Miscellaneous Question

Excel crashes on refreshing data.

05/09/2017 3794 views
In our environment we have Microsoft Office 2010 products except Outlook and Skype. Outlook and Skype are from Office 2016.

So, there started a problem with Excel 2010. When the user tries to "refresh" the data from the "data" tab, the excel crashes. According to the user, it all started after Outlook and Skype 2016 were installed.

What I tried so far;

1. https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/the_microsoft_excel_support_team_blog/2011/11/21/excel-crashing-look-at-your-com-add-ins-first/
From the above link, tried disabling com addins one by one and checking. No result so far.

2. Tried opening Excel in safe mode. No result. 

3. File-> right click-> open with (browsed the path of Excel.exe for Excel 2010) Not worked.

4. Editing the registry: Instead of OFFICE 16, I did OFFICE 14. But didn't work.

A) [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb)]

B) [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Microsoft Access Text Driver (*.txt, *.csv)]

C) [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Microsoft Excel Driver (*.xls, *.xlsx, *.xlsm, *.xlsb)]

Any Suggestions Please?

Thanks in advance.
