The newest version of Excel Add-in, 188.8.131.52, from HP's Live Network site, list the following workaround for the error. They state that this can occur for an install without admin privileges, but I have seen this error occur when an admin was logged on a workstation and ran the install. But the fix was used as suggested and corrected the issue from occurring.
Error: ''Compile error in hidden module: mdlGlobal''
From the new readme for 184.108.40.206:

The Windows Common Controls mscomctl.ocx file has become un-registered. To resolve this issue, either:
