Peltier Tech Charts for Excel 3.0 - Documentation

Installing the Utility

Peltier Tech Charts for Excel is a standard Excel add-in, so it is installed following the standard add-in installation protocol. This protocol differs slightly among Excel versions.

1. Distribution Package

Peltier Tech Charts for Excel is distributed in a zip file, PeltierTechCharts30A.zip or PeltierTechCharts30B.zip, which contains:

2. Add-In Directory

Create a new directory for which you have read and write access permissions.

In Windows, the most convenient location is the User Add-In Library:

    C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\AddIns

where USERNAME is the name of your Windows account, or

    %appdata%\Microsoft\AddIns

Any add-in stored in the User Add-In Library directory will automatically appear in the Add-Ins dialog without having to install it first, eliminating the need to browse to find it during installation. Also, the User Add-In Library directory can be made into a Trusted Location using the following protocol. Once the User Add-In Library is a Trusted Location, any add-ins can be installed from this location without having to be unblocked.

You may instead use any convenient folder for which you have read and write access permissions, such as

    C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\Peltier Tech

or

    C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Peltier Tech

On the Mac, there is no User Library, so use a convenient folder location like

    HD:Users:USERNAME:Documents:Peltier Tech

Unzip the files into this new folder.

3. Unblock the Add-In Workbook (Windows)

A Microsoft Windows Update for July 2016 causes Excel 2010, 2013, and 2016 to block files created on another computer. The add-in will load successfully when it is installed, but when Excel is later restarted, it will not load the blocked file.

Unblock Add-In Workbook

Remember, if you receive an updated add-in workbook, you must unblock the updated workbook before it will open.

4. Installing in Excel for Windows

Use the following protocol to install the add-in in Excel 2007 or later:

In Excel 2010 or later, if the Developer tab is visible, the protocol is even easier:
