Technically I don't know. On my private notebook, my add-in works well.
But I have a local account, and in the company, I have a domain user account, and EA is installed from
active directory group.

I thought that is maybe a problem? So I reinstalled my EA from local HDD and hoped that replace some references?
No idea how it makes it words :/

Hi Guys,

I have word 2016 add-in (VB2017) and it works on a local account (win10pro), but on the user with domain it shows error:

The exception thrown: 'System. Exception' in Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll
Cannot create an ActiveX component.

Imports EA

Module Module1
    Sub Main()
            Dim vRep As EA.Repository
            Dim vApp As EA.App = GetObject(, "EA.App")
            vRep = vApp.Repository
        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try
    End Sub

So, it is a domain problem, or something different?

Thanx 4 all advice.


Dear Greet,

Yes, you did! My appology, I was blind :)
Once again thank you too.


For .NET projects you should be referencing Interop.EA.dll, not EA.tlb.

Thanx 4 Sprax support from Aaron Bell.

Have you tried first removing it and then reselecting it? = Yes.
In a C# project  = Same :/

I've only used VBA (from within Word or Excel) and C# recently... Yes I know, I learn from your VBA code, and the other posts here,
and from EA books...

And I have working Add-In based on Visual Studio 2018 [VB] + EA 12.1.1230, and it works fine but 13.5 and also BEAT 14 not working :/

anyway, thank U 4 your time

Yes, I did. Without any effect. [My project >> Open >> Compile >> Target CPU:x86] if is it that?

Under References is: <The system can not find the reference specified>
It's a little confusing because I found EA.tlb and browse it. And I seeing it in Solution Explorer
with little yellow examination symbol.

Hi Greet,

here are warnings:

Warning   #1
Error encountered while loading the project. Some project features, such as full solution analysis
for the failed project and projects that depend on it, have been disabled.   
WordAddIn_EA13      1   Active

Warning   #2   
The referenced component 'EA' could not be found.   

Warning   #3   
Cannot find wrapper assembly for type library "EA".
Verify that (1) the COM component is registered correctly and (2) your target platform is the same as the bitness of the COM component.
For example, if the COM component is 32-bit, your target platform must not be 64-bit.   

I deregistered /registered EA.EXE

Thanx a lot 4 help :)


Hi Guys!

I am trying do the same thing as  "Access Sparx Ea from Visual Basic" by Robert Glover Jr but with EA 13.5.
I made it with EA 12.1.1230, but with 13.5 I don't.!OEkAqM6Von7X/sparx13-4-errorvs2017-png

I am trying to create Word 2016 Add-In for importing diagram element and update them. With EA 12.1 it works perfectly :)

Thanx for advice.
