COM Add-in error - XL Reporter - MS Excel 2003



I would like to revisit the COM Add-in Error when using XL Reporter with MS Excel 2003.

The work around I found is that run the SAP B1 client as the network admin. If I attempt to run as the user who is logged into the PC, I receive either an Excel security error or "Required COM Add-in for XL Reporter has not been loaded and prohibits MS Excel from Running."

I read that the user must have "admin" access to the local PC and the user does have administrator access to the local PC. Nothing seems to work, except running B1 client as THE network admin.

This creates a security risk, since I have to share the administrator password.

Any suggestions, ideas, or comments?
