Customization Assembly Not Found - The Sequel

Dec 2, 2009 at 2:15 PM

On a previous post I reported an issue that the Customization Assembly could not be found.  At that time, creating a trusted location resolved the problem.

http://nodexl.codeplex.com/Thread/View.aspx?ThreadId=72791

However, I am once again experiencing the same problem when trying to open previously created workbooks.  The folder (and subfolders) where these workbooks are saved are in my trusted locations. 

The details of the error message is provided below.   Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as my only solution is to copy my previous work into a new workbook.

Customization could not be loaded because the application domain could not be created.

Hi,

I'm battling this exact problem - did you ever find a solution/workaround?

I have tried installing Office2007 PIA's - didn't work.

This might also shed some light on the issue:

I have not tried shimming the Coms and registering them on clients since that is not an option.

gummih:

Do you have other add-ins installed in Excel?  (It's at Excel Round Button, Excel Options, Add-Ins.)  If so, does temporarily disabling them fix the problem in NodeXL?
