I have an Excel task which is providing error text through the GUI, but I don't know how to access the error task without the GUI and the error disappears if I move the cursor from the X

I have the project property Run64BitRuntime set to False (though it is not editable so even if I wanted to, couldn't change it to true)

By the way, installing the accessDatabaseEngine resolved the issue. While most people reporting this had 32bit office installed with no 64bit driver, I had 64bit installed with no 32 bit driver. The Run64BitRuntime=Falso was causing SSIS to run the 32 bit office driver which was not installed. – Thronk Sep 13 '13 at 1:37
