What do you mean by “a downloadable book”?

Our books are actually Windows help files just like you would see if you pressed F1 for help. When you purchase a book you download the installation file which installs the help files. You can browse through the books by clicking from chapter to chapter or topic to topic. You can also use the search button and then either the Search or Find option to find a topic of interest. The Find option is extremely powerful and is just like the index at the back of a book.

Are your add-ins COM add-ins or VBA add-ins?

All of our Microsoft Excel add-ins are written in C Sharp (C#) and are COM add-ins.

How complex is it to install the software?

The installation is very easy and simple. All of our installation programs are fully automated.

No, the help files are totally compatible with all versions of Windows. You just run the installation program which copies the files to your machine.
