I recently installed ArcGIS 9.3 in a PC with Windows 7.0. I opened an existing mxd file within which I developed some toolbars for a project. Each icon of a toolbar has behind it a VBA and ArcObjects code. Unfortunately, I noticed that icons are all missing and the symbol of each icon has been replaced by a red circle with a slahed line and the commnad of Visual basic editor under the Tools menu is always disabled-inactive, thus I cannot get in the VBA editor.

Can anybody help me please?

I believe that is an indication that VBA is not installed correctly or at all.

See this ESRI help document:

That is one possibility. The other one is that ICommand-enabled/oncreate is throwing an exception – Ragi Yaser Burhum Oct 30 '11 at 16:49
Thanks. I will try to find out the problem based on what you suggest and come back. – Demetris Oct 31 '11 at 9:09
Casey: Thanks. The instructions (regarding msi files) noted in that link helped to solve that problem. – Demetris Oct 31 '11 at 19:50
