Command Button not working anymore?

In attached file the green command button on the MasterCopy sheet no longer has a hand or I cannot execute it.

Why did this all of a sudden stop and how would I fix it?

It used to open with something like "Set Default" file save location".  After that is set, the three create buttons would save a .sif file to that folder.  Also after default location was set, that would display in the CommandButton so we knew were it was saving too.  now nothing.

Not sure what is going on but would like this fixed...  Please advise and thanks.

That CommandButton is an ActiveX control, where as the remaining buttons on the sheet are Forms controls.

There was a recent Office update that has caused issues with ActiveX controls. One fix is to search for and delete any files with ".exd" file extension as these were left behind from the update and are no longer needed. See here.
