VBACode Error

We are getting an error of 1706 when trying to open our main application (ArcGIS) after installing Office 2010 ProPlus.  It sems like it is looking for a file called VBACore but I can find very little informaiton on this file.  We used a network install that does not load the installation files onto the harddrive and I fear this might be the problem.  However, when I go to the installation files on the network I don't see any files with the word CORE even in them.  

I tried uninstalling Office 2010 and then reinstalling them but got these same errors.  Anyone have an idea of what file it might be looking for?  I feel like if I could just point it to the correct dll or something that everything would be happy.

That is where I got the reinstall idea from and move the install files to another drive that I knew they were mapped to.

yeah I did not get that comment either and thought it was a little rude.

Also please delete question as a complete uninstall and reinstall of the ARCGIS software seems to have solved the problem.

Thanks,

The "general rule of thumb" with any CAD software that has a programmable interface, such as Arc and Autodesk software is that the CAD software is the last piece of software installed to prevent the missing file problems you encountered.

This is especially true with Microsoft programs ... since MS seems to think they always know what's best, they often delete files from the common folder locations that other software uses because the MS version is newer or better.  99% of the time these common files are deleted without notification, as you witnessed first hand.

Also as you discovered, reinstalling your software will either re-install the missing core/support files or will at least modify the registery entries to look for the "newer" microsoft file.  Becareful allowing automatic updates to Microsoft Office also.  This has bit me in the arse more than once too.

Can I have the 500 points please?  Sorry another "expert" was rude apparently.

Per Admin and because the solution I used ended up being the one I found on my own.
