Why won't tasks run on other machines

Hey there,

 

Having a strange issue that I can't seem to trouble shoot. We have our vaults setup such that there is a dedicated machine used to handle all task executions (Computer A). There are two other computers (B & C) where development work is done and tweaks to the vault are made. PDM Administration has been configured to allow the three machines as choices for task execution, but it defaults to Computer A. When manually launching tasks, I switched the execution option so this given task will run on another computer (Computer B or C). For some reason, no matter what the task is, it always fails when run on computers B or C with a "Failed to run SOLIDWORKS macro" message. But switching execution back to computer A, it works just fine. I've been troubleshooting for several hours and can't determine what is different about the machines to cause this. I've tried running Administration in administrator mode on computers B & C, but no luck. Any advice is much appreciated.
