There was an ST in previous versions of building apps related to Microsoft Office (might also include MS Windows) security patches rendering MSVBA COM control inaccessible. It produced similar errors to what you've encountered, as well as errors utlizing specific VBA tools in ABD and other building products.
Not sure if it's related, but may be worth a try to implement.
"ST Description: user is unable to draw pipe/bar joist
Our V8i SELECTseries2 BIM applications were not tested with Office 2010
installed, so there may be an issue with how our VBA tools behave with this
combination. We are hoping to have this resolved in the upcoming AECOsim
Building Designer release, but in the interim it is recommended to use Office 2007
instead which has been fully tested against our applications.
Currently, Structural VBA macros throws VBA interface errors when ABD is
installed with MS Office 2010.
The workaround is to manually register MSCOMCTL.Ocx.
1. To register it right click that file and choose ‘open with’ ‘select
program from list’ click ‘browse’ and browse to the following file
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ and double click on the ‘regsvr32.exe’ file. You will
get a message that it was successfully registered.
Additionally there is Microsoft documentation and Fix it applet related.
