Never rush me through anything, especially matters of the heart. Even though I might be 100% on board in my heart, my brain orders me to take it slowly, and my brain is no fool. It’s not an insult. It’s damage control. ~ETS #time

Runtime error 480 is shown when you use the "DrillDown Viewer" on your system, and is caused by a lack of resources on your PC (including physical hard-drive memory, video memory & RAM). If you want to fix the 480 error, you need to be able to use the tools and techniques that are going to repair the error for good. This tutorial is going to show you exactly how to cure the Runtime 480 error in the fastest & most reliable way.

This error will often appear like this:

  • "Runtime error 480 can not create auto redraw image"

The error you're seeing is basically caused by your computer's inability to perform the "auto-redraw" command, which is most likely caused by the DrillDown Viewer. If you're seeing this error, it suggests that your computer either does not have enough video memory, RAM or hard-drive memory to ensure that it can perform all the tasks you want. In order to repair the error, you need to be able to free up some resources on your system, which can be done with the steps outlined below:

The first step to fixing this error is to close down any other programs you have open on your PC. To do this, press CTRL + ALT + DEL to open up the "task manager". This is a program built into the Windows system by Microsoft to help you control the various programs / processes that are continuously running on your system. You can load up the task manager, and it will show you all the programs that your PC is running, as well as the memory they are taking up. You should stop the different processes that are taking up the most memory - to ensure that your system can focus all its resources onto the program you have open.

The second step is to use a "registry cleaner" program to remove any of the damaged settings that could be on your computer and causing the error to show. A registry cleaner is a popular type of program which basically cleans out any of the errors from the "registry" of your system. This is a huge database which stores vital files and settings for your PC - and is where the likes of your desktop wallpaper, latest emails and even your stored passwords are kept. One of the most common causes of the 480 Runtime error is down to the fact that the registry could be continuously saving a lot of its files in the wrong way - leading your system to take longer to run, slowing it down. This is a major problem, which is actually quite easy to fix.
