OFFICE 2013 X-64 some EXCEL addins don't work

Hi there
I have some EXCEL addins mainly for getting stock data in real time (or almost real time) from places like CBOE (chicgago board of options Exchange etc). Use a lot for Options trading etc.

When I try and install I get message : EXCEL IS NOT INSTALLED.

Major Showstopper for me this one although if you don't use addins it probably won't matter to you. Sounds just a small problem but this is actually a GO-NOGO type of situation -- it's NOGO.


(Same prob with on both W7 X-64 and W8 RP x-64).

Quick roll back to Office 2010 before the Markets open on Monday !!!! -- always take backups when doing this type of testing -- fortunately I have the "Before" images.

Cheers
jimbo

That doesn't really surprises me. The addin is probably looking for a specific version number on Excel and doesn't recognizes anything outside a very particular range and simply ignores newer versions. Or it may be that the new Office is simply incompatible with existing addins.

Similar issues happens with most addins in most programs too. I particularly suffer it with every new version of Thunderbird breaking all existing plugins (reason for which I almost never update it).

You are better off sticking to 32 bit versions of Office even on 64 bit Windows, then ensures any add-ons will work.

tried as well -- still no good. "This version of EXCEL is not recognized".

But often the version of the program is as problematic as the 32/64 bits issue. Agree that 64 bits programs break some compatibility, but so does often at every new version.
