Default Problem creating Outlook 2003 object with Symantec

One of the applications we use creates an outlook object and sends an email on via Outlook (Outlook 2003). This application fails when Symantec Internet Security Suite is REMOVED.

The Error Message reads: “Automation Error – Requested Module not found in Tech.frmMain.line 164 “. Line 164 is the line in the VB program where we try to create an Outlook object.

Please note that this problem does not exist when the Symantec Internet Security Suite is installed but occurs only when the Symantec Internet Security Suite is removed.

Also note that: The reason we remove Symantec Internet Security Suite is because we use Symantec Antivirus Corporate version 8.6. Also, the application gives the same error message even when Symantec Antivirus Corporate version 8.6 is installed.

Greatly appreciate any solution to this problem...

I am going to move this to a more appropriate forum. Please post in the proper forum in the future. (I will assume the app is in .NET when picking a new forum)

It has been my experience that Symantec products don't seem to work well together. We recently upgraded from symantec's 7.5 antivirus client to 9.

After the upgrade, we had to go into outlook and uncheck one of the Add-Ins to stop an error message that kept popping up.

Under the Tools menu in outlook, click on options.

Click on Advanced Options.

Click on Add-In Manager.

It is possible that one of the Add-Ins is causing the problem, particularly if it is still there after the product has been removed, which was the case with us.

Note that the instructions may be a little off depending on your version of outlook.

Hope this helps.
