MSProject addin create an 1101 error when run on MSP2016, but works fine with MSP2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I use an addin to send my task information from MSProject to the Clarity.

    my MSProject Addin is working properly when I use MSProject2010, Clarity v15 and Clarity PPM Addin v14.

    When I switch to different environment (MSP2016, Clarity v15 and Clarity PPM Addin v 15, subroutine (below) returns an 1101 error. It is strange, because errors is generated in different lines of this subroutine even the same Project file is used.

    This subroutine is rather simple, it  rewrite the MSProject values to the Clarity buffer.

    All MSGboxes are temporary fot debugging  (except the last one)

    Any ideas about the reason?

    Private Sub AllignTasks(ByRef iLocalTask As MSProject.Task, ByRef iClarityTask As MSProject.Task)

            Dim vShortName As String
            Dim vMilestoneTag As String
            Dim vTaskNameLength As Integer

            Dim vFlag As Boolean

            vFlag = False

            On Error GoTo ErrHandler
            MessageBox.Show("sTART date= " & iLocalTask.Start & vbLf & "Start date Baseline= = " & iLocalTask.BaselineStart & vbLf _

            If Len(iLocalTask.Name) > 150 Then
                vMilestoneTag = GetMilestoneOrObjectiveTag(iLocalTask.Name)

                vShortName = Left(iLocalTask.Name, vTaskNameLength) & "... " & vMilestoneTag
