PI BatchView DataLink conflict in Excel

Hi all,


I have PI BatchView and PI DataLink installed on my computer and I have been using the DataLink Add-in with Excel 2016 without issue. I recently tried to add the BatchView Add-In by selecting the unchecked "PI-BatchView" option pictured below.

When I checked the fourth box and selected OK, I received the following message:

I can't quite understand it since I'm using DataLink it is clearly installed. I then checked the COM Add-ins, but everything seems in order there too:

Ever since this occurred, I now receive the following messages when I open and close Excel:

The Help button tells me that there is an ActiveX issue, but I'm not sure where to go from there.

Any ideas on how to get BatchView working?

Thanks for your help.
