I am trying to add the Data Streamer Add In using Excel 2016. I could add it last year through the educationworkshop.azure site but it is no longer available. I even reinstalled Excel 2016 in hopes it would just be part of it but no luck. I also tried installing 2019 version. 

Does anyone know how I can get it? We are trying to use Hacking Stem Astro Sock Kits we purchased through Carolina in February 2020. The Company said it's a Microsoft issue but I've had no luck. Any ideas, we are trying to collect live data?

I have exactly same problem

@emerickt 

Data Streamer is available for free to all Microsoft 365 subscribers

If you are a Microsoft 365 subscriber, make sure you have the latest version of Office.

If you don't see an entry for the Data Streamer add-in in the COM Add-Ins dialog box, it's because either your version of Office or Excel doesn't include it, or your organization's system administrator has made it unavailable.

Hope I was able to help you with this info.

I know I don't know anything (Socrates)

But how do I know what version of office includes it? I have Office Professional Plus 2016 and in 2019 I was able to install Data-Streamer for that version of office. Why not now anymore?
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/148410/data-streamer-for-excel-download.html

I think that you will find a solution in this link with great certainty.

Thank you for your understanding and patience

No solution, still the problem remains, I can't install it to my office professional plus 2016. It worked back in year 2019, why not now

Downloading Data-Streamer

 

How to Download

Data-Streamer is a completely free software add-in hosted by the Microsoft Garage. To get Data-Streamer on your computer, you must request access using the link below. The instructions for installing Data-Streamer will be emailed to you once your request is processed.
 
Request Data-Streamer
 
Note: To use Data-Streamer, you must be running a PC with Windows 10 and Microsoft Excel 2016 (desktop version).

 

Nowhere I can find that it is not possible with Excel 2016.

Did you download the Microsoft Date streamer add-in directly?

or just your purchased data streamer? I

nstalled? ... the Microsoft data streamer add-in. What message did the system send?

In my opinion (... even if this does not count, because I know that I do not know anything)

the problem is not in Excel 2016,

 

Thank you for your patience and time.

well I have seen that post but Request Data-Streamer link sends me on that page: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/education/hackingstem/datastreamer and there is no "button" to request Data-Streamer

Don't want to take up your time so much.

 

my last info:

So far i see in the Inernet site of Carolina is not posible to work with Excel 2016.

You say that data streamer does not work with excel professional plus 2016?

@-scien- 

So far i see in the Carolina® Astro Socks Kit Web Page is posible only with O365.

As I have already told you, I am not the specialist who knows this thing best.

As far as I could research, however, it is not possible.

Check out the Carolina's home page for yourself.

 

I hope that someone else will contact you and confirm this or why not refute this and give you a suggested solution "how to do it".

 

Thank you for your understanding and patience

one more thing, I discovered that there is Data-Streamer folder on my computer (under office folder) C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\ADDINS\EduWorks Data Streamer Add-In. why this addin does not appear on excel addons list?

@-scien- 

The problem isn't in Office. Your Hacking Stem Astro Sock Kit - Carolina only works in O365, not Office 2016.

Did you click on any of the links I sent you?

With your permission, I encourage you to read the links on Carolina.

 

Thank you for your patience and understanding

I knew that I know nothing, now I do not know even that.
