Excel Cluster Connector for Microsoft HPC Pack 2012 R2 load error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I tried to load the 'Excel Cluster Connector for Microsoft HPC Pack 2012 R2' but get an error 'A runtime error occured during the loading of the COM Add-in'.

    My environment:

    • Windows 2012 R12 Std edition
    • HPC Pack 2012 R2
    • Excel 2010 - 64 bits

    I have generated a Fusion file (see below). Has someone an idea what went wrong? I already tried to copy 'Microsoft.Hpc.Excel.XllConnector.DLL' to 'C:/Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office14' but that did not help.

    Thanks.

    Theo.

  • Please try to add a new file named EXCEL.EXE.config under C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14

    File content:

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <configuration>
      <startup useLegacyV2RuntimeActivationPolicy="true">
        <supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.0"/>
      </startup>
    </configuration>
