No MS Excel Application entry in Component services

    Question

  • Hello,

    I made a vb.net application running on a Windows server 2008 R2.

    In this program, I use the Excel Interop 12 to generate an excel file with my turnover of all stores day by day (one sheet for a store).

    When I launch my program manually, I work perfectly. But with the task manager, I get an error "cannot open excel file : already open, not exists...".

    I solved my problem in my windows 10 computer by changing the identity of the MS Excel Application in the component service.

    So, I updated my program on my server and wanted to do the same operation, but Office is not installed on my server, and there is no "Microsoft Excel Application" entry in the DCOM config.
    How can I do to solve my problem ? Is there a way to fin the app id of excel interop ? Wich key should I change ? There is a Microsoft Visual studio or a Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 entry, but I afraid to cause some damages my changing this property.

    Thank you in advance for your help!
