The instructions below are for installation in a Windows environment. For installation on a Mac, see Installing the Modano Excel Add-In on a Mac.
The Modano Excel add-in is not traditional Excel add-ins which can be installed via the Add-Ins Manager dialog box in Microsoft Excel. Instead, it must be installed using a regular Windows MSI installer, like other programs (no administrator privileges required).
The steps below explain how to install the Modano Excel add-in on a standalone computer in a non-virtual environment. For installation in virtual environments, see Virtual Machines and Remote Server Installations. For installation in large corporate environments see the relevant section below.
- Ensure that Microsoft Excel 2007 or newer is installed.
- Uninstall any prior versions of the Modano Excel add-in (see Uninstall or change a program).
- Ensure you have a Modano account (you will need your login credentials) along with a software subscription. You can Login to your account here to verify.
- Download the Modano installer to your local drive using the following link:
- Ensure that the Modano installer is completely downloaded and then open it via your browser, or alternatively use Windows Explorer to double click the installer file directly.
- Follow the installation wizard prompts to install the software.
If the installer does not run properly after download, try moving the installer *.msi file to your desktop folder before running it again.
The installer can be deleted from your local drive following the successful installation, as it can always be downloaded again from your My Modano page.
If you intend to install the software onto a range of servers to be accessed remotely (via Terminal Services or similar), then the Modano Global installer is available. The Global installer is different to the Standard installer in that it will install onto the machine (Program Files) for all users, rather than the current users profile. Once the Global install is complete the software will be available to all users locally on the machine, or via opt-in selection for those using Terminal Services (please ensure you follow the opt-in setup instructions for the Global installer from the Modano Software Architecture documentation). You can also control the specific installation folder. The Global installer requires administrator privileges because it installs for all users.
For installation, follow the same steps as the Standard Install, however use one of the following installers. If you have access to custom installers, and are logged in, they will be listed below.
Also ensure you download the document below and read the relevant details around setup for the Global installer
Virtual Machines and Remote Servers
Modano supports installation on virtual machines using VMWare, Oracle VirtualBox and Microsoft Virtual PC. It also supports connecting to the session remotely using Citrix or Terminal Services. These configurations are often prevalent in enterprise environments and should preferably use the Global installer to allow for machine based installation and opt-in configuration (see above). The Global installer isn't strictly required as the Standard installer behaves the same way with regards to virtual machines and remote servers.
In these environments licensing for the software is always user-based, so ensure you have sufficient licences for all the software users.
