Why is the Visual Basic Editor grayed out after installing ArcGIS 9.3?

VBA version 6.5 is required for ArcGIS 9.3 (installs with Microsoft Office 2007). This does not get installed automatically when installing ArcGIS using the setup.msi file. One of the more noticeable indicators that the correct version of VBA was not installed is when navigating to Tools > Macros > Visual Basic Editor will be grayed out. However, it can be installed after using the setup.msi file by installing the files referenced below or it can be automatically installed if you use the setup.exe instead of the setup.msi. 

The ArcGIS Installation Guide > Installing ArcGIS Desktop silently, states the following: The installation of ArcGIS Desktop (setup.exe) serves as a single installer that integrates three separate installers required to run ArcGIS Desktop.  If you are deploying ArcGIS Desktop or need to install using setup.msi directly, you will need to install the other setup programs as well. The setup.msi programs and installation order are:

  1. The ArcGIS Desktop setup.msi (with custom installation information supplied below)
  2. <media or administrative installation>VBAVBAOF11.msi /qb  (no installation parameters are required)  
  3. <media or administrative installation>VBA1033VBAOF11i.msi /qb (no installation parameters are required)
