EMAGENIT Excel Add-In Activation Instructions

Internet Connection

Before activating any of our Add-Ins, you must have an active internet connection on your computer. If you do not, the software cannot be activated.

Free Trial Period

Our Microsoft Excel Add-Ins automatically come with a free 10 day trial period. After that time you will need to purchase a license from EMAGENIT. To activate the trial period, you will need a connection to the internet to start it, but you will not be asked for an email, name or any other such information.

.Net Framework

Our Microsoft Excel Add-Ins use the latest .Net Framework. This should automatically download from Microsoft with your Windows updates so you should not have to do anything here. If you have trouble running the installer or software or you get a Framework message, manually run Windows update on your computer or go to Microsoft.com and download the latest .Net Framework manually.

First Time Add-In Activation

  1. After installing the Add-In, proceed to your desktop and double click on the add-in icon to load it into Excel The icon will be black with a red border on the left-hand and bottom edge and will say the name of the add-in like Time Stamp. Excel can be open at this point or does not have to be opened. Excel will pop open when you double click the add-in icon on the desktop. Note that if Excel is open, it is highly recommended that you save all of your Excel work before launching the activation for the first time (just to be safe).

  2. When the add-in loads into Excel, a dialog box will appear. Click Enable Macros on the dialog box. Depending on your Excel version, you may have to create a new workbook at this point if you did not already have it open. Our software needs at least one workbook open to operate correctly or it will flag you, even during activation. To create a new workbook, just press Ctrl+N. After the software is installed, you can open any workbook you want.

Trial Period Don'ts

  1. Do not try to adjust the computer clock and date as the program tracks these parameters. If it detects a date and time shift in the computer, it will ask you to reset the date and time.
  2. Do not tryto access the system registry and change any of the program settings. Everything is encrypted and any tampering will cause the program to shut down until you pay for it.
  3. Once a trial has been activated for a computer and is over with, it cannot be activated again for that computer ever. Uninstalling the software and erasing the registry does not help. Even erasing and reloading Windows does not help.
