RiskEase 1 makes use of Excel’s Solver add-in for some of its functions, such as fitting custom distributions to user data or performing simulations with optimization. For these functions to be available, the Solver add-in must be included in the selected components when you install Excel (or Microsoft Office). If you have not installed the Solver on your system, please run the Microsoft Office setup program again and select the option to install the Solver. For further details please consult Excel’s online help (Topic: “Install and load Solver”).

If you do not install the Solver then RiskEase will still run, but some functionality will not be available.
