Trying to generate a COM Proxy and see the errors below. Have selected the "Automatically generate missing UUID" option, but the error still persists:

"Error MIDL2088: [uuid] format is incorrect; Warning MIDL2214: semantic check incomplete due to previous errors"

MIDL2088/MIDL2214 messages usually mean that requested authorizations were not received due to model object conflicts.
Running the Expansion Conflict Report will show who else has subsets checked out.
Everything in conflict should be checked backed back into the Encyclopedia. Then check out the needed subsets and try generating the COM Proxies again.
