Expanding a macro in a custom action

I created a global macro:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<macros version='9'>
<macro name='TF_EXE_PATH'>
<description>Path, including the exe file to your local systems TF.exe</description>
<value>%DEVSTUDIO_NET_DIR%\Common7\IDE\TF.exe</value>
</macro>
</macros>

Inside my custom action (C#), I try to expand the macro like so:
IMacros macros = builder.App.get_Macros( MacroTypeEnum.vbldMacroGlobal );
builder.LogMessage( builder.App.ExpandMacros( Convert.ToString( macros[ "TF_EXE_PATH" ].Value ) ) );

When I run my step, I get the following error:
Exception: System.NotImplementedException: The method or operation is not implemented.

at VersionManager.Manager.CheckoutAIFile(String AssemblyInfoPath, IStep step, Builder builder)

I've tried using:
builder.ExpandMacros(...)
builder.App.ExpandMacros(...)
builder.App.ExpamdMacrosAndScripts(...)

All of them say that the method isn't implemented.

Any suggestions I could try?

Thanks,

Craig
