Hi Blair. . .Hi: I have been working with Microsoft Office 2007 and Vista for the past few months now. However, I needed to install the solver add-in for Excel 2007 and I have been getting the error 1342 that says folder path "Program Files" contains an invalid character. I am unable to uninstal Excel to correct the problem and feel like a reformatting may be the only solution.
I have both 2003 and 2007 versions of the office suite. Could you please help me instal the solver add-in (I need it to do an optimization assignment thats due wednesday :S)
Welcome to the Tech Support Forum - Vista Support!
For my clarification, please:
Please tell me about the "solver add-in for Excel 2007 ". I know of many updates for Excel 2007, but am not familiar with this one.
Also, if you are in fact running Office 2003 and Office 2007 concurrently, I would advise that you un-install Office 2003 immediately. Test all aspects of Office 2007. As you may know, Office 2007 functions 100% with the legacy-type Office 2003 - both read/write.
Then I will be glad to do all in my power to rectify this for you in time for you to finish your assignment.
Regards. . .
EDIT: Blair - just to make sure - is is error 1342 - or 1324?
