Hi NodeXL team,
My laptop broke down and meanwhile, I have installed NodeXL in another computer. However, I cannot run the program properly. Furthermore, I cannot even open my NodeXL files from previous imports.
If I try to open NodeXL, the following message appears:

Excel has found content that cannot be read in 'NodeXLGraph.xltx'. Would you like to recover the workbook content? If you trust this workbook's origen click yes.

Once I click yes, Excel opens but without the NodeXL extension. And the programs shows the following message:

Excel was able to open the file by repairing or removing the unreadable content.

Part removed: /xl/comments1.xml part with XML error. (Comments) Load error. Line 2, column 222.
Part removed: /xl/comments2.xml part with XML error. (Comments) Load error. Line 2, column 222.
Part removed: /xl/comments3.xml part with XML error. (Comments) Load error. Line 2, column 198.
Part removed: /xl/comments4.xml part with XML error. (Comments) Load error. Line 2, column 198.
Part removed: /xl/comments5.xml part with XML error. (Comments) Load error. Line 2, column 177.

On the other hand, if I try to open any NodeXL file that I have saved while I was using the other laptop, I get this message:

object reference not set to an object instance

I did not have any problem when I installed NodeXL in the first laptop. The only difference I can imagine so far is that I am running Excel 2007 and previously I had Excel 2010.

Thank you very much.

Kind regards,
Jose.

Hello,

form the error message it looks like NodeXL can not access the license file. Please check if the license file is read-only (right-click -> Properties unchecked "Read-only" checkbox). If that is not the case, please try moving your license file somewhere which does not contain OS-sensitive data (you can use Downloads, Documents, or D: drive).

Regards,
Arber

Hi arber,

After a couple of days, I have solved the issue.
Firs of all, I upgraded Microsoft Excel to the 2010 version. Secondly, I re-downloaded the license from the email sent by the Social Media Research Foundation and copied it in a new folder in my desktop.
NodeXL works perfectly fine now.

Thanks for your help!

Jose.
