It looks like there was some sort of glitch in downloading a piece of required software from the Microsoft site.  (That software is called "Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for the Microsoft Office System (version 3.0 Runtime) Service Pack 1 (x86).")  Please try downloading and installing that software first by going to, then run the NodeXL setup program again.

Correct Tony, searching for the name of the software allowed to successfully download the visual studio tool set. (the link in the mail is not OK)

One more isssue the NodeXL set-up, has an issue with Windows7 the defualt security on the file syqtem is to high, and the set-up is failing, an update of the access rights is required.

With this 2 elements the installation is OK (even with Office 2010 beta)

Thank you Tony

I've added a note to the version page saying that you have to right-click Setup.exe in Windows Explorer and select Run as Administrator.  That works around the security bug you noted.  (Version has a new setup program and is marked as an Alpha release.)  This bug will be fixed in the next Beta version,, and the Run as Administrator step will not be required.

I'm not sure why the link I included above did not work for you.  When I click on it, it takes me directly to the download page for the Microsoft software I mentioned.  Could it be that you have a firewall that is blocking access to Microsoft sites?  Or perhaps the site was having intermittent problems.

In any case, I'm glad things are working for you now.
