Know this is a bit dated but I did a bunch of reading about this problem. Turns out that if Outlook is open by me (the default users on the machine) and I tried to create the Outlook Automation object, the error was generated.

Since there was never an answer to this question posted here, I am now replying with a solution.

The answer is to close Outlook and try again. Works!
