If you fail to accept the terms, the software will not be installed on your computer.
You will be asked to select the destination location for the software (if this is the first time you are performing the install). The default location is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Sigma Magic". You can accept the default or change the destination folder. If you do change the install location, please make a note of this directory for future reference. Click on Next to continue.
Finally, click on Install to proceed with the installation. If you receive any error message, then the installation did not proceed normally. The installer will check if you have a valid install of the Microsoft Excel software, and if it does not exist on your computer, then the installation will not be completed. If the installation proceeds normally, then you should see a message box as shown in the figure below.
This completes the installation of the software. If you encounter any problems, the setup will automatically
delete any temporary installation files and exit the installation.
Once the installation is completed, open Microsoft Excel, and you should see Sigma Magic software menus in Excel on the right-hand top corner
of the software menus.

This section contains some frequently asked questions. If you have other questions about this module, please contact technical support.
What is the size of the program?
The Add-In file is less than 200 KB in size. The Add-In file is intentionally kept small so that there is not much overhead when you do not use Sigma Magic software. The software (roughly 8 MB) is loaded into memory only when you access Sigma Magic functions. Since the program is not loaded into memory by default, you may have a short wait to load the program into memory the first time you use Sigma Magic software.
Will the uninstall process delete the project files I created using this software?
No, Sigma Magic will only delete the installation files and update the Registry. It will not delete any of the files you may have created using this software.
What if I have an older version of the software installed on my system?
Sigma Magic will overwrite the software installation so that the older version will no longer work on your computer. If you want to revert to a previous version of Sigma Magic, you will need to save the setup file for that version and then run it again to reinstall the older version of the software..
Will the software work on Macintosh computers running Excel?
No, the software currently works only on Windows OS and does not run on Mac OS. You will need to use the dual boot option or a software such as Parallels Desktop (R) to be able to run a Windows OS on your MAC in order to use this software.
