The remote procedure call failed. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706BE) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a Windows Application called by a Windows service using VS 2010. The Windows App will open Excel work book to read data.

    In the Windows app I use Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel, version 14 and have code

    exlApp = new Excel.ApplicationClass();

    When we run the Windows App at server with MS Server 2016 Standard and MS Office Professional Plus 2019  sometimes it works fine but sometimes we get error: The remote procedure call failed. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706BE)

    Please help how to solve this problem and make it run stable.
