The runtime error 429 is a Visual Basic error. Users get it when they try to instantiate programs that use Visual Basic (for example, MS Office).

Why

The user faces this error when the Component Object Model (COM) is unable to create the required automation object and therefore Visual Basic does not receive the automation object.

We may try the following solutions to solve the problem:



Solution 1] SFC scan

An SFC scan could help find sector problems on your hard drive and fix them, which could be very helpful for this problem.

1] Find the command prompt in the Windows search bar and right click on the icon. Select Run as administrator.

2] Type the following command and press Enter to execute it:

DISM.exe / Online / Cleanup-image / RestoreHealth

It would take some time to clean up the system using the command line.

3] Now type the following command and hit Enter to run the SFC scan:

sfc / scannow

4] Reboot the system.

Solution 2] Re-register the affected application

1] Go to the application path in File Explorer. It is usually found in C: / Programs, where C: is the system drive.

2] Copy the location. For instance. The location of Notepad would be C: Program Files (x86) NOTEPAD.EXE.

3] Now press Win + R to open the Run window. Type the following and press Enter to re-register the app

/ regserver

For instance. for Notepad, the address would be:


C: Programmi (x86) NOTEPAD.EXE / regserver


4] Reboot the system.

Solution 3] Reinstall Microsoft Windows Script

An incorrectly installed or corrupted Microsoft Windows script could be the reason for the runtime error 429. You can download and install it again from your website. Reboot the system when done.

Solution 4] Windows update

Most importantly, we could try updating Windows, which is just as good as a prevention. Here is the procedure to update Windows.

I hope this helps!
