Problem opening Excel: Cannot create an instance of Excel

This errors will occur when Excel is not installed, or more likely, the wrong version of Excel is installed.

According to Microsoft, there are two versions of Excel 2010; “Click to Run” and “Regular”. The “Click to Run” version does not install the necessary registry entries used by GDXXRW and thus GDXXRW will fail. The following article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/982431 explains how to un-install the “Click to Run” version and install the “Regular” version.
