Hello Team,

i use the Program ProgeCad Professional 2010 in combination with my own in C# written Program.
It works fine on my computer and on other computers.
But on some computer it does not work.
So when my program want to start the ProgeCad then we got a error message.

System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80040154): Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {06200386-F06F-41F8-920A-A1CB301B7EEC} failed due to the following error: 80040154

It seems that the setup does not register some required dlls in the Windows registry.
Please, can you help me, what i have must do that the program can start again.
Sould i register dlls File manually ?

We also try de and install the Software again, but without success.

Thank you for your help

Hi ftauto!


Good to see you back.

Alas progeCAD 2010 is too old for us to give any specific support for anymore.

That being said, from a general (topical) loophole point of view, we can say this much:

The error is a Windows error, not necessarily progeCAD-specific.
It means that the class id 06200386-F06F-41F8-920A-A1CB301B7EEC is not in the registry
Is this your application's COM class ID?

Check HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{06200386-F06F-41F8-920A-A1CB301B7EEC}


PS you should really think about upgrading.
