Open method of Workbooks class failed was created by Ako Si Aien
Hi do you have any idea why is it that when I try to run a batch file via task scheduler, I get "Open method of Workbooks class failed" error every time the .fhd file tries to open an excel file but when i try to trigger .fhd in the flowheater gui, it does not return that error...

example: run this code via batch file in scheduler
Y:\myloc\flowheater\fhbatch.exe /massdata Y:\myloc\fhd\myflowheaterfile.fhd

returns the output

FlowHeater (R) Batch Modul: Version 3.1.0
Start: 27.04.16 06:04:05
Open method of Workbooks class failed

but when i trigger myflowheaterfile.fhd manually in the flowheater gui, it works.

please help. thanks.

Hi Ako Si Aien,

This Excel automation issue is a bug related to Windows 2008 / Windows 8 and all further version as well.

You can solve this by creating one (on 64 bit operating system two) directories manually.

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\config\systemprofile\Desktop (only on 64 bit operating systems available)
and
C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\Desktop

You`ll find more information about here: Excel 2007 automation on top of a Windows Server 2008 x64

Best wishes
Robert Stark
