Please first compile the workbook - Generate setup

At the time of launching generate setup, I have a message that says: “Please first compile the workbook” I do not see what that means for this last step.

This error occurs because you cannot generate a Setup file before compiling the secure application by clicking the appropriate button first called “Build Secure Application”.

If the error persists, verify that the EXE generated by XLS Padlock isn’t deleted by a third-party software such as an antivirus software.
