I installed latest nodexl (NodeXL_1.0.1.245) on my new machine - Windows 7 64 bit, office 2010. Installation was successful. But when I try to open my ready nodexl files transfered via dropbox there error message appears: Microsoft Excel is searching for Smrf.NodeXL.ExcelTemplate.vsto in not existed directory "Microsoft research".
Can you give me advice what to do in this situation.
The old files are made with version 1.0.1.229

I can't tell much without seeing the full error message, but the first thing you might try is to copy one of those NodeXL workbooks from your DropBox folder to your desktop, and try opening it from there. If it opens from there, it has something to do with your Dropbox folder.

I might be able to tell more about what's going on if you click the "Details" button in the popup error message and copy all the details here.

Excuse me for a long paste error message. I try your suggestion but nothing except this message (its a details, I can't copy a picture here) was happened.

By the way, when I opened a new NodeXl file everything is OK. But it's boring to write again all nodes and edges.

Thanks for posting the details. It looks as if your workbooks were created with a version of NodeXL much older than 1.0.1.229. The NodeXL workbook format has changed since then, and newer versions of NodeXL can't open workbooks that old.

Please try converting one of the workbooks to the latest format using NodeXL, Data, Import, From NodeXL Workbook Created on Another Computer.
