Hi Harry, 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.  
We are able to reproduce the issue with “XmlException is thrown while opening the excel workbook”. The fix for this issue will be included in our main release 14.2v which will be rolled out on June 2016. 
Please let us know if you have any concerns.
