Project 2010 keeps asking for Excel 2003 or later when trying produce visual reports. RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I try to produce a visual report on project 2010, I am asked to have Excel 2003 or later installed on my computer.  I have office 2013 installed, and have looked for the Excel.exe file to move it but i was unable to find it. Any help much appreciated.

  • Hello,

    What was installed first? Office 2013 or Project 2010? If Office 2013 was installed first, it might be worth trying a repair install for Project 2010.

  • In addition to Paul's excellent advice, try this:

    • Go into C:/Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office15 and copy the Excel.exe file
    • Paste into C:/Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office14

    Hope this helps,
