Many users utilize the legacy add-ins for DataLink through VBA code.  Starting with DataLink 2016, the add-ins are not installed by default and so upgrades and new installations can prevent existing spreadsheets from working if additional steps were not taking to install the legacy components.  These steps are unnecessarily complicated: extract the installation package, modify the setup.ini, then proceed with the installation.

Instead, the installation wizard could provide users with an option to install the legacy components while at the same time warning them of the security risks posed by ActiveX.
