Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {0006F03A-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} failed due to the following error: 80080005 Server execution failed (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80080005 (CO_E_SERVER_EXEC_FAILURE))

To whom it may concern,

I spent several hours debugging the error below. Ultimately the resolution was to run outlook as an administrator. I’m running windows 10 pro build 1909

20.4.0-beta.472

Hi @PatrickReddy

Just to keep you in the loop -> this issue should be fixed in our following release :slight_smile:

Was this issue resolved? I’m started seeing it this morning and I’m on 2020.4.1. My company is planning on updating to 2020.10 at the end of the month. Is there an interim fix? There was another post in the forum about a registry entry, but I don’t want to circumvent a security policy.

Hi @david.mowry

The issue should be fixed starting from 20.6, which means that the latest 20.10 Enterprise will have it included.
