    The config is identical to mine so that's not the source of the issue.

    The only time I've seen the buttons greyed out like that before is if I have 2 instances of Revit open, and open the macro editor on instance #1, the buttons are greyed out on instance #2. I don't think that there is any way around this limitation.

    I'm afraid I'm out of suggestions - I'd try disabling and re-enabling macros but I doubt that will do anything. Uninstalling and reinstalling Revit would be the final thing I'd try.

    Did you actually go through the entire process of making the module? Under the project tab the Module button is enabled but if I actually give it a new is doesn't create it. the create module button is completely greyed out under the Application tab.

    Yes, it all works fine for me. Nothing is greyed out under the Application or the Project tab.

    yup tried uninstalling/reinstalling. no luck.. Autodesk support is horrible. been 4 days and not so much as 1 reply outside of the automated one. Pay them too much money to be ignored. Thanks for trying!

    Yes, R2 with update 4 installed.
    I don't know if uninstalling would actually delete the directory where macro files reside. Try uninstalling, and deleting C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Revit\Macros\2015 if it's still there. I'd also delete C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\RVT 2015 just to be safe.
    Autodesk actually seems to respond quite quickly in the Revit API forum generally. Not sure if that's where you asked for help, but I'd give it a try (it appears to be down at the moment though).

    Actually your OP states your chosen option as "Ask before enabling document macros" and that's also what is shown in your image. I asked, 'Have you tried checking"Enable document macros"' which is a different option.
    Glad you got it sorted though.

    Thank you. This also worked for me in Revit 2015. SharpDevelop crashed and took down Revit while working on an Application macro. After that I could run the Application macros I already had but I could not edit nor create any new Application macros. Project macros were not affected. I could run, edit and create those without any problems. In other words, SharpDevelop was perfectly enabled for Project macros but not for Application macros. This problem did not affect the Revit 2014 installation also present.

    Prior to finding this thread, which surprisingly seemed to be the only mention for this problem found, I had tried removing all traces of the macros from C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Revit\Macros\2015\Revit\Ap pHookup\. That removed whatever Application macros were present in Revit 2015 but did not re-enable the IDE functionality. In hindsight the folder name "AppHookup" should have been a clue.
