    Can we soon expect 64bit version?


    Excellent add-in!

    Thank you.

    I have Win 7 x64 and the addin works fine. What problems are you experiencing
    and what OS are you using?

    I have Win 7 x64 also.

    But I also have Excel x64. Maybe that is the problem?

    I'm sorry I have not described the problem.

    The problem is that add-in does not work at all (there is no new toolbar) on
    my home PC where I have Excel x64, but works like a charm on my laptop where I
    have Excel x32.

    Probably the addin is not being installed in the correct folder.

    To get around UAC problems, I have started creating a separate folder to my
    addins, then setting Excel to use it. Create a folder somewhere. Find
    Spreadsheet Compare.xlam and copy it to the new folder. Go into Excel and
    'Options>Advanced>General>At startup...' and put in your folder location.

    See if this helps.

    If I do that I am getting this error:

    Try changing the ...32.dlls to 64s. Unfortunatly you appear to be the only
    person with Excel 64, so we are in new territory.

    Can you please explain how you solved the problem? I have Excel 2010 x64 too, and the Add-ins tab does not compare after installing SpreadSheet Compare. Is there something I can try? :)

      I believe that the original issue was closed by a previous version of the add-in.

      If this is a different issue, then please raise a new case.

    I'm now forced to use Excel 64bit for performance reasons. This app has been very useful to me, but it doesn't seem to be compatible with 64bit Excel - is this the case, or am I experience errors for other reasons? If the latter, I will post more details to try and resolve.

      There will be some incompatablities, mostly with the controls I think, however I think they are workable. I don't have Office 64, so I cannot give detailed instructions. Those that have got it to work have not provided the workaround. If you post the errors, then we can work through them.
