HomeTroubleshooting@RISK for Excel: Simulation"Non-modal forms cannot be displayed in this host application from an ActiveX DLL, ActiveX control, or Property Page."

4.38. "Non-modal forms cannot be displayed in this host application from an ActiveX DLL, ActiveX control, or Property Page."

Applies to: @RISK 7.x

When I click Start Simulation, I get this message:

Non-modal forms cannot be displayed in this host application from an ActiveX DLL, ActiveX control, or Property Page.

You have an active add-in that is incompatible with @RISK. There may be multiple add-ins that cause this problem, but so far we have seen only one.

The Laserfiche client software component called "Laserfiche Office Integration 8.3" is known to be incompatible with @RISK. It contains Office plugins that prevent @RISK from bringing up some windows. Those plugins can't be disabled from within Excel, but that component must be uninstalled by using the Laserfiche installer.

Other add-ins, or other versions of Laserfiche, may also have this issue; only Laserfiche 8.3 is confirmed at this time.
