Swate Installation – Windows Excel Desktop via Installer

last updated at 2023-02-01

⚠️ If you have an older Swate version installed already, it might be necessary to clear the cache to apply the changes to Swate.

  1. Download the Windows Installer.
  2. Close all Office instances (Excel, Powerpoint, Word, ...)
  3. Unzip (Right clickExtract All..)
  4. Double click the install.cmd. You will be asked to give administrative permissions and in the end to allow changes to the registry. Allow both and you are good to go!
  5. Open Excel, go to InsertMy Add1.insShared Folder. There you should see both Swate and Swate.Experts.

Using the release archive

💡 As a university trying to publish to the Excel add-in store we encountered some legal roadblocks. Hence the current installer is far from perfect. Please check out the Alternatives (noted below), if the installer does not work for your setup. This especially applies to standalone MS Excel versions (e.g. Excel 2019, Excel 2021, etc.), too.
Please note that we cannot guarantee compatibility of Swate with Excel versions that are not part of MS 365.
