Excel Setup Sheet: "Error: Post uses deprecated XML extension and need to be updated"

Setup sheet post worked yesterday, got this error message today. A Google search didnt return anything that looked helpful. No computer software updates that I know of.

Interesting. Is this the stock Excel Setup Sheet and post processor, or one of your own modifications?

I have modified it, but not recently

Any insight deciphering this error would be helpful, as I am not quite sure what the error message is trying to convey. Ive attached the post and excel document. 

This is the first time I have received this message.

Had same problem today

Some update on our end: The latest Fusion update seems to be responsible for this error in some way, as our other seat of Fusion was updated at a different time, and did not have the setup sheet error before, but did have the error after the update. 

Still looking for assistance from Autodesk.

Sorry for the delay in response; most Autodesk post developers were on Easter holiday break, so answers were hard to come by.

Apparently, we did find an issue in the new Setup Sheet post as well as the post kernel, so we've reverted those changes and you will see correct behavior in the next update. As a temporary measure, you can download the previous version of the Setup Sheet post processor and see if this fixes your issue.

Have you tried toggling the "Use upgraded Post Engine" on/off? I think this gets enabled automatically with an update..

That solved it. Thank you.
When the new update gets pushed, Ill check to see if that option is toggled on and see how it behaves.

Any exciting new post options coming with the upgrade, or is that just behind the scenes stuff?

I forgot to attach my modified post that works with that option box checked.. I will do that and include my excel template you can look at too. I don't have any info on updates, or what else that box may affect.. maybe @seth.madore may have some insight?

The latest Fusion update did not solve this issue. Still need to keep "Use Upgraded Post Engine" unchecked.

Did you download the latest Autodesk post? Or have you tried mine that I attached here?

I did look at your post file, there were several differences in the functions that handle the XML for Excel. Since Seth had said that an error was found in the post kernel and would be fixed, my plan is to wait for that fix instead of re-writing my current post.

We were discussing this in the HSM forum as well. There are attachments here with updated posts:
Error: "Post uses deprecated XML extension" after F360 update v.2.0.18719

Interesting. Based on  Viacheslav's reply there will not be a fix coming. Looks like Ill have to fit some time into my schedule to download the latest Excel post and re-apply my modifications to it.

I ported the changes over on a second post that I have for a different machine, it wasn't terrible. For the most part it was copying and overwriting whole functions, then adding the excel helper functions that were new. A text editor that performs comparisons between two files is really helpful.

The code comparison in Visual Studio Code is decent enough. Just something to gripe about.  It'll be a good excuse to clean things up. Thanks for showing me that thread tho, I would have been waiting for a fix that never came.
