HPC Pack: Configuation Test for Excel Workbooks

Brian Lemanczyk 21 Reputation points

Running the diagnostic tests on HPC Services Pack 2019. After a little work the first three test pass; however, the fourth test "Launch Excel Application" fails. It gives the following error:

Assembly Microsoft.Hpc.Excel, Version=, Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35 cannot be loaded.

Excel has been installed is able to be launched manually, so I am not sure how to resolve this issue. Anyone know how to get Excel to launch properly?

    @Brian Lemanczyk Apologies for the delay in response and all the inconvenience caused because of the issue.

    I had discussion internally and below is the response I got from our internal team:

    This is a known bug in diagnostics as informed by our internal team. It only impacts the diagnostics test case, the customer can simply ignore this error. Internal Team is working to fix it, we currently don't have any specific ETA for same but rest assured it is being worked upon.

    Hope it helps!!!
