Running VBA Macro in AutoCAD?

I'm making a .bundle folder for the plugins I've programmed for AutoCAD. At the root of the folder is my PackageContents.xml bundle where all of my Lisp plugins are autoloaded. Since .dvb is not a supported type for Autoloading I made a Lisp file to be autoloaded with the following code (defun C:CSC () (vl-vbaload "WindowsDoors.dvb") (vl-vbarun "WindowsDoors.dvb!CAD_STANDARD_CREATOR!CAD_STANDARD_BLOCK!CAD_STANDARD_PATH") ) The code runs and puts my plugin, WindowsDoors.dvb into AutoCAD but when I try to use the plugin the command line gives me the following Command -vbarun Initializing VBA System Macro name: RunMeWindowDoor Execution error Normally this would suggest a bug in the code except when I manually load this plugin with AutoCAD 2014's built in application loader under the manage tab it works fine leaving me with no idea what is wrong.
