I tried running it on XP with Office XP and found the same result.

Looking at the documentation I find this on MSDN

"Excel Primary Interop Assembly Reference
IWindows.CompareSideBySideWith Method
This method supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not
intended to be used directly from your code."

CompareSideBySideWith method is supported by Word but not Excel.
