How To Repair The 80080005 Error In Windows 7
The 80080005 error is caused when you try and run programs that are not coded correctly to work on Windows. More specifically, if you try and run COM+ applications under a variety of different users that are specified in the “This User” property, the computer cannot distribute the memory sufficiently and the process cannot start. COM (Component Object Model) is a binary interface standard introduced by Microsoft. It can be used to enable “interprocess communication” and “dynamic object creation” in a large range of programming languages. It is vital for use in Windows 7
What Causes The 80080005 Error?
You will know if you receive this error by this message:
Catalog Error: An error occurred while processing the last operation. Error code 80080005 — server execution failed. The event log may contain additional troubleshooting information.
What this error message is explaining is that there are too many user accounts attempting to access many of these COM+ applications and the computer can not share the memory resources sufficiently enough for this application to start. This error is due to errors in the registry. These errors cause the application to become confused and it cannot complete its task.
How To Fix The 80080005 Error
Step 1 – Edit The Registry
The registry is the central archive of your computer system. It is where the system stores all the data about everything on your PC, this could be device drivers or software installations. A wrong entry in the registry can cause errors, such as the 80080005 error, to appear. This particular method explains how you should solve this problem.
- Click Start > Run > type “Regedit” in the open box > click OK
- In the Registry editor that opens, navigate to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\SubSystems. You can do this by, in the Registry Editor window, clicking Edit on the toolbar > Find and typing in the value above.
- Right click on the “Windows” entry that appears and click “Modify”. The “Edit String” dialog box will appear
- In the “Value Data” box, locate SharedSection, add 512 to SharedSection and then click OK.
This method grants the application more privileges when the hardware is computing how much memory is required for each task. Increasing the amount of memory the CPU distributes to the software will increase the ability of it and reduce and eliminate the 80080005 errors that may be appearing in Windows 7.
Step 2 – Clean Out The Registry
The ‘registry’ is one of the causes of the 80080005 error, and is continually making your PC run slowly & with errors as a result. The registry is a big database inside the Windows system, which stores vital settings, options and information for your computer. It’s where your system & all your software stored settings that your computer requires to run. The problem is that Windows often uses this database so much that it saves many parts of it in the wrong way, causing it to become damaged & corrupted. To ensure this is not a problem, it’s recommended you use a ‘registry cleaner’ program to scan through your PC and repair the various errors that could be causing a problem.
