Hello,

When i try to install it, it doesn't let me because i already have data mining add-ins running on my computer.
Is there a way i can install it even after having my table analysis tools?

The link contains download and installation instructions (see below) that should have been followed when installing the Data mining add-ins.  Remove the existing version of the add-ins from your computer and follow the instructions provided.

Excerpt from link above:

Instructions

Note: If you have an earlier version of the Data Mining Add-ins installed, you must remove it using Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel before installing the latest version. User settings, such as Connections, will not be removed.

Step 1: Verify that you have Microsoft Office 2007 installed.

Step 2: If you do not already have Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 or later, install Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 or later from the Microsoft Download Center.

Note: If you intend to install the Table Analysis Tools for Excel or the Data Mining Client for Excel, verify that the .NET Programmability Support component is installed under Microsoft Office Excel by running Microsoft Office 2007 Setup from Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel. The default install of Microsoft Office Excel includes this component.

Note: If you intend to install the Data Mining Templates for Visio, verify that the .NET Programmability Support component is installed under Microsoft Office Visio by running Microsoft Office Visio 2007 Setup from Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel. The default install of Microsoft Office Visio includes this component.

Step 3: Download the Data Mining Add-ins by clicking the SQLServer2005_DMAddin.msi link later on this page. To start the installation immediately, click Run. To install at a later time, click Save. The license and documentation are installed with the Data Mining Add-ins.

Step 4: The Help documentation for this release has been updated. To obtain the latest help files, download DMAddins_Office2007_Help.exe to a folder on your computer and run it to extract the .chm Help file.
