Cannot see NodeXL Exchange Spigot as importer

Nov 4, 2014 at 1:24 PM
I have excel 2013. Installation instructions says " Download, unzip and copy the dlls to the NodeXL Add-ins directory: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Social Media Research Foundation\NodeXL Excel Template\PlugIns""
I don't have this folder. All I have is "NodeXLGraph.xltx" tucked away somewhere when I installed NodeXL for the first time. Incidentally, I had to search the entire disk to find this template!
Even if I create this folder manually and place those two "dlls" from the zip file there, I still can not see this option from the list of importers in NodeXL. Is there more to it than what I just mentioned?

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL!

You may place the add-in files in any directory. Tell NodeXL where these files are via the NodeXL>Data>Import>Import Options dialog.

There is a place for you to paste the path to the folder in that dialog box.

Then close NodeXL and reopen it: the new importers should appear in the NodeXL>Data>Import menu.
