Error when using office automation (Office 2010 64 bit) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a program that uses office (Excel, outlook) to perform some automation tasks. With outlook it doesn’t work with the debug message:

    .05.2015 08: 13: 57,997 - [Error] Email Report: Cannot be created and displayed: The COM class factory for component with CLSID {0006F03A-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} could not be accessed due to the following error: 80004023 there is an error in the Microsoft Software installer. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80004023).

    I am running Windows 7 64 and Office 2010 Pro 64 bit.  I had originally installed the 32bit version of office and automation worked.  I uninstalled the 32 bit and installed the64 bit.  I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times to no avail.  I have used the "Fix It" utility in addition to the Control Panel uninstall.

    I have tried deleting the registry key at HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID0006F03A-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} as stated in some blog but it doesn’t help.

    Any suggestions on this is highly appreciated. Many thanks.
