2.101. White X in Red Circle, No Error Text

When I launch Excel, I get a dialog box with "Microsoft Visual Basic" in the title bar. There's no text inside the box, just a white X in a red circle. I'm running Excel 2007 in a virtual machine.

You're experiencing a timing problem in Excel 2007. In a virtual machine, Excel 2007 can sometimes be too slow to finish loading before @RISK gives up on it. The simplest solution is to launch Excel, wait for it to load, and then launch @RISK.
