No node xl tab on ribbon when installed on Windows 2010

Aug 8, 2011 at 4:15 AM

I am new to node xl and social network analysis. I hope someone can help me with this issue.

I installed node xl successfully (as far as I could tell). I then followed instructions and successfully opened the node xl template. However, there is no node xl tab on the excel ribbon.

 

Please help :)

I received the following error report:

Please try manually installing the "Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for the Microsoft Office System (version 3.0 Runtime) Service Pack 1 (x86)."  This is a piece of required software that is supposed to be automatically installed with NodeXL, but it looks like something went wrong during its installation.  You can download it from here:
