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?
