Excel.exe Task Scheduler 0xe0000002 KERNELBASE.dll Office365

Trying to run a .xlsb file “Run whether the users user is logged on or Note”

Immediately comes up with error

When I choose to run the task interactively “Run only when user is logged on” it works fine to show the app is working

  1. You need to make sure Office is installed with Shared Activation so that other people can be logged into this server and the task can still run 
  • Use Registry Editor to add a String value (Reg_SZ) of SharedComputerLicensing with a setting of 1 under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\ClickToRun\Configuration.

2) You need to make sure you are not logged into the computer with the account that’s running the scheduled task it will fail , make sure it is totally logged out and sign in as another user to run it
