Add-In Macro not available 2010

I use Add-Ins all the time and have the folders all added to the

The error I am getting is "Cannot run the macro " xxx Macro Location xxx". The Macro may not be available in this workbook or all macros may be disabled."

I developed the macro and add-in on this machine, and have used it several times, but for some reason it is failing to work. I am inside a network and have checked the File Permissions, I have Full Control turned on. I even tried changing hte author of the file from Crystal Reports to me and resaved the file (even though when I developed the Add-in and used it inthe past I did not have to do that.)

I suppose I could try copying the Add-In code to the xls file and using it directly, and will probably do that if I need to in order to get the job done, but I should not have to do that. I have checked, and the Add-In is a .xla Add-in and it is being used on a .xls file.

I have seen this a few times, and wonder if anyone else has had it happen

Have you (or some one else) increased the security settings in Excel to Disable all macros without notification ? Just a stab in the dark.

That would have been an easy one :) Nope, and I also notice that there is no longer an option to "enable ALL macros (not recommended) " on the list.
