Excel locks when trying to close AO/Excel session

Hi everyone,

I am new to SCN. :-)

I am using the Analysis for Microsoft Excel 1.4 SP08. Every time I close Excel when AO is activated, Excel locks up and has to restart:

I am using MS Excel Professional Plus 2010 (32 bit) on a Windows 7 (64 bit) OS. This problem also occurs when using previous service packs.

I hope someone has an answer for this! It is very frustrating for myself and our users.

Thank you!

    Since Excel is 32 bit, are you using Analysis Office 32 bit?  Can you confirm/check this?

      Hi Dustin,

      Can you try create a shortcut on your desktop with the following. Just past the entire string in the locations and then select next and finish.

      "C:\Program Files\SAP BusinessObjects\Analysis\BiSharedAddinLauncher.exe" /appXLS /AOOnly

      The path will be different if you are running a windows 64bit OS with Office 32bit in that case it will look as follows;

      "C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Analysis\BiSharedAddinLauncher.exe" /appXLS /AOOnly
