RETIRED Business Plan Pro: Run-time Error -2147417848 (80010108) Follow

When trying to view a sample plan within the Sample Plan Browser, you may encounter the error:

Run-time error '-2147417848 (80010108)':

Automation Error object invoked has disconnected from its clients.

  5. Select Adobe Reader.
  6. Click the Remove (or Change/Remove) button.
  7. Then, reinstall the Adobe Reader software on your computer.
  8. This should reinstall the Adobe Reader Plug-in on your computer so that it will correctly display sample plan previews.
