Solution:


Web ADI is not compatible with the 64-bit version of Excel at least in part because of the issues in VBA.

The recommendations for which edition of Office 2010 to install are as follows:


If users in your organization depend on existing extensions to Office, such as ActiveX controls, third-party add-ins, in-house solutions built on previous versions of Office, or 32-bit versions of programs that interface directly with Office, we recommend that you install 32-bit Office 2010 (the default installation) on computers that are running both 32-bit and 64-bit supported Windows operating systems.


(This is what applies to yourselves as you are using third-party add-ins built on previous versions of Office)


To run Web ADI you will need to uninstall the 64-bit version of Excel (Office?) and reinstall as 32 bit.
