Question for MVP - install Excel 2003 on MS Server 2003


W

WCM

We are running Microsoft Server 2003 on one of our servers and we need to
install Excel 2003 on same server. After install, when we open Excel, we get
a warning stating, 'Cannot Use Object Linking and Embedding', and then
another warning stating, 'An Error Occurred in initializing the VBA
Libraries(14)'.

Do you know how we can fix this? Is it somehow a security issue? We have
double-checked that we have downloaded the right VBA libraries.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I just recently encounted this error on a machine with Excel 2003 sp2
and another machine with Excel XP sp3.
For Excel 2003 sp2, i installed windows updates for Office/Excel and
upgraded to sp3. That fix it.
