Can't run Visual report in MSP 2013 - "This operation requires that you have Excel 2003 or later installed on your computer." RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are running MSP 2013 and would like to use the Visual reports.
    We received the message
    "This operation requires that you have Excel 2003 or later installed on your computer."
    We have Office 365 (Excel 2016) installed.
    As a workaround we Excel.exe in the same folder as winproj.exe .

    Now we received the message
    "An unknown error has occurred."
    "An error occurred and the requested action could not be completed at this time".

    Do you any other Excel files to copy to make the report working?

    I know installing MSP 2016 can help, but this particular user can't install MSP 2016.

    Thank you in advance for any help.
    Pascal Jean

  • Posting this for anyone else that that experiences this issue.  I used the the link below resolved to resolve it  Essentially it comes down to a compatibility issue between Click-To-Run and MSI versions
