Troubles with Excel2Xps and Excel2Pdf on MOSS 2007

Oct 28, 2009 at 4:40 PM



We have installed Excel2Xps and Excel2Pdf on  MOSS 2007 with a 2003 Server R2 x64, but we met some issues:

The conversion stopped with the following message in an Email processing by the server:

"The recovery of the COM class factory for component with CLSID (00024500-0000-0000-C000-000000000046) failed due to the following error: 8000401A” (French translation)

We have the same result with Excel 2003 and 2007 version.

The conversion package included in MOSS 2007( Docx to HTML) is working properly also the Doc2XPS and Doc2Pdf from codeplex is working too.

Launcher services and load balancer services are configured properly with the HVU_”SERVEURNAME” user, created by the MOSS services.

We suppose that the problem is coming from the DCOM Excel Application component, but we don’t find the correct configuration and we also identify that the CLSID  “00024500-0000-0000-C000-000000000046” don’t exist in the registry and is replaced by the CLSID (00020812-0000-0000-C000-000000000046)

Thanks for your help.

And sorry for our poor English.

Excel conversions require a PCL driver be installed, any PCL driver. 

Here is a link explaining the reasons why.
