Opening a File with DIAdem Excel Importer Opens Excel and Closes It Immediately

Updated Apr 8, 2021

Issue Details

I have a TDMS file that I want to open with DIAdem's Excel Importer, by right-clicking the file and choosing it with the 'Open With' option, after I do this Excel opens up but it immediately closes down again, why does this happen and how I do can I use this tool?

Solution

This behavior can be seen if the Excel Importer has not been registered as an Add-In for Excel, to register it you can follow the steps described in the following external document.
