Failed to load receiver assembly "Microsoft.Office.Excel.Server, Version=,...for feature "ExcelServerSite" (ID: 3cb475e7-4e87-45eb-a1f3-db96ad7cf313) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have new SP2010 server. I have created couple of web applications and when I try to create Site Collection under them, I get very wierd error:
    "Failed to load receiver assembly "Microsoft.Office.Excel.Server, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" for feature "ExcelServerSite" (ID: 3cb475e7-4e87-45eb-a1f3-db96ad7cf313).:....."

    I checked in the asembly and I do have above mentioned asembly but version is Version=, which I think is correcct since it is SP2010 environment and not MOSS 2007.

    If my understanding is correct, then may I ask "Why SharePoint 2010 site creation is looking for Version=, or Where would I have  configured it to look for this version " ?

    Please Note, if i create a Site Collection with Blank Site as Template then it gets created without any issues and  link to the site works well.

    Pls HeLp!!!! :)

  • I anaylysed and understood what the issue is :)....

    In above description one point i missed out mentioning is; we got this error, after we successfully did Upgrade of MOSS 2007 Content Database, using Database Attach method. So after upgrade we have not yet finished Visual Upgrade, i.e still using MOSS 2007 Look and feel. When we try to create any new site collection on this WebApp (whose content DB is upgraded) we are getting above error.

    So, answer for above problem is ; since we have still kept MOSS 2007 look and feel, that means we are still using old Master page. Hence we are not able to create New Sub sites.

    (Not my answer though, some expert mentioned this :) ). This helped me beleive why I am not able to crate any sub site in the web application whose Content DB is already upgraded, but......

    Sub site creation on new web application also is failing in this environment. Still this question has to be answered.

    Any views pls...?
