Code results in a runtime error 53... sometimes

I have a macro (a very early in my skill level macro) on 3D ContentCentral since 2009. Over the years it has stopped working because it was wasn't very adaptive and the change from windows XP to beyond caused it to break.

 

So after being contacted by a downloader I updated it to work once more and be a bit more adaptive.

 

Even though I updated it to make it work on newer systems; some people keep getting run-time error

 

The code crashes in the first few lines of the first function at...

 

swModel.GetTitle

 

...what happens is the computer throws up a runtime error 53

 

I've never seen this piece of code fail before.

 

Had a look around and there seems to be various causes, but ive never had to do any of the fixes to make the macro work.

 

Does anyone have any ideas? It's probably something really simple.
