Server is not indexing Excel .XLSX files, but is indexing older Excel .XLS files

We discovered our Server 2012 Essentials (fully updated) is not indexing Excel .XLSX files at all, so none of our network users can search these files for content on the network. XLS files are indexed just fine. Is there an update we can install on Server 2012 to make this possible?

I have tried Googling for answers but there appears to be nothing official on what seems like what would be a very popular topic.

Regarding this point, the following article can be referred to as reference.
