install successful but tool doesnt show up (office 2010, win7 64)

I am trying to install Mysql for Excel 1.1. Installation from mysql installer reports no problems but Mysql button does not appear in excel on the "data" ribbon.

- I have Mysql for Excel in my Add/Remove programs
- I have files in program files(x86)\mysql\mysql for excel
- ODBC and everything installed and works fine

Where is the button? I went to the mysql for excel directory and tried running the file Mysql.ForExcel.vsto (the vsto deployment manifest file). This opens a program that says it is installing office addons. Looks promising but it fails halfway through with complaint that it can't download file:///C:\program files (x86)/mysql/mysql for excel 1.1.0/mysql.forexcel.dll.config

That file (.config) does not exist in my installation. Is it supposed to?

If I fake it so it goes further then it complains about something called resources/mysql-for-excel.ico. That file does not exist either in my installation. is it supposed to?


I would love (and need) to get this add-in running ASAP. Any help is greatly appreciated. thanks!
