Install Error

Aug 23, 2014 at 6:58 PM
I'm installing for the first time on Excel 2013.

The value of the property 'type' cannot be parsed. Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Office.BusinessApplications.Fba,Version=14.0.0.0,Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=... or one of it's dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. (c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VSTO\10.0\VSTOInstaller.exeConfig line 10)

Any thoughts on how to solve this problem?

This thread is related to your issue: https://nodexl.codeplex.com/discussions/544279

Please try this:

In Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft shared\VSTO\10.0.

In that folder, you should find a file named VSTOInstaller.exe.config. Rename it to VSTOInstaller.exe.config.old. (Ignore the warning from Windows about the file becoming unusable.)

Run NodeXLExcelTemplate2014Setup.exe again.

Does that fix it?

I initially struck the same error as hchandler. I was able to get it working by following MarcSmith's instructions above, with one variation. On my machine I navigated to the folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft shared\VSTO\10.0

I suspect this is due to me having Excel 32-bit installed.

Right-clicking on NodeXLExcelTemplate2014Setup.exe and selecting "Run as Administrator" did the trick for me.
