As the error message says, You must have Microsoft Excel installed in your client machine first! Follow this check list if you still getting this issue:
  • Download and install the Hotfix as in Microsoft KB: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2823322, applicable when SharePoint 2010 with Office 2013 installed in client machines.
  • Make sure you are using 32 bit of "Internet Explorer" (c:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe) browser (not Google chrome or Firefox!)
  • Make sure "SharePoint OpenDocuments Class" add-on is enabled in Internet Explorer's manage Addons page! Also under the "SharePoint open document class", click on "More information" then click "Allow on all sites" button.
  • Try re-registering "owssupp.dll" file  - run "Regsvr32 owssupp.dll"

  1. Hi

    I am facing this error for just one site hosted in our one premise server. All other sites are working fine, so i assume there is no issue with my office installation. What should I check in server end? Any idea
