File | Import | Excel unspecified error "Data source name not found and no default driver specified"

If MS-Excel (or MS-Office or some equivalent software/driver) is not installed

then Micromine's menu option File | Import | Excel gives this error:

You can install www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=13255 (the 32-bit version) to do the import without having Excel/Office installed.
(Or else get the file in CSV format and then import via File | Import | Text.)
