Installing the CRE Suite Excel Add-In for Mac Users

The installation video above of the CRE Suite from scratch for Mac Users follows these 4 critical stages:

  1. Installing Parallels
  2. Installing Windows into Parallels
  3. Installing Microsoft Office / Excel
  4. Installing the CRE Suite

With Parallels 16, the process to make sure that windows is installed properly is much smoother and you will be prompted at the end of your parallels install whereas before it was a more tedious and manual process.

Common errors include not installing office into the Windows Virtual Machine from Parallels and not fully restarting Excel if it was opened prior to the install of the CRE Suite.
