
My Autodesk Inventor 2014 worked fine. But after installing Office 2013 i'm getting the same message.
"VBA ailes to initialize properly. Please restart Inventor."
After the message Autodesk Inventor 2014 starts, but when I want to open or create a file the message pops up again.
Please refer the following TS link:
Autodesk and Microsoft are working togather to resolve this in the future release.

Just an update to this thread because I found it to help me through exactly the same instance of errors stated previously in this thread. I was getting an error about VBA - "failed to initialize"...
I searched my system disk/hard drive for the file [VBA7.msi], found it, ran it, and it solved my VBA error when openning Inventor. I began using Office 365 this afternoon and when I returned to inventor, I began seeing the errors.
Thanks for the solution to the previously stated problem, it helped me.
