You can follow this quick guide on how to install XLSTAT on your Mac.

Here is a guide listing the requirements for XLSTAT to work properly on your Mac: Requirements for XLSTAT on Mac.
Double click on the DMG file you have downloaded from the Free trial page.
Read and accept the software license agreements so you can install XLSTAT.
A window with two icons will now appear. Drag the icon of XLSTAT and drop it onto the Applications icon. This will copy XLSTAT into your Applications folder.
You no longer need the DMG file, you can firstly eject the XLSTAT installation drive. To do so, right-click on the XLSTAT icon on your desktop and choose Eject XLSTAT
You can now move the XLSTAT.dmg file to your trash.
Launching XLSTAT for the first time
Once you installed XLSTAT, launch it by double clicking on it. For its first startup, XLSTAT will configure itself automatically, linking the application to Microsoft Excel. This can take up to a minute with Excel windows opening and closing. After that, XLSTAT will be all set.
You can add the XLSTAT icon to your Dock by simply dragging it from Applications to the lcoation you would like to place it to.
You can now start using XLSTAT by starting its trial period or by activating it using your license key. This is described in this guide: Activate your license on Mac.
If you encounter an error, depending on the message that is shown, please make sure that:
- You have at least one compatible version of Excel installed (2011 or 2016) and up-to-date,
- No previous version of XLSTAT is installed on your Mac (if so, please remove it using its uninstaller),
- If using Excel 2011, the Visual Basic for Applications extension is installed along with it,
- You are using Mac OS X 10.6.8 at least.
In order to update XLSTAT to a more recent version, double-click on the XLSTAT DMG file you just downloaded.
Simply drag and drop the XLSTAT icon to your Applications folder. Accept when asked to confirm the replacement.
Once replaced, make sure to launch XLSTAT through its icon in your Applications folder or in your Dock, if you added XLSTAT to it. This is important as it will allow XLSTAT to update itself, linking its updated elements to Microsoft Excel. Do not use the Excel toolbar shortcuts to launch XLSTAT after replacing it with a more recent version.
After this, XLSTAT will be up-to-date and startable once again from your usual shortcut.
