## ERROR: C:\Windows\System32\SGXLADDIN.DLL could not be found.

This error occurs when you launch **Microsoft Excel 2007, 2003 or 2002** following the installation and subsequent **uninstallation** of a **Sage** product such as **Sage Line 50 Accounts** & **Sage Instant Accounts**.

When a number of **Sage** products are installed they also install a **Microsoft Office Addin** file called **SGXLADDIN.DLL** which provides integration between **Microsoft Excel** and the **Sage** product however when uninstalling certain **Sage** products the addin reference is left inside **Excel** but the file is removed, hence the error.

Luckily, this one is very simple to fix. Read on.

## Solution 1: Microsoft Office 2007 Users:

- Open
**Microsoft Excel** - Click the
**Microsoft Office button**(that’s the large ugly button in the top left hand corner) - Click
**Excel Options**button at the bottom right of the menu - Click
**Add-ins**in the left hand navigator - Now in the right hand pane, click the
**Manage Add-ins**button at the bottom – the**Add-ins**dialog should appear. - Clear the checkbox next to the add-in that reads
**SGXLADDIN.DLL** - Click
**OK**and restart**Excel**

## Solution 2: Microsoft Office 2003 & lower Users:

- Open
**Microsoft Excel** - Click
**Tools**>**Add-ins…** - Clear the checkbox next to the add-in that reads
**SGXLADDIN.DLL** - Click
**OK**and restart**Excel**

Many thanks for this. We are using 2010 so a bit more difficult to find but it has worked.
