Microsoft Excel 2003 Component missing in DCOM Configuration

Hi,

We have a server with Windows 2008 Standard R2 64 BIT as an OS. Now we have installed office 2003 (Excel only) SP1 on the same. We are not able to find the Microsoft Excel Component in the DCOM configuration.

Any idea?

Thanks
Chetan

Look for these
Microsoft.Office.Interop
Microsoft.Office.Core

Interop contains the Excel.Application, Excel.Workbook, etc. and core contains some of the constants and whatnot.

Hi,

I have tried installing the same in Office SP1 & again after upgrading SP to 3, but the installation is not starting.

The Interop msi I am using is O2003PIA.

Thanks
Chetan

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

Reinstall Excel, hit Custom install and see if the interops are in the Shared features somewhere.

Hi,

I have installed office 2003 in custom mode & checked all components in Excel & all other common/shared tools.

Thanks

Where are you trying to use them? VB.NET? .vbs files?

Hi,

The problem is solved now. The things which actually worked are:

1) Installation of SP3.
2) Running the application under an application pool.
3) & finally running the scheduler under an administrative A/c.

Thanks
