Ooooops. "'VBE6EXT.OLB' could not be loaded."

I used the "Add and Remove Programs" feature to uninstall Visual Basic from my Windows 7 Ultimate workstation, not realizing that SolidWorks needed it.

 

I've re-installed MS Visual Basic 2010 Express, and noted that a new "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\VBA\VBA6\VBE6EXT.OLB" file was created the first time I launched the app, but alas, SolidWorks is still throwing up the same message every time I launch:

 

"'VBE6EXT.OLB' could not be loaded."

 

Curious, I also tried to create a Macro (which had worked before), and after choosing a file location was warned in a dialog entitled "Microsoft Visual Basic":

 

"Unexpected error; quitting"

 

Any ideas as to how to fix this, short of re-installing SW from scratch? I'm currently traveling on business and don't have access to the SW discs.

 

Little help? Thanks!
