Excel-DNA version 1.1 is now available on NuGet and as a direct download from GitHub. The easiest way to install is with Visual Studio’s NuGet package manager (package ExcelDna.AddIn) – a ‘ReadMe’ file with further instructions will then be displayed. From the Package Manager Console:
Excel-DNA 1.1 is expected to be the final version to support older .NET (< 4.5) and Excel (< 2007) releases.
Excel-DNA version 1.1 implements workarounds for two recent changes in Excel behaviour:
- RTD servers based on ExcelRtdServer, and streaming functions based on IExcelObservable stopped updating after recent (early 2020) Excel updates.
- When loaded into an elevated Excel process (running As Administrator) the on-demand COM registration (used for ribbon and CTP loading) started failing (mid 2020).
The update also introduces strong-naming of the Excel-DNA assemblies (thanks to @augustoproiete)
