Hi,

am i right, that it is only possible to get scExcel as a Student and not RExcel anymore?
I downloaded statconnDCOM with the help of the scExcelinstaller, but can i use this for RExcel as well?

When i want to run R with RExcel, i always get the Errormessage that "there seems to be no R process connected to Excel".

I hope that you can see my Problem with the help of this description.

Best regards,
Dario

Dear Dario,

if you are using the stripped-down version of statconnDCOM shipped with scExcel, you are definitely violating the software license for this product. This is definitely not recommended :-)

If you are meeting the requirements of the scExcel Home&Student license, you may use this version of scExcel freely.

You are not allowed to use the OEM version of statconnDCOM shipped with scExcel with any other software.

Is there any good reason you do not want to switch from RExcel to scExcel? Maybe you should post into the appropriate support forum if you need help or are experiencing problems.

Best regards,
Thomas

Dear Thomas,

thanks for that information! :)
I just wanted to start to work with RExcel, because i already read the book "R Through Excel" from Erich Neuwirth and I would have felt more comfortable to start with RExcel because of the well descripted examples in this book.

But to work with scExcel is fine for me as well and there was occuring no problem with the installation,yet. :)

Thanks for your support.

Best regards,
Dario
