Quickr V8 Standard problem with Connectors and saving Excel files from an LS Script

Gentle reader this is a bit of an esoteric problem but a problem just the same.
The new Quickr standard connection utilities are a real boon and appear to work really well, however this came to light today and so far I have been able to duplicate the problem on PC's with both the Eclipse and standard Notes Clients installed but only with OFFICE 2003 so far.

Symptom:

In Notes Applications that use LS to access MS Office classes. If you programmaticaly open and populate an excel spreadsheet, when you come to save the excel file with
call xlSheet.SaveAs(strOutputFileName)
You get an MS Excel error "Cannot complete operation" and the save fails.

Uninstall Quickr connections the problem goes away, install it again and the
problem comes back. I have tried this on several PC's with the same results.

So next quandary ...where do you report Quickr-connector problems?

Steve, is that Quickr 8.0 or 8.1 ? Dave Hay

@dave

It is branded as Quickr 8.0.0.2 during the install and to be fair we have been using it for a fair while now and this is the first problem and it is a rather esoteric one that really only affects me
