You are right... MC does look to open Excel.

I thought all it needed was to save into a csv file.

Did you try creating a shortcut for scalc.exe and renaming it as excel.exe? Maybe, this would do the trick. I have both installed, so I can't test it for you.

Same problem here.
Does someone has a workarround?
Performance report can not be saved since I only have Openoffice on that computer.

Install MS Office Demo version. Don't touch it. For editing or reading Office files use your own program like Openoffice. MC can create the Perforfance report without problem even after the testing period is over. Maybe it also works with the free MS office version, but never tested it.
