TROUBLESHOOTING


  1. If the installer disappears very quickly after clicking install, it's likely your antivirus is blocking the install.  Contact your IT to have them disable the antivirus prior to installing

    3. Navigate to Software | Microsoft | Office | Excel | Addins | miExcel.AddInModule
