88 Tool Installation Note: Microsoft Office 2010 or newer is required on each computer that uses the tool. The tool uses Microsoft Excel and contains 45 files, includ- ing separate linked spreadsheets for the 40 equipment classes listed in the guide. Follow the steps below and reference the accompanying screenshots to ensure maintaining the links between the spread sheets when installing the tool. These links are critical for the tool to function correctly. Step 1. Locate the File The tool may be available as a download or on a storage device such as a CD or thumb drive. Locate the file named âEquipment Optimization Tool Installation.exeâ on the computerâs desktop, default download folder, or storage device, as shown in Figure 1. Double-click on the file. Step 2. Begin the Installation If a Windows User Account Control message asking if you want to allow the program to make changes to the computer appears on the screen (Figure 2), click on Yes. Step 3. Complete the Installation When the installation window appears (Figure 3), click on Install to install the tool onto the computer. C H A P T E R 2 Step 4. Extract the Files After clicking on Install, the toolâs installer will begin extracting all of the necessary spreadsheets onto the correct location on the computer. The tool is automatically installed to C:\Equipment Replacement Optimization Tool/. Note: This exact file location is required for the tool to work correctly. No user interaction is needed during this step. Once file extraction is complete, the installer will indicate that setup has finished installing the Equipment Replacement Optimization Tool on the computer. Click on Finish to com- plete the installation (Figure 4). Step 5. Verify the Files Were Copied to the Correct Location Double-click on the C: drive and find the folder named âEquipment Replacement Optimization Tool.â Double- click on the folder to see the list of linked Excel files inside it, as shown in Figure 5. Note: Do not change the spreadsheet names, as this will break the links between them. The tool is now loaded onto the computer and is ready for setup.
