You could take note of the address when you're in there and bookmark it.

Ok I have sucessfully executed the commands with no adverse effects. I would suspect you do not have all of the VBA type libraries installed. Since the code is a compiled VLX we cannot look at it to determine the reason it won't work, we can only speculate. Since some Express tools also don't work, I think that if you reinstalled the VBA components it should fix the problem. What you need to realize is that the module likely uses ActiveX VisualLisp commands that require the VBA Type libraries. If you are missing a specific one, then the commands that require that library will not work.

This is going to be a hit/miss for my suggestion.

Try going to Tools>Macro>Visual Basic Editor and see if there is a reference to the application you are having the problem with i.e. (in VBAIDE) Tools>References, scroll down until you see something that has the same name, or make sure that AutoCAD type library is loaded.

Like I said, hit or miss...

So, you are both saying that even though it's a lisp (vlx) file, you can set the references in vba and retrieve them in lisp?

I guess thats what I'm saying. It's either that or you need to load the DLL externally. I used to know how to do that. Let me investigate more into this as I have ample free time.

What I am saying is that the ActiveX components in lisp aka VisualLisp uses the exact same type libraries as VBA, so if you don't have all of the AutoCAD VBA type libraries VisualLisp will not function properly.
