If SeoTools isn’t working:

  • Makes sure you have the latest Microsoft .Net Framework installed on your computer. You need the "full" version.
  • Are you using the correct version? Check out if your copy of Excel is 32bit or 64bit.
  • Did you really unzip SeoTools.<version>.zip?
  • SeoTools.config.xml must be in the same directory as the XLL file. Also make sure it’s writable.
  • Restart you computer?

Ribbon (menu) not showing?

Go to Add-Ins under Options and select Manage COM Add-ins. Remove any SeoTools references and try installing SeoTools again.
