There are a number of failed jobs With the error Message "Excel failed to open document - The Remote procedure Call failed (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706BE)"

DCOM Config > Microsoft Excel Application > Identity is the same as the user for PixEdit Server Core. 

Any suggestions on what could be the cause?

One of the most common causes for Excel problems are the default selected printer. 

Make sure that you have "Microsoft XPS Document writer" as default printer. 


Hope this helps.
