Starting Excel 2007 and Windows 7

Hello

Since i installed Win 7 , I need to validate the opening of Excel each time.

Also, An independant software need to open Excel, but the command does not work with my system

A test as been created and stil does not work

var result = -1;
try
{
var excel_servername = "Excel.Application";
var excel = new ActiveXObject(excel_servername);
}
catch(e) {
print(e);
}

Any Idea how I could resolve that?

Hello Irene

No it is not a validation problem

A software, Multicharts, need to start and send a file to Excel. To do so, it use the command line provided.

It normaly work with all system, exept for mine. It could be related to a security check
