1. Do an Office Repair (or if desired uninstall and reinstall).
2. Make a new, test, Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new Windows Account and test Excel in the new Windows Account.

If I understand correctly what you are saying is step
1 is if a program is cropped
2 to see if the profile is the issue

Did I get it right, if not please correct me.

There can not be more than one user opening the same Excel file at the same time, in WRITE mode. You can duplicate the same file for more copies, to have the WRITE mode, at the same time.

We know. The issue is the file opening the second time in Read mode.

I think its not the profile as each user has a separate file

[its a environment I've never seen before window 7 ultimate all user connect in with a RDC, but is not a window machine].

I did a window repair but needed a restart to complete need to wait for all user to leave. [office is installed I'm not sure how it works in such type of environment but I assume office is installed only one the admin user as in a server environment that is used with RDC so repairing office at the admin user should work for all if it will do the job].

I notices that outlook indexing does not work. Already restarted window indexing service did not solve.
