I have installed the excel.exe (Office365) via ODT in my docker container.

I have followed the step in the below link.

I can see the app got installed.

But I am not able to run the app. Tried to execute the following via powershell. But it is not recognizing the application

$ol = New-Object -ComObject Excel.Application
