I have this issue  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2570623   and I fix it with the manual solution (I attach a copy in the end of the email)

The question is that the solution only work for the current user, if any other user logon in this machine, I need to do again the the fix for each user.


"You can use the EnableOnLoad registry entry to configure how you want Excel to handle opening workbooks for the OFV. By default, the EnableOnLoad entry is not present in the Windows registry. To add the EnableOnLoad entry to the Windows registry, follow these steps:
1.Exit Excel.
2.Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
3.Locate and then click to select the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\
4.After you select the key that is specified in step 3, point to New on the Edit menu, and then click Key.
5.Type Excel, and then press ENTER.
6.Select Excel, point to New on the Edit menu, and then click Key.
7.Type Security, and then press ENTER.
8.Select Security, point to New on the Edit menu, and then click Key.
9.Type FileValidation, and then press ENTER.
10.Select FileValidation, point to New on the Edit menu, and then click DWORD Value.
11.Type EnableOnLoad, and then press ENTER.
Note: The default value is 0 which disables the validation.
12.On the File menu, click Exit to quit Registry Editor."

Save above Code as file.Vbs and run it....
this will create entry for all the users profile under the HKEY_USERS.
so when the user login he should get the key already.

took some time to think for best solution... :)
