I don't really think my issue is a maxscripting problem, but I hope someone can help me...
I have made a script for 3d studio max

My code is
xl = createOLEobject "Excel.Application"

And I get this error:
---------------------------
MAXScript Rollout Handler Exception
-- Runtime error: createOLEObject: can't find server Excel.Application
---------------------------

I have Excel 2010 running on my PC - but it's only a trial.

I don't think it's the code since It's running fine on another PC (and has for some years now) but now I need to make some changes, so I need it to run on my own PC.

Does anyone know what I can do, to get this server issue sorted out...?

You've probably worked it out now but it does sound like Excel being a trial version is the issue.
