Excel space viewer with 6.5.1_2400


I am trying to use Excel Space viewer to visualize data from space. I am using MS office 2003, JDK 1.5 and Gigaspaces 6.5.1(build 2400). I have set JSHOMEDIR and JAVA_HOME variables properly. After installing Excel viewer from "http://www.gigaspaces.com/tempfiles/excelsetup/GigaSpacesViewerSetup.zip" space browser toolbar appeared in Excel. But when I try to connect to a space it is throwing an exception

"System.IO.FileNotFoundException: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'GigaSpaces.Core, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=94297b57ee0e4ad5' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified."

Then I tried setting the dotNet/lib dlls in the path and that didn't work. Then I copied the dotnet/lib folder to MSoffice excel installation directly and now it complaints about 2 versions available. Then I tried Editing registry and replcaing Gigaspaces.Core assembly with newer version - even that didn't work.

Any suggestions on how to make this work on 6.5.1 would be great

You’ll need a space viewer version that was compiled for 6.5.1 version. I’ll compile one and put it on the site for download. I’ll let you know once it’s ready.

Please keep in mind the Excel viewer is currently only at Beta stage.

You will need to use the .Net api and implement such viewer yourself.

The sql query is basically what you need to use. Its very simple.
