Excel opens without displaying a workbook

When you double-click a Microsoft Excel workbook (.xls file or .xlsx file) in Microsoft Windows Explorer, Excel does not open the file, and you may receive the following error message:

Cannot find the file 'path' (or one of its components). Make sure the path and filename are correct and that all required libraries are available.

In Window Vista, when you double-click an Excel workbook, Excel does not open the file, and you may receive the following error message:

Windows cannot find 'FilePath\FileName', Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.
