    Does not appear on the Excel ribbon – Excel 2019

    After installing, does not appear on/in the Excel ribbon or menus. Is not included in any Add-On / Add-In manager in Excel. Conclusion: USELESS!

    I’m having the same problem as those above with it NOT being on the Excel ribbon and NOT in the list of Add-Ins.
    BTW…I run different versions of Excel and I am wondering if you have this for Excel 2007.
    I also run later verisons, but am just wondering.

    Installed slowly, but OK, in both Excel 2010 and 2019 versions.
    Note that the initial installation does show as “trial”.

    Validating the license did take 2 tries.
    Closing and restarting Excel confirmed the change to full version.

    Hi Nicholas Hebb from BreezeTree here.

    If the FlowBreeze ribbon tab does not load, I recommend that you uninstall it, go to the downloads page on the breezetree.com website, and then download and install the Admin version. Historically, this has resolved the vast majority of reported loading issues.

    The difference: The default setup file installs the add-in to your AppData folder, which is Microsoft’s recommendation, and runs only for the user profile that ran the setup. The Admin setup installs to the Program Files directory, and runs for all user profiles on the system. As the name implies, running the admin setup requires admin privileges on the system.

    To be honest, I am not totally sure why the admin version resolves the loading issue, but I suspect that it has something to do with the security settings on the system blocking add-ins loading from AppData – whether that be IT policy or antivirus software settings.

    [@Nicholas Hebb] Oh, one more thing – the admin version will accept the license key for the Shareware On Sale giveaway.

    I’ve tried installing the program twice. The Registration Key will NOT work!

    As Barry pointed out: Validating the license did take 2 tries. Closing and restarting Excel confirmed the change to full version.

    After reading his post, I reopened and tried the Registration Key again. The second time it accepted the Key. I closed and reopened Excel and the program is now registered.

    Obviously, the Registration needs to be fixed so you don’t get an error the first time you try the key. I installed the program on a second computer and got the same result. The first time I click to register the key I got the error. Clicked on it a second time and it worked!

    [@Xerum] Did not ask for unlocking product key, did not appear in Excel 2019 – is it compatible with that? Trying a restart, to see if reg entries need to be reloaded.

    Same problem as with other “users” – no Tab shows in Excel. Thanks for posting likely solution: will give it a trr.

    Downloading & installing the “Admin” version of FlowBreeze (after uninstalling existing version) DID add the FlowBreeze tab to the Excel menu.
    As with other users, it took 2 tries to validate the License Key: 1st attempt stated “Not valid for this version” – but 2nd attempt returned “You have successfully registered…”.

    And, again, as others have noted, had to Close & Reopen Excel to get the “(Trial)” notice removed.

    Now just need a likely use for the add-in….

    OK – deleted Giveaway version, downloaded V4 administrative version(as I have EXCEL 2007) and installed – great – appeared in the ribbon. However, the program says that the giveaway key is not a valid license.

    Please advise and thank you.
