V3 Addin Installation
The connection between SAP and the Promenta Excel Add-in requires that the SAP connection parameters are configured in the ini file mentioned below. As such a correct ini file for your system must be available before you install the Excel Addin so that it can be provided to the Installer.
The installation uses an installer program to install the Add-in to your system. Ensure you have a valid ini file set up for your SAP systems before you start the installation
Step 1 : Download the installer
Click here to download the latest installer – it will be at the top of the list. You may also see older installers present which may be there for historic reasons but you should only install these if explicitly told to do so.
Step 2 : Unzip the installer file (if it is zipped)
Step 3 : Execute the installer file
NOTE : If excel is open already the installer will ask you to save your work and close excel.
if you see the message below it means you are actually UPGRADING the installer.
The message is telling you that it found a previous ini file containing your connection settings for SAP. You should answer “No” as you do not want to replace the ini file UNLESS you have been told explicitly to do that.
Enter the password to continue the installation. Promenta or your own PC support/helpdesk teams will provide you will the password.
Locate the ini file supplied to you and enter the location in the screen below
Allow the installer to register the addin. You should never uncheck this unless you have been told to do so.
The addin will now run the installation and should successfully complete.
