Not able to excel data connector after installing excel 2016

Post by vivek.guvva » Fri Apr 08, 2016 3:36 am

Hi,

I have installed excel 2016 in my laptop and after that I am not able to use excel data connector functionality of Ranorex. When i try to use, excel data connector, I am getting the below error.

"An error occurred while loading data connector. Unable to cast COM object of type Excel.ApplicationClass to interface type Excel._Aplication. This operation failed because the QueryInterface call on the COM component for the interface with IID '{000208D5-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}' failed due to the following error: Interface not registered (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040155)"

Any help in resolving this issue is appreciated.

Thanks
Vivek

Hi,

This problem is most probably caused by corrupted registry after incorrect uninstallation of previous version of office. Check this post:
