You are generating excel output file via XML Publisher.
You defined a viewer pointing to MS Excel for file having EXCEL extension.
You installed MS OFFICE 2007 on your client PC.
When reviewing the generated output file, MS Excel is displaying a pop-up window showing:
"The file you are trying to open, 'FNDWRR.exe' is in a different format than specified by the file extension. Verify that the file is not corrupted and is from a trusted source before opening the file. Do you want to open the file now?"
If you select "Yes", then file is opened without any other issue.
This pop-up was not raised in previous version of MS Office.
Migrated to MS Office 2007.
