I have Office 365 on my desktop. I just received an email in Outlook from a co-worker with an Excel file attached. But I can't preview the file at all. Here's the message I'm getting: This file cannot be previewed because there is no previewer installed for it. I tried just to open it with no luck. Everything is installed correctly.

    Have you ever changed the default program for opening Excel files by any reason? If understood correctly and if excel installed with latest updates, then open an Excel file (which resides on your system) and right click to open Properties and make sure that excel is the default program to opening these type of files. After that again try the same.
