Error 1001. Retrieving the com class factory for component... with Excel Setup program RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have built an Excel Workbook program using Visual Studios 2008.  I have a setup program which installs on the development machine.  When I tried to install it on a new machine I got the following error msg during the installation:

     

    Error 1001. Retrieving the com class factory for component with CLSID {A87AB....} failed due to the following error: 80040154

    I'm guessing I am missing a DLL but don't really know where to start looking.  Any help much appreciated.
