    nVision processing


      I just came across a strange problem running nVision reports with Excel 2010 and PeopleTools 8.49 on Windows Server 2008. On a process scheduler server (also used as a file server workstation) I have installed the PIA drill down add-on, configured the scheduler with registering nVision and started the process.

      Now depending on DCOM settings I can only achieve ONE of these two things:
      1. Excel Application identity tab in DCOM is set with a specific user to run Excel
      - Report requests submited through the PeopleSoft application run to success
      - launching nVision from Application Designer only invokes a blank excel sheet, nothing more.

      2. DCOM identity is set as "Launching user"
      - Report requests in the PeopleSoft application always hang in proessing, always timing out after the specified period. I can see a psnvs.exe and excel.exe process consumimg CPU for a bit and then hanging.
      - nVision can be launched from Application Designer, launching the excel with a complete Drill menu.

      This will happen dynamically, always after changing the DCOM setting, no need to restart the server or any processes.

      Has anyone run across this? How can I configure the server to be able to successfully run both scenarios?

      Best regards.
