Xcelsius displays Problem accessing excel: closing message


Hi expert,

I installed Xcelsius 2008 Engage. After that I tried to execute the program. A "Problem accessing excel: closing" message is displayed and after looking similar issues in SDN, and SAP notes... I tried following actions, as suggested::

  • Restart computer 😊

  • To check that no MS Offices processes are being executed

  • No outlook is running

  • I uninstalled some Office 2007 extra packages

  • I installed Xcelsius SP1 Fix packs 1, 2 and 3.

After fix packs installation, the error message is still appearing, but now a new message also appears: "Failed to set localized string".

Does anyone have an idea about what I have to do to solve this annoying problem? I can not use Xcelsius!

There is one thing I have to check: that Excel doesn't have installed add-ins. Does anyone know if SAP Business Explorer tools, in special Excel Analyzer, can be considered as an Excel add-in? can this SAP product interfere in Xcelsius excecution, causing the message I get?

Thank you very much!
