Problem with Interop.Excel after uninstalling Office 2007 and installing Office 2003

I am developing a VB.Net application with VS 2005 that opens an Excel
workbook and populates the worksheet with data. I started developing the
application with Office 2007 installed on my Vista OS, but after I
discovered that it won't run on a system with Office 2003, I uninstalled
Office 2007 and installed Office 2003. I reset the reference in .Net to the
Microsoft Excel 11.0 Object Library. The application works fine from the
..Net IDE but when I compile and run the .Exe I get the following error

************** Exception Text **************
System.InvalidC astException: Unable to cast COM object of type
'Microsoft.Offi ce.Interop.Exce l.ApplicationCl ass' to interface type
'Microsoft.Offi ce.Interop.Exce l._Application' . This operation failed because
the QueryInterface call on the COM component for the interface with IID
'{000208D5-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}' failed due to the following error:
could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80030002
at Microsoft.Offic e.Interop.Excel .ApplicationCla ss.get_Workbook s()
at RunExcel.Form1. btnRunOutsideFo rm_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e) in
D:\FMI\Dev\NetP lay\VS2005\RunE xcel2003\RunExc el\Form1.vb:lin e 22
at System.Windows. Forms.Control.O nClick(EventArg s e)

This did not occur with the original Office 2007 installation. I've tried
running Office repair, uninstalling and reinstalling Excel .Net program
support from the Office installation, but none of this works. The exe works
on my test platform running WinXP and Office 2003 (clean installation where
Office 2007 was never installed).

It makes no difference whether Option Strict is on or off. The code is

Dim excelApp As Excel.Applicati on = New Excel.Applicati on
MessageBox.Show ("After Dim excelApp As Excel.Applicati on = New
Excel.Applicati on")

Dim Wbk As Excel.Workbook
MessageBox.Show ("After Dim Wbk as Excel.Workbook" )

Wbk = excelApp.Workbo oks.Add()
MessageBox.Show ("After Wbk = excelApp.Workbo oks.Add()")

excelApp.Visibl e = True
MessageBox.Show ("After excelApp.Visibl e = True")

It bombs at Wbk = excelApp.Workbo oks.Add(). I've tried using
ApplicationClas s and CreateObject but none of that works either.

Anyone know how to fix this short of reinstalling the entire operating

Hi, For years, I've been using visual basic and the Excel Object library version 9 and 10 to pass data back and forth between Visual Basic and Microsoft Excel. A few months ago, we changed over to Visual Basic .NET 2003. After converting the project, I dropped in my code from from the vb6 days, did a few slight modifications, refereneced the excel object library 10.0, and viola: worked with office 2000, xp, and 2003 right away.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
