Where Can You Download Our Add-Ins?

The only authorized place to download our software from is our site. Never trust any download from another website unless we post the website name right here in this section that they can carry our software.

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.

.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.

  3. 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

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

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.
