    I’m trying to install XLLOOP but the zip file does not explain how-to (or I haven’t found it). I would like to use Python functions from within Excel.

    Is ther a tutorial, demo, youtube video or anything else on how to start? Maybe some examples with python as a Com server?

    Thank you

    The zip file contains an excel addin – you go to Tools->Addins->Browse in excel to add it.

    The server is run as a separate process. You should be able to run the server-example.py example in the download as long as you have a python interpreter on your machine.
