Excel created unable to open in Kingsoft Office

Hi, I tried to create a simple Excel using ClosedXML. It's able to open in Microsoft Excel, but Kingsoft did not able to open it. May I know is that those Excel generated by ClosedXML only compatible with Microsoft Excel?

ClosedXML generates OpenXML files (which are supposed to be a standard). I don't make them Excel specific but I do use Microsoft tools (mainly the OpenXML SDK and Excel) to verify the files I produce.

Does Kingsoft Office give you any clue as to what's wrong with the file?

It's just prompt out error saying that Kingsoft encountered a problem and unable to open the file. I tried to open the file in Microsoft Excel and save as another file, then Kingsoft able to open it. I am not sure what is going wrong, it's embarassing as my company is going to switch from using Microsoft Excel to Kingsoft, this problem make me totally no idea.

Nope, it only creates OpenXML files.
