I'm getting the following unexpected error when i click Export.

Error | Retrieving the COM class Factory for component with CLSID {00024500-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} failed due to the following error: 80040154 Class not registered (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040154 (REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG)), Error occured while saving excel File. Please contact your System Administrator. | [ OK ]

Is this an already known issue with a known fix?

it appears this arises from not having excel installed as I added excel 2010 to the system in question and the error went away.

q1 - does this utility require excel x86 or should it work fine with excel x64 installed?

q2 - does this utility require excel 2010 or should it work fine with excel 2013 customer preview installed?
