How are Our Microsoft Excel Add-Ins Downloaded?
Our Microsoft Excel Add-Ins are downloaded as a .zip file.
This is to avoid any potential security conflicts on your computer and also to give you an actual copy of the software
so you can transport it from computer to computer. You only need one copy to put it on say 10 computers. Each version will
need its own license or
you can contact EMAGENIT where we can provide one with a corporate license.
Our phone # is at the top of the page.
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.
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
Microsoft Excel Add-In Download Instructions
- To install any of our Add-Ins, you must
have administrator privileges on your computer. If you
are in an office setting, you may have to request it
from your IT department. If you are on your personal
home computer, you should have it by default.
- Click on the Download button to the right of the purchase button on the Excel Add-In home page
from which you wish to download.
- Depending upon your browser, you
may be prompted at the bottom of the browser screen or
via dialog box to
save the file or it will automatically download and be
saved to the default download folder for the browser. If
it prompts you to open as well as save, do not open it
at this point just save it. You can figure out the default download
folder for a browser by generally going into the browser settings and looking around.
Most browsers default folder is the Downloads
folder in Windows. The following three pictures
demonstrate what it looks like once the Download
button has been clicked in Google Chrome, Firefox and
Microsoft Edge. If you are given a choice, you can save it to any folder you like.
Microsoft Excel Add-In Installation Instructions
- To install the add-in,
first open the zip
file just downloaded in Windows. Some browsers will give you the ability
to open the downloaded zip file directly at the bottom of their
browser window like Google and Microsoft Edge after
downloading. In Google
it will be represented by an icon, like
a square with the name of the file in the center or as
an Open Folder button in Microsoft Edge. If you do not see an icon
or button at the bottom of your browser after saving, then proceed to the
default download folder and double click on the zip
file. It will be named after the Microsoft Excel Add-In
it represents and will be one word like TimeStamp.zip.
The following pictures represent the icon at the bottom
of Google Chrome, buttons at the bottom of Microsoft
Edge and the Download folder in Windows 10 if you have
to go find it.
- Once the .zip file is open,
double left-mouse click on the file with the name of the
Add-In and Setup in it as pictured below. For example, Time Stamp Setup.
The extension of the file will be .msi if you can see
it. Do not double click the file with only Setup in the
name. This file will have an .exe extension.
- Once the file is double clicked,
you might get a protection screen saying Windows will
not let the program run as presented in the first
picture below. If you do not see a Run button
on the screen, look for something like More Info and
click it (Windows version dependent). The Run button will
appear. Click it to run the program as presented in the
second picture below. All the program is
doing is registering a VB.Net class library with Windows, it is
not harmful in any way to your system.
- After you get past any Windows
you will encounter the first screen of the setup as
pictured below. Just
click the Next button to advance.
- On the next screen, you can choose what folder to install the program in on your computer
by clicking the Browse button or just use the default folder
already selected (recommended). You can also select to
install it just for your login or everybody that uses
the computer. If it is a single user computer, just
leave its default selection. Click the Next button to
advance as pictured below.
- On the next screen, just click
the Next button to begin installation as presented in
the first picture below. After clicking
the Next button, Windows will prompt you to allow
changes with a yellow dialog box, if may take a few
seconds to appear, answer Yes. After the installation is complete,
close the installer as presented in the second picture
- The next thing to do is to
activate the software.
Removing an Add-In from Windows
- To remove an add-in, first shut down Excel.
- In Windows, activate Add/Remove Programs. This screen can be viewed by typing Add and Remove Programs in the Windows Run box (Start Menu
Windows 7) or Cortana box.
- Find the name of the
add-in (Time Stamp for example) in the listings, right mouse click over the title and click Uninstall. In some versions, just click on the title and you will see
the uninstall button.(may vary slightly based on your Windows version).
- Answer Yes to any questions
that are posed.
- If you were auto loading
the add-in when Excel opened, the next time you open
Excel it will flag you that the add-in cannot be found.
Just click OK. In Excel 2010 and above, select
File/Options. In Excel 2007, click the Office button
(big ugly blue circle button) then Excel Options. Select
the Add-Ins tab on the dialog box. Click the GO button
at the bottom of the screen. On the Add-Ins dialog box,
uncheck the add-in name. Answer Yes when it prompts you
to delete the add-in from the list. Click the OK button
to complete the process.

version of the add-in, follow the install procedure
discussed above. Note that you do not have to go through
the activation sequence if it is an updated version.
