The setup program office add-in fails
The setup program doesn′t start and show a message "Office 2007 is not installed".
This error occurred because on the Pc environment, different version of Ms Office are previously installed, typically Office 2003 was installed.

If the value of this key is different from “Excel.Application.12”, the setup will identify that office 2007 is not installed.
Best practice to fix this is:
1) remove this registry key
2) run the repair of the most updated office 2007 or 2010
3) install the Board Office add-in

To enable the exports, search in the registry the key  HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTExcelApplicationCurVer as shown below:
It can happen in case of existing installations, that this key is not correct.

Excel.Application.11 (office 2003)
Excel.Application.12 (office 2007)
Excel.Application.14 (office 2010)
Excel.Application.15 (office 2013)
