Cannot open my excel files on desktop

There are case seen when Excel won’t start and shows error "An error occurred when sending commands to the program”

Commonly, this type of error is faced by the users when the workbook you are trying to access data from another application which is still active. Or a lot of Excel add-ins has been added to the program, or any one of the add-ins has become corrupt.

So, in this case, try this:

1. Activate a button that was created by a third-party add-in or application
2. Try to open an embedded object
3. Save or open a file
4. Try to use the Send as Attachment option
5. Call another application from the Excel workbook.

Hope this will help you for else know more solution here: http://www.repairmsexcel.com/blog/how-to-fix-an-error-occurred-when-sending-commands-to-the-program-in-ms-excel

Use 'Open and Repair' Option of MS Excel: For this, open Excel, and then go to 'File >> Open'. Select the file that you want to open, but do not double-click it. Go to the 'Open' drop-down provided in the 'Open' dialog box, and then select 'Open and Repair' option from there.
