SaveAsDAISY is available for Windows only. We provide an unified installer that detects standard installations of Microsoft Office. If Office is not found by the installer (like preinstalled or windows store versions of MS Office), it will request which architecture (32bits or 64bits) you want the addin to be installed for.

Latest version: 2.7.2 beta (released on September, 2022)

Feedbacks / Known issues

Addin is reported unloaded due to an error

The addin assumes you have a recent version of .NET Framework (4+) available on your system. You can check if you have the required .NET Framework by checking if folders “C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319” and/or “C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319” exists.

If this is the case, please check your office bit-version in Word in the “Account” page by opening “About Word” dialog. The bit-version is displayed at the end of the first line of the dialog.
