"trust access to visual basic project" greyed out

I have created some VBscripts in Outlook. They worked perfectly until reboot. Now Outlook says I have to enable the macros, however the "trust access to visual basic project" check box is greyed out.

We have SBS 2003 server and the workstation, which the macro is on is running windows XP. How do I solve it?

Hi Zoodiaq,

"trust access to visual basic project" appears to always be greyed out.  In fact I've never found any instructions on how to change that.  Shouldn't make any difference.  I have a ton of macros and they all run fine with that selection greyed out.

Cheers!

Have you set the macro security level to medium or low?  If you have, then the first time a macro runs a dialog-box should appear asking if you want to enable macros.  Select enable.  If you don't want to set the macro security level to medium or low, and I wouldn't recommend low, then you'll need to sign the project(s).  If you have a digital certificate, then use that.  If not, then you can follow the instructions in the link below to create a self-cert.
