I'm getting an error when I try to use my CMS import on a production server. The error relates to a driver not being installed but the problem for me is I can run exe's on that server. I was hoping to find out if I can copy a .dll into the bin folder on the server to run it. If I can use this approach, which .dll files do I need for this?
Driver not installed, please download and install the following driver from Microsoft to handle all versions of Microsoft Excel
The driver is updating registry as well. So you need to install on the server. The next version of CMSImport is using a different component for Excel that doesn't require installation on the server. You can already use it when you download the latest dll's from
Copy the dll's to your bin folder then all should work.
I downloaded the hotfix and copied the .dlls into the bin folder and now I get the following error. Any ideas?
Server Error in '/' Application.

Think there is still some info in cache. Can you reset the site?
I restarted the app pool and I'm still getting the error. Anything else I can try?
What version of Umbraco are you using?
HI Richard, I'm using
umbraco v 4.7.0 (Assembly version: 1.0.4090.38017)
Hi Richard, Is the version of umbraco I'm using compatable?
Yes is comatible I assume you used the latest CMSImport before installing the hotfix as well?
I did not upgrade the CMS import install. Is the upgrade available from here? Do I just import the whole package and write over what is there already?
Sorry thought you were already using the latest version. Yes install the latest version then replace the dll's
Thanks for your help on this.
I installed the latest version and applied the hotfix and it works fine.
I used Excel files with the extension .xlsx
Great to hear Sean can you mark the topic as solved please?
