problems installing NodeXL

Feb 9, 2009 at 12:21 PM
Hi,

I'm having problems installing NodeXL.
I manage to go through the installation procedure without any problems, but when trying to open the template I get the following error:

"The customization assembly could not be found or could not be loaded... "

The rest of the error message is posted below.
I am using Windows XP and have Excel 2007. I preciously had NetMap installed but I have uninstalled that, as well as NodeXL and then reinstalled NodeXL and still getting the same error message. Any ideas as to why this happens?

Best regards,
 -lilli.

Lilli:

There was a problem in version 1.0.1.68 regarding regional settings.  If you attempted to run NodeXL on a computer set to use a comma as a decimal separator ("2,5" for two-and-a-half), you would get the error message you included above.

The problem was fixed in version 1.0.1.72, which you can find here:

http://www.codeplex.com/NodeXL/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=22940

You do not have to uninstall the defective version -- just install the new one.  If you still have problems running NodeXL, please let me know.

Thanks,
