Runtime Error 380 is a big problem for Windows, which is caused by the way win which your PC will not be able to access the files and settings that a program requires to run its “MaskEdit” property. This problem is more with the development aspect of your PC, and is continually leading your system to run much slower and with a lot of problems. We’ve found that one of the biggest causes of errors will be down to the way in which your computer will not be able to process the various settings and options required to run a particular piece of software, and therefore has to be resolved in the most effective way.
The causes of the Runtime 380 error include:
- The Visible property of the Mask Edit control is set to False at design-time.
- A later version of MSMASK32.OCX is installed. The error occurs with MSMASK32.OCX version 5.00.3714, which ships with Microsoft Visual Basic 5.0.
The way to resolve this problem is actually very simple. The first step is to ensure that your computer is able to process the various options that the software needs to run. This can be done in the best way by either re-installing the Visual Basic runtime files, or by just settings the “Visible” property to “True” with the MaskEdit property of the program. I would advise you perform the following steps:
- Click Start > Control Panel > Add / Remove Programs
- Locate Visual Basic
- Remove This Software
- Restart Your PC
- Install the latest version of Visual Basic from the Microsoft website
After doing this, it’s recommended that you use a registry cleaner to scan through your system and fix the various problems that your computer will have. A registry cleaner is a piece of software that’s been created to repair any of the problems that your system will have with its registry database, which is a set of files and options that your PC will use to help make Windows run as smoothly as possible. Although the registry is continually being used to help make sure that Windows is able to run smoothly, it’s often leading to a large number of problems, which need to be fixed by using a registry repair program to scan through your system.
We recommend using a tool called “Frontline Registry Cleaner” to fix this problem. You can download this tool from the Internet, install it and then let it fix the various problems that your system will have.
