"HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM Component" error Print

  • Error
  • 33


SixBit uses controls from 3rd party vendors. Sometimes those controls have incompatibilities with other programs and are out of our control to fix. This is one of them.


When placing the cursor in a numeric field like the Weight/Dimension fields on the Item window, or when opening the Edit Purchase window, the user gets the following error:

"HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component"

... this may also be accompanied by...

"Value does not fall within the expected range"

Possible Causes:

This is caused by incompatibilities with other software.  We have verified that it is caused when loading the following software:

- drivers for the GE X500 digital camera

- ArcSoft MediaImpression


To solve the problem, restore your version of Windows to a point before you loaded the offending software, or uninstall the offending software.

If you have recently installed software, try uninstalling it to see if it solves the problem.  If you identify any other programs/software that cause this problem, please send the details to so we can include it in this article.
