The answer is simple. Find all XLSTART foldres and delete or move all files out of there. Once you've done that, excel should launch effortlessly.

Your solution work like a charm. It works better than adding the %1 parameter. I tried the %1 solution before and it worked for a short period of time and not as simple as adding an addin from Excel 2007. Thanks for the great tip!

Tried the other option first (removing files from XLSTART folder) and it had no effect.

Added the lookup addin and I can double click open xls files now!!

THANKS!!

I just applied this "fix" to 30 computers which were upgraded from 2003 to 2007 and it fixed every one of them. I looked like a genius.
Thank you so much for this. Great solution!

This has solved our issue after installation, thanks! Has anyone figured out how to include the add-in during the installation process for Office 2007 so each desktop doesn't have to be touched to turn it on? I can find no way to adjust the setting in the Office Customization Tool?

Also upgraded from Office 2003 to 2007 - This fixed my issue too.

My problem was defined as:

When double clicking on an .xls or .xlsx file I waited for 1 minute and a few seconds. Your fix has been applied and the now open in less then 10 seconds.
--
Additionally, I was able to open excel and do file open or drag&drop and they were able to open quickly that way but they didnt open immediately if the actual file was double clicked.

Thank you very much.. this was a headache for me for so long.. boss and staff members scolding regarding the problem.. now it work fine..

AndreZan said...

Oh man! That's really odd, but it works also for me!

Do you work for Microsoft? How come you found this out!? That's really the weirdest solution i've ever seen for a performance problem. Install another component, make it heavier and it will run better ....hahahahahah!
Things that only MS will do for you..

For me both solutions worked well: install add-in or delete everything in map %appdata%\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART
