Installing Excel Add-ins Where All Users Can Access Them
Posted on 2006-11-23
On Win XP: How can I install an Excel Add-in so that all logged-on users can see it?
I tried putting it into the "All Users" directory, installing it into Excel while logged on as Administrator, then switching to another user. I was hoping the xla would be installed in Excel which I started it as that user, but it was not. Tried to manually install the add-in. The default path it wanted to go to was the home directory of that user. When I tried to navigate to the "All Users" directory, Application Data and below was not even visible.
The ideal solution would be if I could put the add-in in the All Users directory, install it into Excel, then have it already be installed in Excel for every user who then logged on.
