HomeTroubleshootingAll Products: Startup"Object disposed."

2.66. "Object disposed."

Applies to: @RISK 6.x/7.x (possibly other products also)

When I launch @RISK. I get the message

Object disposed.

How do I fix that?

We see this very infrequently, but for the cases we've seen recently, the fix is simple: Just restart Windows. This should be a full restart of Windows, not just logging off and on again.

If you have RISKOptimizer in Excel's list of active ad-ins (File » Options » Add-ins), click the Go button at the bottom of the list and remove the check mark for RISKOptimizer. RISKOptimizer loads automatically when you load @RISK, but it must not be loaded directly as an Excel add-in.

We've also seen this "Object disposed" message associated with permissions problems. If you installed @RISK by just double-clicking the installer, you might want to retry, right-clicking the installer and selecting Run as Administrator. During the install, you'll probably see a selection Modify/Repair/Remove; select Repair.

If these suggestions don't help, please contact Palisade Technical Support with your serial number and we will try to assist you.
