I am a Learning Consultant / Publishing expert, I cannot install the ADD-IN

It was reported that in some cases the installation of the Excel ADDIN fails. This is due to the fact that the Microsoft Office Addins folder containing application add-ins is protected on write access.

Try the following:

  1. Reboot your PC. This is to ensure that Microsoft Office was not started. Do not start Excel or Word or Powerpoint.
  2. Locate the Microsoft Office ADDIN folder, it should be here: C:\Users\[your username]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\AddIns
  3. Copy the file "IR Quiz Editor - addin.xlam" located in this sharepoint to that folder.
  4. You need to (re)activate the add-in. Open Excel application, then 'File' then 'Options' then 'Add-ins' then on the manage section click on the button 'Go'. If the file name "IR Quiz Editor - addin" appears then select it. If it does not appear then click on the button 'browse' selecting the file. => the add-in is activated and installation is done.
