AutoCAD VBA is not currently installed error

March 9, 2021 Ryan Wunderlich

You installed AutoCAD VBA extensions and when launching a VBA code or typing in VBA commands (like VBAIDE, VBARUN, VBAMAN, etc), AutoCAD pops up and tells you AutoCAD VBA is not installed.

This can be caused by a few factors, but if you've followed the guidance in the Autodesk KB and still cannot get it to run, then the issue may not be the installer, but some core files that are missing/corrupt.

Here's what I normally do to correct it:

1. Uninstall the AutoCAD VBA Extension

2. Do a full rebuild of the C++ libraries:

3. After the rebuild, please reinstall the AutoCAD VBA extension and see if the issue is now resolved.
