Bloomberg Excel plug-in does not install by default and it is tied to individual account. You can trigger the installation by using the following steps:

-From Windows button, look for "Bloomberg" > "API Environment Diagnostics", OR
-Look for "API Environment Diagnostics" icon on the Windows desktop, OR
-Look for "Bloomberg" folder on the Windows desktop, then double click on "API Environment Diagnostics"
-Once "API Environment Diagnostics" is launched, click "Start" to begin
-After the diagnostics is completed, click "Repair"
-When the "Repair" is done, check the result under "Bloomberg Excel Addin". You should see green tick. If it doesn't, please make sure all Microsoft products are closed. Then repeat last three steps again. If the red crosses are still showing, try another terminal and report the issue to
