When trying to open a workbook, I get the following error:

Cannot locate workbook item: xl/workbook.xml

Excel.ExcelEngine eng = new Excel.ExcelEngine();
Excel.IApplication exc = eng.Excel;
Excel.IWorkbook wk;
wk = (exc.Workbooks.Open(Res.Default.DAILYREPORT));

I am unable to open a .xlsb workbook.

I am creating an instance of class Syncfusion.XlsIO.Implementation.ApplicationImpln. 

I'm trying to set a workbook variable by using Workbooks.Open(path) method. The error says the same as reported here.

Hi Keith, 
Thank you updating us. 
XlsIO does not have support to open the .xlsb workbook. The file formats supported by XlsIO are mentioned in the following link. 
To know more about the supported features in XlsIO kindly refer the following UG documentation link.
