  2. Register the BREWMPStringLocalizationLibrary.dll by running the following command in the command prompt:

    C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\RegAsm.exe BREWMPStringLocalizationLibrary.dll

  3. You can install the Add-in using either of the following two methods:
    • Within File Explorer navigate to the \bin\ folder and double-click on BREWMPLocalizationExcelAddin.vsto to install the Excel Add-in.
    • From a command-prompt, enter the following command:
