    I am trying to disable or delete an Add-in and I did as you instructed: I went to the COM Add-in window, but it is blank. The issue still persists. My PC is 64bit and the message that comes up when I access Excel tells me that there is a Compile error: “The code in this project must be updated for 64-bit systems. Please review and update Declare statements and then mark them with the PtrSafe attribute”. Sounds absolute French to me. Are you able to help me? I’d really appreciate the help

    That was directions to disable an add in, not to remove an add in.
