    I just got Lion, and now in launchpad there is a solver app in the first screen (the screen which shows apple applications by default) that doesn't work (it opens up, my excel 2011 opens with it, and then solver just crashes).

    What the heck is solver?

    Have you deleted Excel? Sometimes Solver gets left behind and will crash if you don't have Excel installed.

    In XL, you need to go to tool>add-ins and click on solver.
    Now you will have a solver option on your data tab in XL.
    This link is a good tutorial on how it works and what it does!
