I am having this same issue. I have an SAP reporting add in (Excel Add-in) that shows up correctly when I manually open any Excel workbook. This is found in an excel toolbar. Other standard add-ins such as PowerPivot or Power Query are also not showing up. I’m using Excel 2010
When the workbook is opened by UiPath, that add-in isn’t showing up in the toolbar. I went to Excel–>Options–>Add-Ins–>Manage Excel Add-ins and the Add-in is showing up in the list as available and checked. If I manually uncheck, then recheck that add-in, then it shows up and works correctly. I’d much prefer the robot to not have to uncheck/recheck that add-in box every time a program is run. This tool is one of my company’s primary reporting tools as it is integrated with the general ledger (SAP).
I see there are a couple other unsolved forum posts regarding Excel add-ins and UiPath. Has anyone been able to solve them? If not, will this be addressed at some point in the future?
EDIT: I forgot to add that opening Excel using Start Process allows the add-ins to load and show-up properly. However, I’d prefer to utilize some of the features that require to it to be inside of an Excel scope activity, so this workaround isn’t ideal.
