Solution or Workaround
- At 8.x VBA can be installed by running the ArcMap_vba.msi under the \Support\Vba6 folder found on the install CD.
- At 9.3 and 9.3.1, VBA can be installed by running the VBAOF11.msi and VBAOF11I.msi under the VBA and 1033 folders found on the install CD.
If installing the VBA from the installation media does not seem to correct this issue, it is recommended that a repair is run on the ArcGIS Desktop install.
To run a repair:
Navigate to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs. Select ArcGIS Desktop and click the Change button. When prompted, select the Repair option.
