It sounds like XMetaL Author is not registered as a COM server on your machine. This is done during installation, so presumably something stopped that from happening. If that is the case then you would get the same kind of error if you run a simple macro like this:

//XMetaL Script Language JScript:
Application.Alert("hello");

Before you mess around changing the XFT I would do the following on a computer where the entire customization is present (DTD, CSS, CTM, XFT, etc):

1. Make sure XMetaL Author is not running. If it is, shut it down.
2. At a Windows Command prompt (CMD) CD into the folder containing your XMetaL Author installation (xmetal90.exe).
3. Run the following command: xmetal90.exe /regserver
Note: there is no feedback.
4. Test the customization as usual.
