When you start Excel or use the Microsoft Forecaster Excel Add-in, you receive this error message:

Microsoft Forms - Could not load an object because it is not available on this machine


The Excel Add-in engine did not register properly.


Manually register the add in engine.

  1. Close Excel

  2. Select Run from the Start menu and then type: regsvr32 C:\Program Files\FRx Software\FRx Forecaster Components\FCAddin.ocx

NOTE: Your path may be different, so use Windows Explorer to locate the FCAddin.ocx file and enter the appropriate path for the file.
