Bake Vertex Animation

Hi all together.
I have big Problem, i actually try to bake a Vertex Animation witout success.
I have a animated Loft wich is extruded along two rails.
It have two profiles and two Rails where only the second Profile is animated along the Rails.
Now i need to bend the Rail Curves but after bending it with the Bend deformer the Profile loses the connection to the Rails and there is no Surface anymore.
So i thought it would maybe run when i try to bake the Animation of my Railed Surface ( the Vertex ) than i can delete the Profiles and Rails to only Bend the Surface, but i cant Bake the Vertex and i get alway this error messages:

// Error: line 0: Shape pPlaneShape1 has construction history. Baking relative control point animation //

Maybe someone know a better script, Plugin or tip how to solve this problem.

thanks in advance
