I have a licensed NodeXL pro. I need to download only Facebook posts for some fan page (eg I tried 165647486802817 between 21st April 2016 to 22nd April 2016) and its relevant comments (between some dates). I tried multiple times but (1) I am not sure if I am getting the required data (2) I am unable to find the emoticons (smilies) which are present in comments
Also, is there a way to download only those posts which have a minimum number of comments

Is there a way of installing NodeXL without it needing to connect to the interwebs? The network where I work is private and not connected. Cheers
