Installing Anaconda Toolbox#

  1. Open the manifest file in a browser.
  2. Right-click in the body of the file and select Save As… from the dropdown. Save the file in a new folder.


    Do not use keybindings to select, copy, and save the file text. This will erroneously copy plain text outside of the code as well, leading to installation issues.

  3. Right-click the folder containing the saved copy of your manifest file. From the dropdown, Select Give access to > Specific people….

  4. Select your name from the table, then click Share.


    You might be prompted to turn on network discovery and file sharing for all public networks. If so, you can select Yes, No, or simply click Cancel. Your decision does not affect installation.

  5. On the success page, click the in-line copy link to copy the file path for the manifest file to your clipboard, then click Done.

  6. Open Excel. From the File tab, click Options, then Trust Center, and then click Trust Center Settings….

  7. Go to Trusted Add-in Catalogs, then paste the file path in the Catalog Url cell.

  8. Delete the word(s) before the parentheses—as well as the parentheses themselves—from the file path.

  9. Click Add catalog.

  10. In the table, select the checkbox in the Show in Menu column, then click OK.

  11. Close and reopen Excel for your changes to take effect.
