*Excel must have been used at least once prior to installing Predixion Insight. On first use, Excel registers information that Predixion Insight uses during installation.

The computer on which you want to install the Predixion Insight Excel add-in, whether a cloud or on-premises deployment, can have only one version of Excel installed.
Excel from Microsoft Office Starter 2010 or Starter 2013 editions cannot be used with Predixion Insight because these Excel editions do not include all the features that Predixion Insight requires.
