update my PC with excel vba RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have offline PC with no Internet and I need frequently installation of Operating System and MS Office, Hence frequent updating. I downloaded updates from Microsoft. I want them automatically update my PC. They are nearly 100 or more. I want them to update my PC without double clicking the update file every time and then clicking ok again and again. Can I do it with excel and with one time initiation ? or not possible ?

    Frequent installation of Windows and MS Office on the same computer is not normal.
    The "why" that is necessary should be fixed.

    As for downloading updates for Office...
    Most of them are security updates and if the machine is not connected to the internet they aren't really needed.
    You could install the latest Service Pack (SP) and not worry about the rest of them.

    There are methods of saving all updates to an external disk/drive and using that to update your system.
    That would be much faster, but I am not the one to provide help on that issue.
    Do a search.

    The Excel add-in files at (Dropbox)
    are .zip files, which are compressed files, that are unzipped by double-clicking them and following the instructions in the wizard that appears.
    The files found inside each .zip file are usually an .xla (add-in) file and a Word.doc read me file with instructions.

    An add-in file (.xla or .xlam) is not "opened" in the usually maner.  It is installed. 
    After installation, the file is accessed by clicking a menu item or, in some cases by right-clickiing a  worksheet cell and clicking the pop-up menu. 
    The included read me files provide basic instructions on installing an add-in.
    Jon Peltier has detailed instructions at his web site on installing add-ins:

    My .xla add-in files will work in any Excel version from xl97 thru xl2010.
    The add-in files have been programming to prevent their installation on xl2013 +.
    The workbooks offered should function in any Excel version.

  • Re:  What do these files do

    This is not the forum to extol the wonderful properties of my programs.
    Read the Word.doc Read Me files (some have pictures) and give the files a try.
    If you have a specific question about or a problem with one of the programs, then email me direct.
