  • Does it fail on all nodes or just some?  What version of Excel are you using - 32-bit or 64-bit?

    Check to see if Excel is activated on all node instances.

  • Hi

    i Run the 64 bit version,

    Excel is installed and Activated.

    I can open excel without any problem on the actual compute nodes but this test keep on failing.

    The head node is acting as a Broker node, and the other tests regarding SOA is a success.

  • Launch excel manually on the node and check the macro settings in excel (try setting TRUE to thse 2 properties - Enable All Macros and Trust access to the VBA project object model).
