Node XL not installing on Excel 2013 PC

Oct 11, 2013 at 5:48 PM
Hi

I'm running Office 2013 on Parallels from my mac but when I install Node XL and click on Node XL template it only opens it up on my mac - not on the Windows on parallels where I've installed it. Nothing changes on Excel 2013 on PC and I'm wondering; how can I fix it?

I've selected for all users when installing Node XL but it's still opening on my mac Excel rather than my PC excel.

How can I install it just for the PC?

Thanks

Hello, Charlie:

It sounds like something is wrong with the "file associations" for Excel files on the Windows side. When Windows sees a ".xltx" Excel template file, for example, it should know that the file gets opened with Excel 2013, not the Mac version of Excel.

I don't have Parallels and so I can't step you through the fix for this. But take a look at the following article, which discusses how to set file associations:

You need to set the file associations for ".xltx" and ".xlsx" files to Excel 2013 for NodeXL to work properly.
