After installing visual studio premium 2012 I can no longer import/export test cases from/too spirateam using the excel importer/exporter addins

Thursday, August 15, 2013 4:29:35 PM

I have Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus.

For sometime I have successfully been using the Excel Add In for SpiraTeam to Import and Export Test Cases too and from SpiraTeam with no issues other than the occasional time out.

I have recently installed Microsoft Visual Studio Premium 2012.

Since doing this, I am unable to use the tool, in fact, The Add-Ins tab has since disappeared.  I have this configured to be displayed as its own tab in (Customize Ribbon within Excel Options)

Has this sort of thing been reported before, if so does anybody have any advice on how I may be able to rectify this?

On a machine without Visual Studio, I am still able to perform Imports/Exports to and from the spreadsheet.

Hi Rob

Do you see the Add-In listed under 'Disabled Add-Ins' in the MS-Excel Add-Ins section?

If not, please contact Inflectra support by logging a help desk request so that we can provide more personalized assistance.

Hi Adam,

Yes I can see that it is disabled in the Inactive Application Add-ins section with Excel Options.

However I am unsure how I should be enabling this, any advice on this will be gratefully received.
