When you use the Microsoft Web Browser control to navigate to another document, you may receive one of the following error messages:

This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. If the problem persists, contact the program vendor.

If you click Details, you receive an error message similar to the following

EXCEL caused an invalid page fault in module EXCEL.EXE at 0137:30442942.


WINWORD caused an invalid page fault in module WINWORD.EXE at 0137:3007fabc.

and the Microsoft Office component program quits.


Run-time error '-214767259 (80004005)':
Automation Error


This problem may occur when you are using the Microsoft Web Browser control to navigate to another document of the same type (such as Microsoft Excel workbook to Microsoft Excel workbook.)


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
