Every time I start MS Excel 2016 in Windows 10, I receive this error. I have attempted to remove the checkmark next to "Ignore other apps that employ Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE)" in the Advanced settings, but the issue persists. Any recommendations?

Solution:

  1. You go to Regedit -> HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Sheet.12\Shell\Open :
    • change "ddeexec" key into "ddeexec.old"
    • change "command" key, Default value = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office 2016\Office16\EXCEL.EXE (%1)"
