Excel - File Conversion in Process, Converter Failed To Save File



Thanks in advance for any assistance.

On some machines, when a user opens an Excel file from SharePoint and
checks out for edit and -does not- use the local drafts folder, you
see a dialog with "File Conversion In Progress", then "Converter
Failed To Save File" message, but the file is checked out to the user
and will not open in the Excel.

A kind-of workaround, is to use local drafts for the Check Out, but if
the user tries to launch the file via the link in SharePoint, the
"Converter Failed To Save File" message is displayed.

Both machines have SP1 and the latest office hotfixes

Any ideas on what is causing this? An hour of searching yielded
nothing of use.
