"Error Loading View :Macro Name Required."
Trying to install VisBuildPro (5.3) on win2000 Professional (SP3) .

It installs fine. But when I try to run it I get this error:

"Error loading view: macro name required"

It loads the sample project, but can't load the macros? I also just tried adding macros and it gave same error.

any ideas?

One of the macros being loaded (or possibly an environment variable, if 'Tools | Application Options | Macros | Include environment variables in system macros' is checked) does not have a name. At startup, macros are loaded from the global macros file (see for the location), and any macros in the project file are loaded when a .bld file is opened. The GUI and object model don't allow creating a macro without a name, so I'm not sure what went wrong. Can you:

1) Temporarily uncheck the option mentioned above and restart VBP to see if that is the issue.
2) If the problem still occurs, post or send your VisBuildPro.macros global macros file and the .bld file you're opening to
