Compile error:

    Office Online 365 installed today January 20 on brand new HP Envy. Get the above message when loading Excel applications with code and when running code. Will greatly appreciate help. Applications run well on other computers.

    Hi Jaime,

    >> Compile error: Object library invalid or contains references to object definitions that could not be found
    According to the error message, it seems some ActiveX control is not registered successfully on the new machine.
    Would you mind telling us which ActiveX controls you used in the workbook?
    >> For my applications Excel from Office 365 is now useless. Should I just let my subscription run out and purchase another version?
    According to my experience, this issue is not related to the subscription.

  • Form Controls stop working after December 2014 Updates

    For some users, Form Controls (FM20.dll) are no longer working as expected after installing MS14-082 Microsoft Office Security Updates for December 2014. Issues are experienced at times such as when they open files with existing VBA projects using forms
    controls, try to insert a forms control in to a new worksheet or run third party software that may use these components.
    You may received errors such as:
    "Cannot insert object"
    "Object library invalid or contains references to object definitions that could not be found"
    "The program used to create this object is Forms. That program is either not installed on your computer or it is not responding. To edit this object, install Forms or ensure that any dialog boxes in Forms are closed."  
    * Note In this last error message, the Forms text may also be replaced by the GUID of the control.
    Additionally, you may be unable to use or change properties of an ActiveX control on a worksheet or receive an error when trying to refer to an ActiveX control as a member of a worksheet via code.
    Steps to follow after the update:
    After updating, the cached control type libraries (extender files) may be out of sync. To resolve this issue, you must delete the cached versions of the control type libraries (extender files) on the client computer. To do this, perform a search on your
    hard disk for files that have the ".exd" file name extension and delete all the .exd files that you find. These .exd files will be re-created automatically when you use the new controls the next time that you use VBA. These extender files will be
    under the user's profile and may also be in other locations, such as the following:
    %appdata%\Microsoft\forms
    %temp%\Excel8.0
    %temp%\VBE
    Scripting solution:
    Because this problem may affect more than one machine, it is also possible to create a scripting solution to delete the EXD files and run the script as part of the logon process using a policy. The script you would need should contain the following lines
    and would need to be run for each USER as the .exd files are USER specific.
    del %temp%\vbe\*.exd
    del %temp%\excel8.0\*.exd
    del %appdata%\microsoft\forms\*.exd
    del %appdata%\microsoft\local\*.exd
    del %temp%\word8.0\*.exd
    del %temp%\ PPT11.0\*.exd
    Additional step:
    If the steps above do not resolve your issue, another step that can be tested (see warning below):
    1. On a fully updated machine and after removing the .exd files, open the file in Excel with edit permissions.
    2. Open Visual Basic for Applications > modify the project by adding a comment or edit of some kind to any code module  > Debug > Compile VBAProject.
    3. Save and reopen the file. Test for resolution.
    If resolved, provide this updated project to additional users.
    Warning: If this step resolves your issue, be aware that after deploying this updated project to the other users, these users will also need to have the updates applied on their systems and .exd files removed as well.
    If this does not resolve your issue, it may be a different issue and further troubleshooting may be necessary.

    In case it is of any help in identifying why this update caused errors, the specific instance I have experienced is as follows:
    The application uses Visual Basic (6.5) for Excel.  The piece of code causing an error (438) was as follows:
    Public currcombo(12) As ComboBox 
    Sub comboset()
    '   set up comboboxes for test selection
     With Workbooks(currCRW).Sheets("client results")
    '   set up test selection combo controls
        Set currcombo(1) = .F14
        Set currcombo(2) = .F15
        Set currcombo(3) = .F16
    . . . . .etc
    The error occurred on the first Set statement where 
    In this case (in two environments: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and 32 bit, Excel 2007)  the cure was to uninstall the problem security update KB2596927.

  • Cc Photoshop 2014 update fails error U43M1D206

    cc Photoshop 2014 update fails error U43M1D206. Anyone know how to fix this?

    Thank you for taking the time to help, I appreciate it. I noted the posting in case it helps in future. Unfortunately, didn't help this time. All the other programs update fine - nothing wrong with connection. Photoshop (2014) simply would not apply patch. Also couldn't apply patch manually. Completely uninstalled the program, eventually completely uninstalled every program and Adobe Creative Cloud app altogether. Still didn't help, on reloading Photoshop (2014) still will not patch. In the end I have opted for Photoshop CC (NOT 2014) and it updates fine.

  • After Sept 2014 update Radio stops playing after 4 - 10 minutes.

    Apple TV 3rd generation, rev A.
    After Sept 2014 update Radio stops playing after 4 - 10 minutes. Before update, Apple TV played Radio without problems.
    Apple, please provide a reliable means to roll back to previous state.
    Please DO NOT release another update, as you will break something else.
    I'd rather have trouble free Radio streaming than "A fresh new look for Apple TV".
    Haha, just tried to select my product under the comment section, Apple TV 3 is not even listed, good one Apple!

