Install Xcelsius with Office 2010

Microsoft Office, SAP Crystal Presentation Design, Xcelsius

SAP Crystal Presentation Design XcelsiusXcelsius (now renamed SAP Crystal Presentation Design) is supported for use with Microsoft Office 2007.  Many users though, not knowing this, try installing Xcelsius on a machine that has Microsoft Office 2010 installed and are presented with an error message stating something like “Microsoft Office XP and later applications: Excel, Word, Outlook or PowerPoint must be pre-installed.”

While many sources will state that Xcelsius simply can’t be used with Microsoft Office 2010 – this isn’t actually true.  For a simple workaround for installing Xcelsius with Office 2010 visit this helpful blog post.
