Excel locks when trying to close AO/Excel session

Hi everyone,

I am new to SCN. :-)

I am using the Analysis for Microsoft Excel 1.4 SP08. Every time I close Excel when AO is activated, Excel locks up and has to restart:

I am using MS Excel Professional Plus 2010 (32 bit) on a Windows 7 (64 bit) OS. This problem also occurs when using previous service packs.

I hope someone has an answer for this! It is very frustrating for myself and our users.

Thank you!

Hi Dustin,

We had a similar issue Analysis for Office has a switch that will only load
the Analysis Addin you can use this at the end the launcher. /AOOnly

"C:\Program Files\SAP
BusinessObjects\Analysis\BiSharedAddinLauncher.exe" /appXLS /AOOnly

We had an added complication our users did not have write access to the
localmachines section of the windows registry which is where our other addins
had been installed. In our case we need to edit our security policy. But if
your other addins are loaded into the localuser section you will be fine.


If the switch does not work it probably it relates to the registry security I mentioned.
