Error with Excel 2010 but not Excel 2007

Two different machines running IIS servers, both running apache via xampp

On the one with office 2007 installed, everything runs great

on the one with office 2010 I get the following error:

Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'com_exception' with message 'Failed to create COM object `Excel.sheet': Invalid syntax '

This is from the following

$excel_app = new COM("Excel.application") or Die ("Did not connect");


Any help in resolving this would be appreciated.
