[Sticky] How to enable/disable GlueXL from Excel  


The following guide was produced using Excel 2016. The menus might be slightly different for other versions of Excel.

In order to use GlueXL its install directory must first be added to the list of trusted locations in Excel. To do so follow these steps:

  1. In Excel, go to File->Options->Trust Center
  2. Click on “Trust Center Settings…”. A new window looking like this should pop up. Go to "Trusted Locations":
  3. Choose “Add new location…”. A new window looking like this should pop up:
  4. Fill in the correct GlueXL install path for your machine. The default location is %LOCALAPPDATA%\Tick42. Make sure “Subfolders of this location are also trusted” is checked. Add a Description that will help you identify this plugin later.
  5. After you’ve filled all fields, click OK.

At this point you’ve successfully registered GlueXL in Excel. You can start the add-in by hand opening the correct XLL file (GlueXL.xll if your office is 32-bit or GlueXL64.xll if your office is 64-bit). If you want to configure Excel to start GlueXL on start up, then follow these steps:

  1. Go to File->Options->Add-ins
  2. On the dropdown in the bottom of the window, select Manage: “Excel Add-ins” and press “Go…”. A new window looking like this should appear
  3. Click “Browse…” and locate the GlueXL.xll file (Or GlueXL64.xll if you’re using 64-bit version of Excel)
  4. Press “OK” on all open windows. A new entry in your Excel ribbon saying “Tick42” should appear.

To Disable GlueXL follow the same steps, but instead of adding remove the entries connected to GlueXL.
