I am trying to export the results of a query with:

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel12, "qryDistinctEmailAddresses", "C:\EmailAddressExport", True

but am getting a runtime error (see attachment)

Also, instead of exporting the Excel file to the user's C drive I want it to go to the user's desktop.

You only have the path. A filename is needed too, like:

"C:\EmailAddressExport\MyExport.xlsx"

Seems like you don't have the correct version of Excel.
Try to create an older *.xls file with:

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel8, "qryDistinctEmailAddresses", "C:\EmailExport\EmailAddresses.xls"

if you are using A2003, use this

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, 8, "qryDistinctEmailAddresses", environ("userprofile") & "\Desktop\EmailAddresses.xls", True

if you are using A2007 or greater use this

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, 10, "qryDistinctEmailAddresses", environ("userprofile") & "\Desktop\EmailAddresses.xlsx", True
