    Introduction

    After elevating Excel using Application Control User Rights, when double clicking on an xlsx file, Excel opens but the Workbook is not loaded and you may get an error message advising 'There was a problem sending the command to the program'.

     

     

    Resolution

    This appears to be an issue with Excel. The issue no longer appears in version 16.0.9126.2259. I would suggest updating to the latest version of Office 2016.
