Real Statistics with 64 bit Excel

While most people use the 32 bit version of Excel, there is an important community of users of the 64 bit version of Excel. A number of people have asked the question as to whether the Real Statistics Resource Pack works with the 64 bit version of Excel.

The following is an answer to this question based on the experiences of Paolo Piva, who is using the Real Statistics Resource Pack in Windows 10 (64 bit) using the 64 bit version of Excel 2016.

“I confirm that I use it under Windows 10 Pro 64 bits and that I installed it on Excel 64 bits, as part of Office 365 (which is Excel 2016).”

Paolo noted further that “when I closed Excel and then launched it again, the add-in menu with Real Statistics did not show up in the ribbon… I had therefore to implement the suggestion Unblock the Add-in File as described in:

Paolo added “just to make sure that things work properly and the Addins menu is displayed Excel must be run as an Administrator.  If it is not run as an Administrator the Addins menu will not be displayed but still the Real Statistics package will work and can be accessed with the usual “Command M”

I assume here that Paolo means the Ctrl-m key sequence.
