FATAL ERROR: Duplicated Service Name: SERVICE_VBA

My staff is starting to get the following fatal error when opening AutoCAD ACA 2010:


FATAL ERROR: Duplicated Service Name: SERVICE_VBA


We think taht this is happening after oening a session of AutoDesk Impression and then closing the Impression session and starting AutoCAD. We have corrected this by deleting the username directory under the C:\documents & Settings directory.  Obviously we wuold like to fix the problem without using this work around.  Any idease would be greatly appreciated.


Thank You,

Uninstall the AutoCAD VBA Enabler should solved the problem.


I am getting the same error when I downloaded and update the VBA Enabler for my AutoCAD Architecture 2010. Unfortunately have to uninstall it in order to run ACAD. Hopefully Autodesk will find the solution as I need to run the ACAD with VBA enabled. :mansad:
