Dowloading problems

Jan 17, 2014 at 10:33 AM

Since two days i'am trying to download NodeXL and Social Importer for NodeXL. Although i follow the procedure as described on the site, on the Import/Data i cant find the social importer. Can somebody help me?
Just for your information i first download NodeXL, and then socialimporter (the most recent programmes). Is there anything else i should download?

Thanx a lot

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL!

First, please download the current latest version of NodeXL, version 251, which updated this week in response to a breaking change in the Twitter API.

Second, the add-in importers for NodeXL should be downloaded, unzipped and the files copied to the "Plugins" directory in the NodeXL folder. On my system that folder is located on the path:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Social Media Research Foundation\NodeXL Excel Template\PlugIns

If you then restart NodeXL, these importers will appear in the NodeXL>Data>Import menu.

You can find links to the 3rd party importers for Wikis, Blogs, the WWW, Facebook, and Exchange email servers here:
