Sage failed to connect to Excel

I have recently installed Microsoft Office 2010 on a new machine, and subsequently installed Sage Accounts 50 2012. I am unable to export from Sage to Excel, and get the message "Failed to connect to Excel". I have noted the previous answer to a similar query, but I don't think in my case reinstalling Sage would help, as it was installed after Excel.

I can see the addin in Excel, and I can get a logon prompt to Sage from within Excel. If I log on, I then can't run Sage itself as it says the logon is already in use.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

What version of Microsoft Office 2010?

The 64 bit version is incompatible, the 32 bit is fine.

It was 64-bit - but we were told by Sage support it should be compatible. If we are going to have to install 32-bit, I would like to be certain that's the problem - have you come across this before, and it definitely is incompatible?

Definitely incompatible with 64 bit.

I have seen some incorrect misinformation floating around Sage say it is compatible, but real life has made it very clear that it is not.
