Synctoy 2.1 Failed to Create Folder Pair - Error ID 80040154 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Synctoy 2.1 is giving me the error:

    Failed to create Folder Pair. Retrieving the COM Class Factory for component with CSLID {C201C012-C929-4D72-B9C5-341D48630630} failed due to the following error 80040154.

    It is NOT a new installation and previous folder pairs worked fine.  However, the problem has started to occur recently on any new pair that I try to create.

    I don't have any other active pairs in use because I use Synctoy intermittently to achieve specific tasks - so my pairs "come and go" as I need them

    I have re-installed several times but the problem persists.

    I'm using  Windows XP Professional SP3 on a Dell M4300 laptop - Windows patch updates are controlled by a central IT department. The following Sync elements are installed

    • Microsoft Sync Framework 2.0 Core Components (x86) ENU and
    • Microsoft Sync Framework 2.0 Provider Services (x86) ENU

    Any advice ?
