I was able to successfully export using netoffice in my local development machine. However When i deployed it in web server windows 2012 R2 with office 2013, Initially i got this error Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {00024500-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} failed due to the following error: 80070005 Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED)).

Then going through this article

I have created folder desktop Create the folder: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\config\systemprofile\Desktop

Now the error changed to progId not found. Excel.Application , going through one of you reply
