COM Add-in helper could not be registered

"The Ribbon/COM Add-in helper required by add-in SeoTools could not be registered"

This sometimes happens when SeoTools is put in some kind of Error state by Excel.

Under Add-Ins and "Manage: Disabled Items", see if SeoTools is listed here and if so "Enable".

If this doesn't work try this trick to reset Excel:

(only do this yourself if you know what you're doing)

Open the registry and delete these folders:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Excel 
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Excel 

Where you replace 14.0 with your Excel version.

Then restart your computer and try to install SeoTools again.
