HomeTroubleshooting@RISK for Excel: Simulation"Method '~' of object '~' failed" (in Simulation)

4.42. "Method '~' of object '~' failed" (in Simulation)

Applies to: @RISK 5.x–7.x

During a simulation, I get a crash with the message

Method '~' of object '~' failed

What is wrong, and how do I fix it?

If this happens with a large model but not with our examples, you may not have enough memory to run your simulation. Try running it in 64-bit Excel, and see if it works. You can also try the techniques in Memory Used by @RISK Simulations to determine about how much memory the model requires.

This can also be caused by inappropriate COM type library registrations. See Removing Outdated References to Office from the System Registry for instructions on removing the references.
