Ok so I wanna play with some spreadsheets. Lets see. Lets copypaste from
Creates OLE object to Excel
excel = WIN32OLE.new(“excel.application”)
#and so on…
myExcelApp.rb:9:in initialize': unknown OLE server:Excel.Application’
HRESULT error code:0x800401f3
Invalid class string from myExcelApp.rb:9:in `new’
Ie. no joy. Something wrong with the Win32Ole library?
Can you actually open a ‘genuine’ xls file on your machine to see if
ms-excel/office is working properly? I’ve had problems before where
win32ole wouldn’t work b/c the ms-office software license had not yet
been activated (don’t remember what the specific error was, tho).
