Remove Redundant Add-In For Excel 2007

Some time I may require installing different kind of application to perform some testing and recently I have been assigned a task to run through the functionality test on the Add-In for Excel 2007.

The problem occurred after I uninstalled the Add-In because Excel keep on prompting me error each time I start Excel due to the incorrect path for the add-in. I have looked through some website and found the solution.

1. Open the Excel option page. (Excel Icon – Excel Options button at the bottom)

2. On the Excel option page, select Add-Ins from the left pane and then look for the add-in that causes an error.
Example : If the add-in type is “Excel Add-Ins”, then select the add-in type in the Manage drop down and click Go button.

3. On the popup window uncheck the Add-In you want to remove and click OK. (If that add-in is invalid, the add-in will automatically remove. However, if valid add-in Excel will disable it and you can enable it back anytime in future).
