Hi there...

I have tried to install your software on a Windows 7 German Ultimate and with MS Office 2010 German and MS Office 2007 German and English also installed. However you installer tells me that Excel 2007/2010 is not installed and therefore I can not complete the setup of your software. Can you please help and tell me what I can do for getting your software work?

Thanks and Regards

MBF has only been tested with English OS and office Installations and for that it looks in the registry under the following key:

[Run: Type regedit]

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Application\CurVer to determine the Excel installation. 

It will help us indetify the issue if you could post the registry path to your office environment from the registry for the path listed above.

thx, Vivek

Hi VivekX...

thanks for your support. In my registry installation I have following things...

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Application\CurVer -> Standard (=Default in German) = Excel.Application.11

I manually changed the value in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Application\CurVer to Excel.Application.12 and tried to install your software again and yes it works :-)

Please note that I had installed my Excel versions in the order 2003, 2007 and then 2010. So I think the MS installer setted the registry value to 11 when installing 2003 and the other installers did not change it. I have also some other entries in the registry, which perhaps may be from interest.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Application\CLSID -> Default = {00024500-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Application.11\CLSID -> Default = {00024500-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Application.12\CLSID -> Default = {00024500-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Application.14\CLSID -> Default = {00024500-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}

Thanks again and regards.
