I ran both BfX setup and setup.exe.
both had a simple menu- Repair BfX setup or Remove BfX setup. nothing about installation...

both ran successfully.
are there some files I can go look for to check if they were successful?

Paul,

I finished the following
1)took a windows xp machine who for the last time run in 2008. It never saw office before
2)did not do any updates.
3)installed excel2003
4)did not update excel2003
5)downloaded bfxsetup.zip
6)extracted the two files in there to the desktop (I do not run them from a zipped folder)
7)ran bfxsetup, typed only next next next
8)started excel2003
9)installed the addin
10)typed =bfx_help()
it worked
11)downloaded getting started
12)opened it in excel2003
13)typed ctrl-shift-alt-f9
and thousends of calculations ran in the wink of an eye.

I do have administrator rights.

There must be somethin wrong with your installation. Maybe you run the excel installation again, in the repair mode.
BfXsetup installs bfx.xll
The setup.exe installs
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Merge Modules\Microsoft_VC100_CRT_x86.msm
containing
Visual C++ 10.0 CRT (x86)

Paul, see if you have the following files somewhere:

Packaging file 'msvcr100.dll'...
Packaging file 'BfX.xll'...
Packaging file 'msvcp100.dll'...

Sorry,

the max I could do I did. Took a fresh XP machine, installed Office XP, then BfX fresh from the site, and it worked out of the box.\
