Error: An exception occurred while creating a new gift batch: 'Class does not support Automation or does not support expected interface' when importing gifts to a Gift Batch via ImportOmatic

When importing gifts to a Gift Batch in The Raiser's Edge via ImportOmatic, users may receive the error "An exception occurred while creating a new gift batch: 'Class does not support Automation or does not support expected interface.'"  This may occur after upgrading to The Raiser's Edge version 7.94.
Download and install the latest patch, which contains all fixes from previous patches. If you are running an older version, download and install the latest version and then the patch. 

Alternative Solution:
If your business processes allow, import the gifts directly to the Constituent record by bypassing RE:Batch.  To disable this option:
  1. Open the Gifts section within the IOM profile.
  2. Uncheck the option to import gifts via RE:Batch.
