Angry Bevel Plus trouble.....

Im trying to Bevel Plus two CV curves. Both curves are completed/closed, so theres no gaps in the curves at all. Both curves are level along the Y axis, so its flat. When I try to Bevel Plus the two, I keep getting this error. My work history is turned OFF, and I selected the outter curve first, and the curves dont cross each other. Any help?

// Result: bevelPolygon13 bevelPlus1 //
// Error: bevelPlus failed - open script editor for details //

You can only use the Bevel command on closed curves so your cuves are not closed properly. To give an example, just create a circle curve or a square curve or a text curve and then try the Bevel Plus command on that. If it works you'll know your curves are not closed well.

Your not trying to do a Birail are you? Which is in the same menu just a little higher.
