Unable to create excel instance


New Member
I have been learning how to use the Blue Prism toolset. I want to open an Excel document. I know I need to first create an instance, however I receive the following error message:
Internal : The system cannot find the path specified Error code:-2147467259 More Detail: System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception (0x80004005): The system cannot find the path specified

at System.CodeDom.Compiler.CodeDomProvider.CompileAssemblyFromDom(CompilerParameters options, CodeCompileUnit[] compilationUnits)
at BluePrism.AutomateProcessCore.clsCompilerRunner.Compile(String& sErr)

I am not sure what it is saying the error message is. Could someone add some clarity to the situation?

Thank you

You first close the BP and now try using msxl vbo and add create instance step.
All VBOs should be imported from BP VBO folder only. Check that path also.