    Same issues here. Since iOS 8 my Apple TV 3 powers itself down mid airplay, restarts itself, and once off has to be turned by on by it's actual remote. Once it randomly shuts down the Airplay option on all devices is removed and I have to find the remote and click any button to power it back up again. Then it can play for hours or ten minutes and it will just power itself right back off.
    Increasing the sleep timer to 30min from 15min seems to have helped space out the power downs some, but it still seems very random.

  • IPhone 5 dead after July 2014 update

    MY iPhone 5 is dead after update. Apple has no answers but to sell me a new phone.  Any good advice ?

    After last update battery drained within a few hours, same after recharge.  Apple told me I have a dead battery and would replace same model for $260 (sorry, that is not small change and I live 3 hours from next Apple store).  Therefore had a local cyberstore install a new battery, however it drained just like the original.  Any different advice?  I understand that my options with the Apple store may be over since I let the cyberstore touchy it.
    Yup, since Cyberstore performed unauthorized service on the device, the warranty for your iPhone has been voided, and that even includes the $79 battery replacement option from Apple or the $269 Out of Warranty option from Apple.
    You have a paperweight now.  Sell it for parts to someone that performs unauthorized service, like Cyberstore.  Maybe they'll use it for parts to void another person's iPhone.
    Next time, don't get unauthorized service done on your iPhone.

  • Library Lost - Please HeIp I tried updating my old ipod & now all 10,000 songs in my library have an ! next to them and I get the error message "song " " could not be used because the original file could not be found" on every song I try to play

    Please help - this morning I tried updating one of my old ipods for my wife (this ipod hasn't been updated in 2-3 years).  I plugged it into my pc, it was recognized and the software updated.  I created a new playlist and tied to sync the ipod.  This ipod had never been used on this pc/itunes since the pc is only 2 years old.  When I tried to sync the ipod it stated that it would have to erase all the old songs on the ipod prior to syncing.  I clicked ok and it proceeded to wipe out the old ipod and sync the new playlist (~1000 songs).  When the sync was complete there were only 6 songs from the new playlist (all purchased this morning from itunes) on the ipod and to my horror all ~10,000 song on my pc in itunes now have a ! next to them.  Only my recent purchases from itunes do not.  When I click on a song with the ! I get the error message "the song " " could not be used because the original file could not be found."  How do I correct this issue - I am scared to hook my ipads or other ipods to my pc for fear of losing everything?!?!?  I spent 100s of hours burning the 10,000 songs from my cd collection and do not want to have to do it again. 
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    This "original file cannot be found" thing happens if the file is no longer where iTunes expects to find it. Possible causes are that you or some third party tool has moved, renamed or deleted the file, or that the drive it lives on has had a change of drive letter. It is also possible that iTunes has changed from expecting the files to be in the pre-iTunes 9 layout to post-iTunes 9 layout,or vice-versa, and so is looking in slightly the wrong place.
    Select a track with an exclamation mark, use Ctrl-I to get info, then cancel when asked to try to locate the track. Look on the summary tab for the location that iTunes thinks the file should be. Now take a look around your hard drive(s). Hopefully you can locate the track in question. If a section of your library has simply been moved, or a drive letter has changed, it should be possible to reverse the actions.
    Alternatively, as long as you can find a location holding the missing files, then you should be able to use my FindTracks script to reconnect them to iTunes .

  • After I updated my iPhone with IOS 6.1 my old Apple ID keeps popping up on my iPhone for me to type in the password that I no longer know. On the Apple site the Manage my Apple ID says my old Apple ID could not be found. How do I get this to stop?

    I just updated my iPhone with the newest update IOS 6.1. My old Apple ID keeps popping up on my iPhone for me to type in the password that I no longer know. All the passwords I type in do not work. I no longer have access to this email which is my old Apple ID. After installing the newest software update my old Apple ID came up to finish configuring. Since I no longer have access to this Apple ID and email account and after trying some passwords I skipped the step. It then said FaceTime, iCloud (which I do not use), and more may not work. I clicked that it was OK since I could not remember the password to my old Apple ID. I then went to my settings to be sure my newer email was my Apple ID by typing in my current Apple ID and password.  Also, I went to Manage my Apple ID online and my old Apple ID could not be found. Is it OK I skipped that step in the IOS 6.1 configuration? How do I get my old Apple ID to stop popping up?

    Blue
    It sounds like you restored from an old back-up.  Did you back-up just before your software update?  It will use your last one and if your last back-up was a ywear old then it will use that one.
    In general, if you are getting these messages on your iPhones select logout (when you get that Apple Id request) and then log back in with your newer ID.
    Sorry for your losses.
    Cheers
