SharePoint 2010 beta error: Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {BDEADF26-C265-11D0-BCED-00A0C90AB50F} failed due to the following error: 800703fa

I’ve installed SharePoint 2010 with PowerPivot for some time now but since one week i have to do an IISRESET everymorning because i have error message on my SharePoint server:

Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {BDEADF26-C265-11D0-BCED-00A0C90AB50F} failed due to the following error: 800703fa.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {BDEADF26-C265-11D0-BCED-00A0C90AB50F} failed due to the following error: 800703fa.

Thanks to the internet i found the a workaround:

– Doing an IISReset solves it but it could appear again

– Go to IIS Manager, select the Application Pool for your web application and click Advanced settings, change the value for “Load User Profile” to “true”

Thanks to Bassem Georgi (MSFT)

  • I’ve had the same issue but the Load User Profile option was not available in my advanced settings window. The solution that worked for me was to use 1 command to update this property and afterwards the error never reoccured.

    I’ve posted a detailed step by step guide on my blog.

    Good luck!

  • I get this specific error. The application pool for my web application is already set to “True”. Should I set the value to “True” for also my application pool for the PowerPivot-Service?

      Hi Erik, are you using SharePoint 2010 beta? I don’t think most of this content is still available.
