Manual Installation

If you need to perform a manual installation because the automatic installer does not work, follow this procedure. CAUTION: you will need to repeat this procedure every time you upgrade the add-in.

  1. Download the file for the free Basic Add-in, or  the file for the Standard Add-in,  or file for the Core Add-in.
  1. Extract the files to a folder on your hard drive (right-click and select Extract All… from the pop-up menu). If you want to share the add-in with other users of the computer, make sure to put the files into a folder that all users can access.


  1. Open Microsoft Excel 2007, 2010, 2013 or 2016 on your Windows computer.
  1. Open the Excel Options (FileOptions) dialog.


  1. Select Add-ins and click the Go… button


  1. Click the Browse… button


  1. Locate the files you unzipped in step 2 and select the version of the add-in you want (Basic Add-in: AnalyticsEdgeBasic-32bit.xll or AnalyticsEdgeBasic-64bit.xll;  Standard Add-in: AnalyticsEdgeStandard-32bit.xll or AnalyticsEdgeStandard-64bit.xll ; Core Add-in: AnalyticsEdge-32bit.xll or AnalyticsEdge-64bit.xll ). NOTE: only one version will work depending on your installed Excel version (32-or-64 bit) — If one does not work, try the other.


  1. Click Open, and click OK to close the dialog.


The Analytics Edge ribbon should now appear when you open Excel.
