If you don't use the TextBridge Instant Access feature in Excel, you can work around this problem by following these steps:
  1. Quit Excel.
  2. Click Start, point to Programs, and then click TextBridge Pro 98.
  3. In the Instant Access Control Panel, click to clear the Microsoft Excel check box, and then click OK.
  4. Restart Excel.

    The Setup button in print preview works as expected.
If you do use the TextBridge Instant Access feature, you can work around this problem by removing Excel from your computer and reinstalling it.

NOTE: You must install Excel after TextBridge is installed for the Setup button to work correctly.
