Assuming u2fxls.dll exists in that Crystal folder, copy all those DLLs to c:\Windows\System32 instead.

Search your entire C: drive and any other folders in your PATH for that DLL, you might have some duplicate versions interfering.

I found it. Crxf_xls.dll was the culprit.
It was disabling the functionality of U2fxls.dll. I deleted it from the client pc and voila !!! the excel options are now available in the export list.

You must have Crystal 8 or before.  Do you have any applications that use a later version of Crystal?  If so you may have deleted the capability to export to Excel from those applications.
