Something's gone wrong error: "System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException"

This error can occur if AccountRight can't communicate with a Microsoft Office program, such as Outlook, Word or Excel. If the error happens when sending an email, and AccountRight is set up to email through Microsoft Outlook, consider sending emails directly from AccountRight. This eliminates the need to rely on Microsoft Outlook.

If the error persists, repair the Microsoft Office program AccountRight is trying to communicate with. For example, if the error occurs when sending a report to Excel, repair Microsoft Excel. See this Microsoft support article for help with this.
