I know that this problem has been a major issue with MS Office, but every fix I have found does not work.
Problem: "Cannot use linking and embedding" displayed when starting excel. Closing the warning closes the program.
Given facts: The OS is Windows 7. The excel is office 2007 version. The problem persists accross multiple files of various save version (2003 and 2007) and save locations (saved on local desktop as well as on fileshare for the enterprise). This problem is not persistent with other users, only this one. Problem does not persist on other computers.This problem is intermittent without a discernable pattern (IE: no single document or location triggers the event).
Attempts to fix:
Uninstalled and reinstalled entire office suite
Save older versions of a file in 2007 format
Enable and Disabled (yes, both) Dynamic Data Exchange
Checked that all add-in's were disabled.
Ensured corporate certificate was published under trusted certs
Delete user account from computer, start over
Delete user account from AD and Exchange, recreate
DBAN and Re-image computer
Check DCOM settings, Microsoft Excel Application does not exist (b/c we do not have 2010)
User prints to print server, but updated the driver to his printer anyways
This has been long term and persistent. Does anyone have any other ideas? I will try almost anything!
