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.

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.

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.
