Installing 32 bit or 64 bit SigmaXL

on October 15, 2014

Do I need SigmaXL 32 bit or 64 bit?

There are two versions of SigmaXL for Windows: 32-bit and 64-bit.

The 64-bit version of SigmaXL is only required by those users who have Office 2010 or 2013 64 bit.  It is important to note that the version of Windows is irrelevant, as it is possible to be using a 64-bit version of Windows with a 32-bit version of Office.

All other users should use the 32 bit version of SigmaXL.

To determine which version of Office 2010 you have, please see the image below.

To determine which version of Office 2013 you have, please see the image below.


In both situations above, a user would download the 32-bit version of SigmaXL, available at the link below:

However, if you have Office 2010 or 2013 64-bit, please download SigmaXL from the link below:

If you install a version of SigmaXL that is incompatible with your Office 2010/2013 bit-type, you will see a notification window instructing you to contact support@sigmaxl.com to request the correct version.

Please see the screenshot below.

You may also encounter the error below if you install the incorrect version of SigmaXL.


This error can easily be resolved by uninstalling SigmaXL, and re-installing the version appropriate for your Office platform.

If you are having difficulty determining the bit-type of your Office 2010/2013, or replacing the version of SigmaXL currently installed on your system, please contact support@sigmaxl.com.
