Failed to load Excel data

Post by odeflin » Tue Mar 26, 2019 11:41 am


I am using Ranorex 8.2.0 and used to have Office 2016 installed. Now Office 365 64 bit has been installed. When I run my scripts, I get the following message:

Failed to load Excel data. Interface not registered. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040155)

I went through the forum but did not find something relevant.

Help needed. Thanks

Hi Olivier,

Your version is a bit old and no longer supported. Please install most recent 8.3.3 or 9.0 and try to reproduce your problem with either of these versions. It makes no sense to debug such kind of issue with an obsolete and no longer supported version. The most probable reason, why you did not find anything relevant is, that it's most probably a machine-specific issue? So check the latest Ranorex version and eventually, Office 365 installation.
