    • in reply to: PowerPoint COM Interop – Cannot create ActiveX component #2636628

      Thanks for that info. I am using PowerPoint COM Interop. It was automatically registered during the installation of Microsoft Office.

    • in reply to: PowerPoint COM Interop – Cannot create ActiveX component #2636599

      After more testing, I discovered the “real” root cause.

      When testing using Visual Studio, whether in DEBUG or RELEASE, if Visual Studio is in Admin mode, creating a COM Interop component fails. I don’t know why.

      When I end Visual Studio and start it in non-Admin mode, creating the COM Interop component works fine. When I start Visual Studio in Admin mode, creating the COM Interop component fails.

      Hope this helps someone!

    • No. That doesn’t solve the issue  either.  Both plain text and HTML messages display improperly for the recipient but display properly in the Drafts folder. Both plain text and HTML messages displayed properly for the recipient at the end of December but do not display properly for the recipient after the Office update.

    • Setting only HTMLbody and not setting Body does not solve the issue.

      <p data-prewrap=”true”>In further testing, I found that when sending Plain Text emails using the VBA Macro, the recipient sees this in the body of the email message in the lines before the message text:</p>

      <p data-prewrap=”true”>Instead of the Outlook.Application object, I used the Microsoft CDO for Windows 2000 library to connect directly to the SMTP server (bypassing the Windows Outlook app). Although this library is very old and no longer supported, I was able to send HTML messages that display properly when the recipient opens them. I think this demonstrates that either the Microsoft Office 16.0 Object library, Microsoft Outlook 16.0 Library or the Windows Outlook application is at fault.</p>

      Installed KB5009543 on February 11, 2022.

      Tested CISCO AnyConnect and SonicWall NetExtender VPNs with no problems found.

    • As recommended by @BobT, I updated VS 2019 from 16.9.2 to 16.10.0. The 2021-04 .Net Core 3.1.14 Update for x64 Client disappeared from the Windows Update list. A 2021-04 .NET 5.0.5 Update for x64 Client is now the only item in the Windows Update list and it fails with the code 0x80070643.

    • The 2021-04 .Net Core 3.1.14 Update for x64 Client update started showing on one of my PCs. It fails and displays “Download error – 0x80070643”.

      This update is not in my update history.

      I ran WuReset.bat to reset Windows Update (restart the services and delete the downloads) and this update continues to fail. At this point, I am going to leave it alone and see if MSFT corrects it.

      After much research, I believe the password amnesia issue in Windows Version 2004 Build 19041.508 with Outlook and file shares is caused by the same problem that causes this problem. More info in these posts.

      Windows 10 Version 2004 Problems

      On my Windows Pro 64-bit OS PC, Windows Update installed Windows 10 Version 2004 Build 19041.508 replacing Version 1909. After several days of researching and trying various suggested workarounds, I gave up and rolled back to Version 1909. Then, in Edit Group Policy, I disabled Windows Update.

      In each case below, I included a link where others are complaining about the same problem. As of September 30, 2020, I have not found anything that tells me that Microsoft has acknowledged these problems.

      Outlook forgets passwords

      I tried removing all Outlook accounts and the Outlook Profile, created a new Profile (with a different name) and create all my email accounts. The credentials disappeared after the next restart.

      File shares don’t work

      I have two NAS devices. I can PING the NAS devices but can’t map a drive to them. The Map Network Drive dialog can’t find the NAS device. For existing mapped drives, the password is requested. After entering the username and password, Windows is unable to find or connect to the NAS device.
