Starting issue with Nodexl

Apr 5, 2012 at 10:41 AM


I just installed Nodexl on my computer. Everything went fine, but every time I open the Nodexl excel template I get these notifications:


"The language DLL 'VBE6INTL.DLL could not be found".

If I press ok I get the next one:

"The customization assembly could not be found or could not be loaded. You can still edit and save the document. Contact your administratore or the author of this document for further assistance".

If I click ok, I go into the program but it's a 'read only' and I don't get the link (in the ribbon) of nodexl betweet 'view' and 'design'.

I'm a complete idiot when it comes to computers (unfortunately I need this for my dissertation), I'm sure I did something wrong...

Can anyone plz help me out!?

Forgetting about NodeXL for a moment, what happens when you try to open plain old Excel via the Windows Start menu?

nothing out of the ordinary just loads as a normal excel document and everything works normal!

I think there is something wrong with your Excel program in general.  I don't know why it appears only when you try to use NodeXL, but I can tell you that many other people who never use NodeXL have also encountered it.  I was unable to find a single definitive cause or solution, but here is a conversation in which many people talk about the problem and how they fixed it:

One cause was having Google Desktop installed.  Do you have that?

Another thing you might try is Windows Start Menu, All Programs, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Office Tools, Microsoft Office Diagnostics.  That's a tool that can find and fix some Office problems.

I'm sorry I can't offer a real answer.

Thanks Tony!

One of the solutions on the link you gave worked!

I uninstalled "Compatibility update for office 2007" and everything works like a charm now!

Oh, that's good news.  Thanks for letting me know what worked; now I have advice in case it happens to someone else.  (Yours was the first case I had heard of with NodeXL.)
