Application popup: <ActiveX exe name> - Application Error : The instruction at "0x73590d87" referenced memory at "0x00000008". The memory could not be "read"


  • Getting this pop up on my Windows 2003 server. At the same time I find this in event viewer:

    The VB Application identified by the event source logged this Application <Activex Exe name>: Thread ID: 17288 ,Logged: MsgBox:  , Run-time error '5':

    Invalid procedure call or argument

    Recently we have migrated our Windows Services to another box, both old and new box have Windows 2003, the only difference is old box has Office 2003(Excel and VBA) and new box has Office 2007 (Excel and VBA)

    Event viewer entries are present in my old box, but it never gave this popup and never hang my service which uses my Activex exe.

    Any idea why this popup started coming on new box ? REG_DWORD setting is same in both box.
