Startup Error: There was an error loading a macro

When starting Alteryx Designer, I see this error window pop up:

I need to close the window to continue the startup.

I have tried the steps here https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Designer-Discussions/Error-while-loading-Object-reference-n... and https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Designer-Knowledge-Base/Error-while-loading-Object-referenc... but the error still occurs.

 

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this error?   Trying to avoid a re-install.

The cause of this error was due to a yxmc file of size 0.

The macro was located in the folder and subfolder specified in the Options > User Settings > Edit User Settings > Macros tab search path.

Thank you to Alteryx Customer Support ... great job troubleshooting!
