Title: Live Link to Excel (downloaded directly in Windows App Store/for Windows 10 S)
Post by: pbeilschmidt on April 12, 2018, 10:47 AM
Please note that the Live Link to Microsoft Excel does not work properly with the Excel version intended for Windows Surface computers running Windows 10 S and directly downloaded through the Windows App Store.

The reason is that this Office version from the Windows Store only installs 32-bit versions of Office, and - more importantly - the COM add-ins are not supported.

The Live Link works fine with Excel as a Desktop App being sold e.g. as part of an Office 365 subscription.

More information on this version can be found here (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/FAQ-Office-on-Windows-10-S-717193b5-ff9f-4388-84c0-277ddf07fe3f)
