Swate Desktop Installation

last updated at 2023-02-01

⚠️ Currently there is no installer available for Linux or MacOS. Please check out the alternatives.

💡 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.

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