**WARNING** TOS+ issues cause by October 10th Microsoft update KB4041676

Post by admin » Wed Oct 11, 2017 3:43 pm

While working on the sheet, I noticed that I was unable to save TOS+ (binary file), after my computer was updated with KB4041676. I am using Excel 2007 to develop TOS+.

After some head scratching, I figured out that this is another update that breaks the pre-update Excel's EXD file. You need to delete those.
To fix this problem, follow the steps outlined in the Wiki page here: Delete EXD files

Once I deleted all the .exd files on my PC, I was able to save TOS+ without further issues... :thumb1:

Instructions were clear but it didn't work. Should I have gotten some sort of confirmation on the delete portion?

What does it mean that it "didn't work"? Have you made sure that Macros are enabled? Which version of Excel are you using?

Add one more step: after deleting .EXD files, restart computer. Now it is working.
