When trying to add a path to a macro this will lead to the below error.
Nested Macro locations are not supported
This is caused by a corrupted AddOnData folder in %ProgramData%\Alteryx\DataProducts.
1. Close Designer
2. Rename the AddOnData folder in %ProgramData%\Alteryx\DataProducts
3. Restart Designer (to recreate the AddOnData folder)
As always if you encounter issues please feel free to reach out to Alteryx Customer Support.
