Why do I receive the error ‘Compile error in hidden module: cSinker’ when opening Excel?


After installing Office Connector, you open Excel and the following error message is immediately displayed:

Compile error in hidden module: cSinker
<OK> <Help>


This error is known to occur in the following versions of Excel (which are not supported):

  • Excel 2000 and prior.
  • Excel 2010, 64-bit version. Only the 32-bit version of Excel 2010 is supported.
