* Note for Excel 2010 Users: Your Excel configuration needs to include Microsoft Service Pack 2 (SP2). Without this, Excel may tell you that the PRC file is corrupted.
* Note 1 for Excel 2007 Users: Your Excel configuration needs to include Microsoft Service Pack 3 (SP3). Without this, Excel may tell you that the PRC file is corrupted.
* Note 2 for Excel 2007 Users: The digital signature is not recognized by Excel 2007 and will be reported as an invalid signature. This is due to the fact that Excel 2007 has not been maintained by Microsoft since 2012 and is no longer compatible with the newer security software technology used to produce the Pralana Consulting LLC digital signature. The workaround is to create a new folder on your Windows system into which you place the PRC file. Then, via Excel’s Trust Center, you specify this folder as a Trusted Location.
* Note for Internet Explorer 11 users on Windows 10 machines: PRC downloads may fail to work with this configuration. The workaround is as follows: On the IE11 page, go to Tools (the cog in the upper right corner), then Safety, then “Turn Off Windows Defender SmartScreen”. You can then turn this back to the “On” state when the download is completed.
The Pralana Retirement Calculator operates on your local computer using Microsoft Excel and is available in two versions. The Gold version sells for $99 (2019 Gold licensees can login and upgrade for $49) and is a high-fidelity financial model designed for personal use. A Pralana Gold license entitles you to free support via e-mail and all updates of the 2020 model. You can learn more by visiting the Pralana Gold page of our website and you can get a free download of its extensive user manual to learn even more. The free Bronze version is specially made for the person who desires to go beyond a quick-and-dirty financial analysis but prefers a simple, easy-to-use design.
At a high level, what’s the difference between Gold and Bronze?
Both calculators yield essentially the same fixed rate and Monte Carlo results to a simple scenario, but Gold has the ability to model far more complex scenarios with these additional capabilities:
Option 1: A Windows platform running Excel 2007 or later (Excel 2007 and 2010 users, please see the note at the bottom of this page)
Option 2: A Mac system running at least O/S 10.5 and Excel 2011 for Macs
Option 3: A Mac system configured with the Parallels Desktop (or an equivalent program for supporting Windows applications), Windows and Windows Excel 2007 or later.
