Windows 7: Win 7 "broke" my Excel Add in

For what it's worth, I am using the stock retrieval add-in on Windows 7 with no issues.

My C users myusername appdata roaming microsoft addin folder is empty.

I am using Excel 2007.

I have used the stock retrieval add-in successfully in these combinations:

Vista, Excel 2003
Vista, Excel 2007
Win 7, Excel 2007

I didn't have to make any modifications at all when I moved to Win 7---just a fresh install of Excel 2007. My stocks spreadsheet automatically worked as well under Win 7 as it did under Vista--including data connections and macros.

I don't remember all the details of the Excel install, but if memory serves you have to deliberately choose to install the Excel ToolPak?

Perhaps the difference is that you are using Excel 2007, perhaps it is in the stock data add-in you are using.

To be clear my add-in does work, but I do have to reset existing spreadsheets so that they are built under the new addressing conditions. This does leave me with a works on Win 7 or WinXP situation.

Here is the one I am using. It's a MS product, but they may have other versions?

I am using a similar add-in from QuotesPlus.

QuotesPlus is a commercial/Annual Fee service that provides more data fields than the MS equivalent.
