Installing the Analytic Solver Platform which includes Data Mining should be done post registration at:
Your Professor will need to assign you a course and book code. If you don’t know the course and book code to register with then you’ll need to first reach out to them for these codes to register. Please be aware that our Analytic Solver Platform only works on Windows operating systems. It does NOT work on Macs. If you have a virtual machine running on your Mac which is running Windows then you can install this within that Windows Virtual machine.
If this registration fails such as it reports an incorrect Course or Book code, then you’ll need to ask your Professor FIRST, to clarify what the correct codes are and if they’ve even registered their course with us.
When successfully registered, you’ll be able to log in to www.analyticsolver.com. Once logged in you should see a Download Analytic Solver button near the top right of the page just to the left of your registered email address:
Clicking the Download Analytic Solver button will take you to the download page, use the Download Now button to download your SolverSetup program:
The download/setup will typically go to your Downloads folder. NOTE: Your own SolverSetup program will have different "trailing numbers"
Double click/Run the Setup to start the installation. Please note that it takes some time to run this (5-10 minutes). The setup is downloading/extracting the full program on the internet, so it can take some time for this process to complete. DO NOT run the setup more than once or it will stall the initial setup and the installation will fail. If you accidentally do run this more than once, reboot your machine and run it again (just once).
From here, proceed with the installation with ‘Next’ and Agreement confirmation.
After successful installation of the Analytic Solver Platform you should see the tabs listed within Excel along with a task pane on the right to enter the parameters for your Optimization/Simulation or Data-Mining projects and assignments.
If for some reason the Analytic Solver and/or Data Mining tabs are missing, please follow the instructions available here.
