Please follow the steps below to ensure successful installation of the XLMiner software.
If you have a Mac – the installation-based Analytic Solver Platform software is only available for PC (sorry!). However, they have a cloud-based solution at www.AnalyticSolver.com/student that you can register for and use. Using AnalyticSolver.com is just like using a Google doc – you need internet access and the files live and breathe in the cloud, as it were. Everything you need for your course should be accessible there: just make sure you’re using a Chrome browser and that the files you’re uploading are saved as xlsx.
Use SPTSF3 for the Textbook Code and LOGM630BB17F for the Course Code. I suggest you copy and paste these two values and ensure you do not reverse them.
Check the box to acknowledge that you accept the Frontline Systems license agreement. Note: Frontline receives no money from you, or the textbook publisher, or the university; this free 140-day license is a courtesy they offer to students.
Click the button Proceed. If you just plan on accessing the cloud-based software, you’re done! Just click the get started button.
If you have problems, the best avenues to get help are to email email@example.com (this creates a support ticket in Frontline’s Help Desk) or start a Live Chat from any page on www.solver.com, or from within Excel (Help – Support Live Chat).
