And sometimes, the error dialog just pop up without stating specific error!

===== Solution =====


[1] The {Port: 0} error in Windows Live Mail usually relates to anti-virus application, and thus, I tried to disable the email scanning feature of my anti-virus application… but, this cannot resolve the problem.


[2] I suspect that some of the registered interfaces of the DLL files are corrupted. I used REGSVR32 to register them again, and this seems to have resolved the problem. I do not know exactly which DLL is required this time, while here comes my list of REGSVR32 *.DLL…


regsvr32 actxprxy.dll
regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
regsvr32 urlmon.dll
regsvr32 jscript.dll
regsvr32 vbscript.dll

SSMS – Unable to cast COM object of type ‘System.__ComObject’ to interface type ‘Microsoft .VisualStudio .OLE .Interop .IServiceProvider’. Exception from HRESULT: 0x80004002 (E_NOINTERFACE))

I am working on Windows Server 2008 SP1 Datacenter Edition 64-bit, with SQL Server 2008 installed.

After installing Windows IE8, I got the following error upon starting SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) 2008.

===== Error 0x80004002 =====

SSMS – Unable to cast COM object of type ‘System.__ComObject’ to interface type ‘Microsoft.VisualStudio.OLE.Interop.IServiceProvider’. This operation failed because the QueryInterface call on the COM component for the interface with IID ‘{6D5140C1-7436-11CE-8034-00AA006009FA}’ failed due to the following error: No such interface supported (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80004002 (E_NOINTERFACE)). (Microsoft.VisualStudio.OLE.Interop)

===== Solution =====

After a bit of investigation, I found that the registry is somehow corrupted, and the solution is to re-register DLL.

~ Run [ Command Prompt ] (You will need to use the **Run as administrator** option)

~ regsvr32 actxprxy.dll

===== Solution =====

Most probably, what you are trying to do is [ regsvr32 actxprxy.dll ].

For doing this, you will need to use a command prompt that is executed as administrator. So, grab your mouse… and

~ Right-click on the command prompt icon

~ Select [ Run as administrator ]

You may be prompted for administrator credential.

[ Open in New Windows ] and [ Open in New Tab ] commands do not work in Internet Explorer 8 RTW

So, I have installed Internet Explorer 8 on my Windows Server 2008 SP1 Datacenter Edition 64-bit, but… not that smooth. Somehow, something goes wrong somewhere, and I got the following problems after the installation of Windows IE8 RTW.


- In Windows Explorer (I mean those file explorer for browsing folders/files), when I double-click on a folder, a new Windows Explorer is popped up instead of (my default behavior is) showing the folder in the same explorer.


- In Windows IE8, when I right-click a web address on a web page, and then click [Open in New Window] or [Open in New Tab], the web page cannot be opened in a new window / tab.


- In Windows IE8, when I click a link on a web page that uses scripting to open a new window, the new window cannot be opened. (This is absolutely inconvenience as I need to use some kind of banking services immediately, while that bank uses JavaScript to open a new window.)


After investigating the problem for a while, I found that a registry entry was (somehow!) missing after the installation of Windows IE8, that relates to [ actxprxy.dll ].


===== Solution =====


Run [ Command Prompt ] (You will need to **Run as administrator**)


Type the following command. ( regsvr32 actxprxy.dll )

All go smoothly!… and, I am now enjoying the much faster explorer engine.   :)
