Excel opens visible when not run as admin

Dec 15, 2014 at 9:39 PM
Even if you set visible = false on the application object, Excel opens as visible unless you are a local admin or right click and run as admin.
Is there any other way to make Excel open invisible without making the user an admin?

i need more info to reproduce the scenario.

Operating System Version(32 or 64)
Excel Version (32 or 64)
Project Details, Addin or Application, if application: from desktop or running from system service(like IIS on a server).
if addin: which IExensibility trigger is currently running.
Some code is greatly appreciated of course.

(btw: make sure excel doesnt load other third party addins for a clean test scenario)
