Excel Connector: Compile Error in Hidden Module: Autoexec

I went to the setup tab and there is only one Office Edition to be downloaded.  I did so, then downloaded Excel Connector.  When I attempt to launch the xla, I can an error message "Compile error in hidden module: autoexec".  Looking through previous discussions, it was noted that one should look to see if Office Edition 3.0 is installed.  I checked and 2.0 is what downloads and installs from within setup.  Where can I get 3.0?  Also, the xla opens a spreadsheet, it doesn't give me a drop-down menu so I can update data back in to salesforce like I saw in the excel connector class at Dreamforce.
I'm excited to get started and now I'm stalled.  Thanks for your help!

Be sure to Install the Salesforce Office Toolkit first.  I think the latest is version 3.0 you can download here:

I received the same message when I first opened the Excel Connector, but by installing the Salesforce Office Toolkit that Sevn mentioned, the error went away.
