I have a excel based application created using Excel4 macros and VBA. It throws "Microsoft Visual Basic System Error &H80004005 (-2147467259)" error at startup when using McAfee antivirus. The same application works fine with other antivirus. Is there any security option in McAfee to block VBA and excel4 macros? Please let me know do we have any option to block macros through McAfee settings?
Probably if the programs is not granted an access under the firewall section , we might see issues starting it up just that McAfee doesn’t want any unknow programs to do a automatic start without the user knowledge.
Please check the following within McAfee security center ;
If the above doesnt fix the issue, Please let us know;
What is the name of the software ? probably with version no.
What operating system ?
At present do you use any other security software ?
Version of your Virus scan
Thanks for you reply.
I hope this issue is not because of firwall settings. My application has nothing to do with internet or firewall. It is a simple desktop appliaction created using excel 2003 works in Windows XP. Since i am getting this system error, i guess there might be some setting in Mcafee antivirus that probably blocks my excel4 macros. Do McAfee provide any such option ?
Could you please let us know the version of your virus scan . Also just in case did you follow the steps in my previous post to check if everything is set right!!!
