Details of Installed Program Files

This page is not intended to be a definitive list of all files added or updated by the installation programs, but just details of some the key files required.

Note: The installation directory defaults to C:\Program Files\Codis Excelerator\Excelerators (or C:\Program Files (x86) for 64-bit operating systems).

Users may change the installation folder when installing the CoreComponents.  The module installation(s) files will be installed in this folder.


The adxloader.dll is registered as an Addin during the installation, so should run when Excel is loaded.  It reads from the adxloader.dll.manifest from its own directory to determine which bootstraps to load. This should only ever load the Codis.Excelerator.Standard.SharedAddin.dll assembly bootstrap.

The manifest file also includes an option to turn logging on or off.  <loaderSettings generateLogFile="true" />.   The log is named adxloader.log and is in <My Documents>\Add-in Express. This log only includes information about the adxloader and the bootstrap loading. 


This is the Codis.Excelerator.Standard.SharedAdd.dll assembly.  This assembly controls the loaded modules for all the Excelerator product suites.  

Its logging configuration is in the app.config file in the installation directory, and is log4net configuration.  By default logging is activated and logs to the XMLExcelerator.log file in C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Codis\Excelerator, in a formatted XML format.

This log is best viewed using the Log Viewer program.  This can be run either from the Excelerator menu in Windows or the Excelerator menu in Excel.  (Note: the latter may not be available if the Excel ribbon fails to load).

This will read files from the installation directory.
