mightymacros AddIn Installer

Automates and simplifies the installation and update process when installing VBA Excel Add-ins. The program eliminates the need of copying and pasting to the add-ins folder, checking, unchecking boxes and closing dialogs making the deployment of VBA Excel add-ins friendly and suitable for all. The program installs onto the end of the developer tab within Excel. The program loads a file picker for selecting the Add-in to install. If Excel has an existing older version of the same add-in installed, the program will automatically replace the old add-in file. The program will prompt for a response if the installed add-in has a later date, in order to prevent overwriting a newer version. 

Installs and updates both Excel .xla and .xlam add-ins
