Welcome to the UiPath Community!

The problem you’re facing seems to stem from MS Office installation issue(s).
Although I can’t provide an absolute fix to this problem, I think you can follow these steps to try and fix the issue:

I hope this helps.

Do you have any experience of this?

Of course i did that.
Still I get that same error message which you pointed to at the start.

I have manually installed the Excel Add-in now.
I have 2 versions of UIpath.


The installer file in App-21.2.0-beta0044 “Uipath.Integration.ExcelAddIn” wouldn’t install.
When I tried the same file in app-20.10.6 it worked, install complete.

The Excel Add-in under Tools still don’t look like it’s installed.
When I try to install it again it says:


So I take this as a good sign.
Unfortunately excel add-in still don’t work.

Could it possibly have something to do with the version I’m operating from?

The excel add-in is installed manually from 20.10.6

Best wishes
