problem opening NodeXL template

Sep 22, 2009 at 9:42 AM

Hi,

I just installed the NodeXL template (version 1.0.1.93). The installation went fine but I get two error messages when opening the template (either from the Start Menu or from within Excel):

"System policy prevents loading manifests. For more information, please contact your administrator." followed by "The customization assembly could not be found or could not be loaded. You can still edit and save the document. Contact your administrator or the author of this document for further assistance." The details given by the second error message are copied below. I have Office 2007 SP2 running on Windows XP Tablet PC Edition SP3. What could solve this error? Thanks for your help.

Ruud.

I found surprisingly little about the "System policy prevents loading manifests" error message, except for this post, which suggests rebooting the computer to fix it:

http://community.intuit.com/post/detail/djIkqML4ur3BfzacfAQhOa

Please try that.  If the problem still occurs, please post the details of the FIRST error message and I'll forward the problem to a Microsoft forum to see if anyone there has any ideas.

Thanks,

Hello Tony,

Thanks for your reply. I also didn't find much information about this error. Rebooting didn't help. I cannot post the details of the first error message (there's only an OK button, no Details button) so I guess I am stuck. I asked my system administrator to reproduce the error. I will let you know if he was able to find the cause and come up with a solution.

Thanks again,

Ruud.

Edited Sep 22, 2009 at 5:44 PM

Okay.

By the way, if the error message is correct, it's saying that there is a security restriction on your machine that is preventing Excel from loading a "manifest," which is a file used by the NodeXL template.  If you are working in a corporate environment, one possibility is that your company has restricted what your machine can do in an effort to reduce risks from outside threats.

Error messages are sometimes misleading, though, so I can't say for certain that this is the case.

Hello Tony,

You were right in your last post; I am working in a corporate environment and I have a 'managed' MS Office installation. I have now installed NodeXL on a 'lab PC' that is kept outside the regular domain, and everything is working fine now. Thanks for your answer.

Regards,

Ruud.

Glad to hear it, Ruud.  Thanks for letting us know the outcome, which will help us when others run into the same problem.

I get the same message when trying to use NodeXL.

The system admin has checked it out, and cannot find any policy's that should prevent me from using NodeXL. Anyone any suggestions how to fix this?

 

Thanks!

Jasper:

One way an administrator can "lock down" a computer to prevent it from running programs like NodeXL is described here:

http://www.informit.com/articles/article.aspx?p=691085&seqNum=8

Briefly, a "TrustManager" key can be added to the Windows registry to prevent "ClickOnce" programs from running under certain conditions.  (NodeXL is a ClickOnce program.)

So the first thing to do is to have your administrator (or you, if you know how to use RegEdit.exe) check for an HKLM\Software\Microsoft\.NETFramework\Security\TrustManager key in the registry.  If it's there, tell me what its contents are and I'll tell you if that's the cause of the problem.

-- Tony

Sep 15, 2011 at 1:45 PM

Hi Tony,

 

Thanks for your quick reply.

There is no such key in the registry. Should we place any?

 

Jasper

Sep 15, 2011 at 5:35 PM

No, don't do that.

I don't know what "system policy" is causing this.  I've posted the problem to a Microsoft forum to see if someone else can shed light on this:

http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winformssetup/thread/c11e0dd4-5c69-4220-8dab-ac5c9ccd237b

I'll let you know what I hear back.

There seems to be 2 answers, not sure if they help..

http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winformssetup/thread/c11e0dd4-5c69-4220-8dab-ac5c9ccd237b

and

http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vsto/thread/5792d9e4-5c83-4cb9-8011-39d2cdca77d3

As for the last post, to answer some of the questions (the ones I understand :))

1. Yes have tried it at multiple laptops at the office. The sysadmin also tried his PC, on which he has all rights as well.

3. No such key.

4. there are some keys in that folder: ForceActiveDesktopOn (0), NoActiveDesktop (1), and NoActiveDesktopChanges (1), all of type REG_DWORD

 

Hope with this info you will be able help me run NodeXL again :)

Thanks again for your time!

I didn't find a definitive answer there.

You just said "help me run NodeXL again."  Was it working for you before?  If so, what has changed since then?

If that was just a slip, then let's try an experiment.  Please do the following:

1. Uninstall NodeXL.

2. Add the registry key and values listed under "Enabling the ClickOnce Trust Prompt" at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc176048.aspx.  I tend to think that this is unnecessary, because the default value for "MyComputer" is Enabled, but it's worth a try.  You might want to back up the \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\.NETFramework\Security key before doing this, just in case.  (That's File, Export in Registry Editor.)

3. Install NodeXL again.

4. Try running NodeXL again.

The 'again'  was referring to the laptop from my previous job :)

The experiment did not make it work unfortunately.

To be complete still get these messages;

"System policy prevents loading manifests"

followed by

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

Jasper:

 I'm stumped. Based on the error message, "System policy prevents loading manifests," I had hoped that there was a simple system policy in Windows that could be set (or unset in this case) to control whether ClickOnce manifests could be loaded. Based on the lack of response in the two forums in which I posted the question, that doesn’t appear to be the case.

My best guess –and it’s only a guess— is that something was done when setting up your enterprise computers that block ClickOnce applications as an unexpected side effect. What that is, I don’t know.

So I don’t have an answer for you now (apart from using NodeXL on a non-corporate computer), but I’ll let you know if I discover anything else.

Hi Tony,

Alright, too bad. Thanks for your help anyway!
