Supported MS Office ver. in IGSS v9.0 and 10 for Reports

FAQ Question

IGSS version 9.0 and 10 supports both 32-bit office versions of Microsoft Office (Office 2007 and Office 2010) for creating and editing reports in IGSS.

IGSS V10 supports Office 2013 See below.

IGSS Version 9.0 does not support earlier versions of Microsoft office (for example Office 2003) or the 64-bit office versions. If you use these office versions, you will not be able to create IGSS reports.

Additionally, the Microsoft Office suite should be installed prior to installing IGSS.

If you install Microsoft Office after you have installed IGSS, you must run the RMS.VSTO file from the GSS folder in the IGSS install folder – the default install folder for IGSS is C:\Program Files\7T\IGSS32\V9.0\GSS\rms.vsto


IGSS 10 and Microsoft Office 2013
Microsoft has released a new Office Suite in 2013, called Microsoft Office 2013 following the naming tradition of Microsoft software. IGSS supports Microsoft Office 2013, but not directly when installing IGSS. This is because the IGSS installation procedure only recognizes Microsoft Office 2007 and Microsoft Office 2010 and not Microsoft Office 2013. IGSS does not support any version of Microsoft Office Suite that runs 64-bit.
You can use the Microsoft Excel application in Microsoft Office 2013 to create and run Custom Reports as well as Standard and Operator reports (for IGSS 10) just like Office 2007 or Office 2010, but you must first follow a few set up steps.

If you want to use Microsoft Office 2013 you must do the following:
