Initializing Network dataset workspace extension VB.NET problem

I have an add in tool that is basically compiling routes of people travelling to work. It is a large tool ( a lot of code) and it worked a month ago. When I came back to use it yesterday it suddenly doesn't work any more. I think I've narrowed it down to the RouteClass which was designed from the Route Layer sample here
http://help.arcgis.com/en/sdk/10.0/arcobjects_net/conceptualhelp/index.html#//00010000041z000000

My code seems to crash when I initialize the routeclass. I'll post the section where I think it is going wrong.

MsgBox("6 " + startpoint.X.ToString)                  routeClass.Init()                 route1 = routeClass.SolveRoute()                 If Not route1 Is Nothing Then                      startOID = OutputDatabase1.WriteToRouteTableRowField(person_number, route1)                     route1length = route1.Length                     MsgBox("99" + route1length.ToString)                 Else                     route1length = 0                 End If                  crowflies = crowFliesDistance(startpoint, endpoint)                 MsgBox("22" + crowflies.ToString)             End If         End If


This is only a small section of the code, the message boxes are for me to see where the code stops. The last message box that worked is MsgBox("6 " + startpoint.X.ToString) .

Here is my RouteClass

Again, this worked a month ago. I think the problem is with routeclass.init() . The rest of the code should be fine even if it doesn't follow conventional methods. I have initialised the licence for arcgis in another part of my code.
