The basic steps are:
• Download the zip file to C:\installs\AMLExcel then unzip it. Click on each file, go to properties, and if necessary unblock it.
• Run these steps from an elevated (administrator) cmd prompt (your directory and version may differ):
cd \Windows\Microsoft.Net\Framework64\v4.0.30319
RegAsm.exe /codebase C:\installs\AMLExcel\Release\AzureMLPrediction.dll
Note that with 32-bit office the directory would be \Windows\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v4.0.30319
• In Excel, go to File.Options.Add-Ins. Click on Excel Add-Ins then on the Automation button. Choose AzureMLPrediction.AzureMLPredict. Then in the Add-In window choose AzureMLPrediction.AzureMLPredict.
