Revisiting Excel Interop

I ran into problem today relating to Excel interop. A coworker made a change to a C# application I wrote and was trying to build it. The program relied on a project which had a reference to the Microsoft Excel 9.0 Object Library which ships with Office 2000. However, the coworker had Office 2003 installed which includes the Excel 11.0 Object Library and not the Excel 9.0 Object Library. Because of this, he could not build the application.
