System Error &H80004005 (-2147467259) RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are getting this error on one PC every time we turn on any add-ins in Excel.  Googling the issue has not produced any useful results nor has searching the Microsoft KB.  The problem occurs when any add-in is turned on in Excel even those that come with Excel (like the Euro conversion tool).  The problem began when the user was having issues with Outlook not working with his profile.  I first tried a 'repair' of the Office install (which created this problem, but did not solve the other.)  I solved the Outlook issue by creating a new profile for the user.  I have since uninstalled Office entirely and reinstalled.  My efforts to solve the problem have lead me to the belief that this is a Visual Basic problem.

    Hope you can help.

    OS:  XP pro sp3.
    Office:  2003 Pro.


    P.S.  Although I keep trying to 'Ask a new question' from the Visual Basic forum the system keeps asking me to choose a forum and none of my choices are the Visual Basic forum.  Instead when I try to post I get a 'Select a Forum Category' which has no option for the forum I need.  I have spent the last 30 minutes trying to figure out how to post this in the Visual Basic forum and now I'm tired of messing with it.  If you are a forum mod please move this to that forum.

  • I got this error with a VB 6 application that was trying to write a log event to application log on Windows XP. 
    The application log was full.
