Save this to a universally accessible location for all users.


Step 2: Create login script to automate install


Once you have saved the installer to a universally accessible location, run the following login script, substitute [MyPath] for the location you have saved the installer to:

"C:\[MyPath]\HowNow Smart Workpapers Setup.exe" /verysilent /preventdowngrade="true"


Excel requires that XLL Add-ins be registered on a per user basis.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Business Fitness\HowNow Smart Workpapers\adxregistrator.exe" /install="Workpapers.Next.Addin.dll" /privileges=user

In Excel - Select >File >Options >Add-ins. You should now see the following two components:
