What to do if the PythonForExcel ControlShell does not activate?


lose all instances of Excel and run installation program one more time.

If you do not see the ControlShell after pressing one of the key combinations <Alt>+<Shift>+<P>, <Alt>+<Shift>+<Q>, <Alt>+<Shift>+<Z> then the likely reason is the failure by the setup program to register the file c:\Program File\PythonForExcel\otsPythonForExcel.xla among Excel's addins. To overcome this problem on earlier versions of Excel you need to go to Tools/Add-ins/Browse... and navigate to the otsPythonForExcel.xla. After you check in the otsPythonForExcel.xla is should appear in the list as in the picture below.
