Hi there,


Using ASP.NET and C#.
I'm having problems running the following line of code on my local machine

Excel app = new Excel.Application();

It's returning the following error:

The server process could not be started because the configured identity is incorrect. Check the username and password.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: The server process could not be started because the configured identity is incorrect. Check the username and password

I presume it's using the ASPNET account ?   I've tried to give it permissions to the com object but still no joy.

Any ideas?

For default the ASP.NET user hasn't the right for execute application (it's managed from Framework .NET).
You can see this link for more details of the .NET security
