error: Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is..... when i try to create documents

I’m writing for ask help, because I have a problem and we can’t work in the right way.

 

In my company we use ACT! by Sage Premium 2008 (10.0) (ST Edition) Version 10.0.2.191.

We used Office 2007 Baisc for generate the quote and for all the other documents.

From September to yesterday I worked quite well, we created all the documents that we need without problems.

Yesterday I had to remove Office 2007 basic and re-installe Office 2007 standard for licenses change.

I did it with all the recommendations but now we have a problem.

 

When I try to generate a quote I have this error: Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt.

And sometimes this one: External component has thrown an exception.

Well, I found this article Answer ID 24256, and I followed all the steps indicated but I didn’t resolve the problem.

Office diagnostic, regsvr32 for redemption.dll, recreate the normal.dotm file, do the sfc /scannow as administrator in the cmd.exe, all this steps doesn't works.

What I have to do now for fix it?

 

Best regards.

Hello Emmanuele,
If you uninstalled and reinstalled Office, that may have broken the integration with ACT!. Try uninstalling and reinstalling ACT! to re-establish the integration.

Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.

In the past that error message has been an indication that the system was infected with spyware.  I would go to eset.com and f-secure.com and run their online scanners.  There are other causes of that error but that's a pretty easy one to check for.

Have you installed all of the latest updates for Windows and Office?

Yes all the updates.

And the really strange thing is this one:

on one PC with ACT and office 2007 Standard works.

on others three PCs with ACt and office 2007 standard doesn't work.

Re: error: Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is..... when i try to create documents

Most of the time when I see this error message it is because a program can't write to the Windows Registry.  If you have a program that has locked the registry while it's making an update and it doesn't release it like spyware or possibly some sort of program that protects you from spyware that might cause this issue.  There are other reasons that it happens but that is the most frequent.  As you're probably aware this can be a difficult problem to resolve.

I tried to check the differences between the working PC and several other PCs where the creation of the documents doesn't work.

I noticed that in the one that works there are many update, then i installed the updates in the other PCs but the problem is still the same.

It seems that there's no way out.
