Re: Can't insert Object files (excel) nor open a workbook object

Use Windows Explorer or My Computer to search your hard drive for a Norton AntiVirus file named OFFICEAV.DLL (be sure to include hidden and system files/folders in the search options). If you find it, note the folder where it is located, and use the "regsvr32 /u" method described in KB329820 to unregister the DLL.

Or since you have Symantec Corporate Edition, you might ask your company's computer support staff for assistance.

If you're using Symantec/Norton AntiVirus, try disabling the Office Plugin that comes with it. See "How to use Office programs with the Norton AntiVirus Office plug-in" for more information.

Hi all,

Trying to open and embedded Excel file won't work nor trying to insert another object. It seems that another installed sofware limited this capability.

This are the message obtained.

Microsoft Office PowerPoint can't start the application required to open this object.
An error ocurred and this feature is no longer funtioning properly. Would you like to repair this feature now?

If you press "yes"

Second: A progress bar appear showing the following message:
Installing: Application server.


The server application, source file, or item can't be found, or returned an unknown error. You may need to reinstall the server application.

Would anyone knows if there is any register key that could have been altered that disables this functionality.?

Does anyone has experience this before, that could know how to solve it?
