Yesterday Cardbox worked fine, today when I try to open a file I get the error message "Internal Error Code 80070002". I have tried closing Cardbox down and re-starting, but the error message keeps appearing. Anyone help please?

PeterD - not trying to hijack your post but...

OK, weird... Same thing here. Used Cardbox fine last night, today no databases can be opened but I get a different error code: 80040154. As with Peter, opening and closing Cardbox or rebooting the machine makes no difference. I cannot access any databases although I can navigate to them from the "Open..." menu option.

I wonder if this could be some sort of update to the machine OS? I am running Windows 7 Professional 64bit here and Cardbox 3.1 build 4406

I have seached the forum but cannot find any help...

Anyone have any ideas?

It looks as if it was some form of corruption in the registry. Ended up uninstalling and reinstalling just the program, which re-wrote the registry settings and now all is back !

I hope the solution for PeterD is as simple!

First try to open a sample database. This for checking if there is something wrong with your client.

Tried opening a sample database, same Error Message, is the answer then to uninstalling and reinstalling? Many thanks for your help with this matter

Cannot harm. Try it.

Have uninstalled and reinstalled and that has fixed the problem for me also. Strange!
Thank you for your help

I am using Avast anti-virus and it quarantined cbox3eng.exe saying it was infected with Win32:evo-gen whenever I tried to open a file - I received the file open error 80040154. I restored the program and ran a virus and anti-malware scan on it and both report it clean. I then tried downloading the latest version to install from scratch and the download was blocked by Avast for the same reason stated above. I have raised a problem report with Avast as I believe this to be a false positive and have submitted the "offending" program for analysis. Not sure if any of you use this AV product but others may also yielding the same result. Just a thought.

I think (hope) Avast will fix this soon. Had earlier such a thing and it was fixed in a week.
For time being: do not allow Avast to place the file in quarantine.

I had an update today from Avast Technical Support to say that the problem has been fixed - it was indeed a false positive report. As of virus definition update 140630-0 all is working fine - both opening a database file and downloading the latest version.
