During the installation of ChemOffice Ultra 5.0, I receive an error message indicating that Excel 97 was not detected on my system and that the ChemFinder Add-In for Excel would not be installed.
This warning message is accurate. If you have Excel 95 or Excel 2000 or above, the ChemOffice Ultra 5.0 installer will not install the ChemFinder for Excel Add-in. Please note that this does NOT mean that ChemFinder will not be installed or that ChemFinder will not work with Excel 95 or 2000. The following procedure may work for Excel 2000 users. It has never been tested nor is it supported for versions of Excel above 2000.
Download the following file:
After downloading the file, unzip it by double clicking the file. After the files unzip, view the unzipped ReadMe file for instructions on getting the ChemFinder for Excel Add-In installed.
The other option is to upgrade to the latest version of our software for Excel 2000/XP support.
