LafortuneThere is Nothing, no XLTool, when I follow those steps: Activate XLTools manually: open Excel > File > Options > Add-Ins > Select ‘Manage ‘Com Add-Ins’ on the bottom of the box > Go > Check the box ‘XLTools Add-in for Microsoft Excel’ > Ok.

Dmytro NeschetnyiI activate my license but in features nothing is.

Maria BalobanovaHi Dmytro, looks like you are running an outdated XLTools version. I have emailed you the details about the upgrade.

Krsiti WhiteFor whatever reason, the XLTools tab keep disappearing. I keep having to download the trial, then reenter my license number. Am I doing something wrong? It works for a few weeks, then disappears again. Maybe when my computer updates?

Maria BalobanovaDear Krsiti, Sometimes Excel would push out any add-ins it has installed. Please, reinstall XLTools once again to make sure you have the latest version. If XLTools tab disappears from the ribbon again, you may have to activate it manually: Activate XLTools manually: open Excel > File > Options > Add-Ins > Select ‘Manage ‘Com Add-Ins’ on the bottom of the box > Go > Check the box ‘XLTools Add-in for Microsoft Excel’ > Ok. Hope this helps!

MalRHi I downloaded it (Excel closed). I clicked on the .exe file to load it but message came up that I already have it. I must have loaded it previously. I tried File/Options/Add ins to put it onto my Add ins but the download is an .exe file not an add in. Can you advise please how to instal it once it is already loaded Thanks MalR

Hi Suraj,

XLTools requires administrator rights to install it on your PC. This could be one of the reasons for the error. I have sent you an email - please send me a screenshot to investigate the issue. Thank you!
