Hi All,

There is some situations where you have to manually activate the Analysis for Office Add-In.

Situation #1:

You cannot find the Analysis Add-In tab in your MS Excel or MS Powerpoint.

Situation #2:

You try to launch Analysis for Office and you are getting some errors like the messages below:

  • “Unable to launch Analysis Add-in”
  • “The launcher was not able to connect Analysis Add-In. Make sure that Analysis Add-In is not disabled by Office Application”

In these cases, Analysis Add-In may have been disabled by the Microsoft application after some crash. So you have to re-enable the Analysis Add-In in MS Excel or MS PowerPoint. This is very simple to solve and this post will show you how to do it.

1 – Open Excel Options.

2 – Click on “Add-Ins” tab and select “Disabled Items” in Manage box. Then click “Go”.

3 – If the Analysis Office Add-In is listed here select it and click on Enable.

4 – If Analysis Add-In is not listed, like in the screenshot above, go back to Step #2 and select “COM AddIn” in the Manage box. Then click “Go”.

5 – Make sure to have the Analysis Add-In checked and click “Ok”
