WPDM api reference in 2016

Does anyone with 2016 installed use macros to access the WPDM vault from outside of solidworks?

 

I upgraded my SW version last week and now my macros in excel and MS access that utilize the WPDM API do not work. The ActiveX can't create a connection to WPDM. I thought the reference just needed to be reloaded so I went and unchecked it, ok'd the references dialog, then came back in to try to reestablish it and I get an error in loading DLL message.

 

I opened SW and tried my WPDM macros there and they work fine. It seems to only have affected the macros that run outside of SW. I even tried reloading the reference like in excel  and access. It didn't have any problems. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
