When the Project Manager starts, or when other options are selected (such as accessing a menu option) the following appears: Automation failed, exit with error code 80080005.
This can result from the absence of Windows NT Service Pack 3. WinNT Service Pack 3 is required to run Foundation F1.5/F1.5i. Service Pack 3 may be downloaded from Microsoft at http://www.microsoft.com
This can be the result of a bad registery setting for xie32.exe or the executable itself missing from fndtn\bint\nt. Before modifying the registry, copy xie32.exe to the correct directory.
Verifying the registry setting using the following steps:
1- Goto "Start -> Run", type regedit and select "Ok". 2- In the Registry Editor select "Edit -> Find". 3- In the Find dialog enter xie32. 4- The path displayed must point to the currently installed xie32.exe. This executable is located in the fndtn\bin\nt directory. 5- If the path is incorrect, select "Default" and right click with the mouse. This will open the Edit String dialog allowing you to modify the path. 6- Save the registry and exit. 7- Restart Foundation.
