Loading Other DecisionTools Suite Add-ins

A new menu item in the Utilities menu allows you to load other Palisade DecisionTools products from within StatTools.

StatTools Now Appears in Excel's Add-in List

You have always been allowed to add StatTools add-in (StatTools.xla) to the Excel add-ins list so it will automatically load every time Excel starts.  However, this process was difficult because it required you to browse for the correct file.  Now, StatTools will automatically appear in the add-ins list (unchecked) the first time you launch it, making it easier to access.

Language Switching Does Not Require Administrator Permissions

If you have installed more than one language version of StatTools on a machine, you can now switch the active language (via the Application Settings) even if you do not have administrator rights.
