Cognos for Office and CAFE showing Unable to create specified ActiveX control error message shows when trying to start the IBM Cognos add-in within Microsoft Excel 2007. We have the Add-in appearing in the Excel ribbon. However now when we click on the button and then following that the IBM Cognos 'plug' icon to launch the add-in itself, we see an error message: "Unable to create specified ActiveX control." We have both Cognos for Office and Cognos CAFE installed on these machines. We are only installing on Microsoft Excel 2007 Suite. Everyone is on Windows 7 We currently have the following settings in Excel: In the trust center, under ActiveX controls: The radio button, "Prompt me before enabling all controls with minimal restrictions" is selected Under Add-ins: None of the check boxes are checked This is happening on some machines while on others the add-in installs and works correctly.
I have attached the error message
Anyone else seen this error?
