Excel Addon - Jet Report - is not visible/working when opened through Uipath


I have searced both google and in the available packages to find a solution, but I can’t find the solution.

When I open an excel spreadsheet in Ui App scope, the addon Jet is not available, if I open excel first and the open the file I can use Jet.

How can have Jet available in Uipath?

Hello @Michaeljep,
When you are starting applications using a Studio it’s working like in kind of a sandbox. You can try a walkaround. Open your registry and navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins. Check if in Addins key there is node with your Jet addon. If yes, then copy the whole key with your addon to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins and also to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins.
And let’s see if it works.

Sorry for the late reply, but that wasn’t a solution to the problem, any other ideas?

Iv’e also tried opening the file directly from win + r (filepath), but that is the same problem.

Please check the newest version of Studio and packages if your problem is still.

Pablito updating to the latest Excel exstension did the trick, so now it’s possible to open the file via win+r and i’m able to update the file:-)
