I am trying to load an excel sheet containing spatial information into ArcMAP 10.2. I get the following error message:


I am running 10.2 on Windows 8. I did not have the same problem on an older computer in Windows 7. The problem only occurs when I try to import excel files, not with shape-files.

(PS! The last sentence is in norwegian and translates into: "Class not registered")

What to do?
