I was a newbie programmer and I was testing a simple code when I got this error code.  I used Error Goblin to find out the meaning of the code and it just said Invalid Pointer. 

Error Goblin

Look up any Windows error code tofind out what it actually means

0x80000005

Error Code: 0x80000005

Description:Invalid pointer

 

Can anyone from this forum help me on how to resolve this error? 

Thanks for the help.

Hi Smiller,

Actually this is a very generic error code, and until and unless the exact occurrence is provided you can only be guided to the generic symptom.

The generic symptom is: STATUS_BUFFER_OVERFLOW

To check the detail, you should visit the url: http://source.winehq.org/ident?i=STATUS_BUFFER_OVERFLOW

And match the activity where you received the error.

Hello there,

0x80000005, Invalid pointer; this is actually an object linking and embedding error. The error pops up when there is some pointer does not match with the data type that wanted. I think you updated your system before getting this error. There is a way to fix this problem, for that you have to download a tool called fix it.

You can download it from Microsoft official site and also can fix other problems if you system suffer from. Just download it, install it and run the fix it tool. Also there is another tool I can recommend you, try speedy pro. Both the software are free to download and can give a better result.

Thank you,
