pptPlex not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed pptPlex add-in Microsoft Office 2010 and it is not showing up on the ribbon.

    I have also installed the Primary Intertop Assemblies and .NET Framework 4.5 which are pre-requisites.

    I assumed the add-in was disabled and i tried to enable it but i am getting a persistent error: "Not Loaded. A runtime error occurred during the loading of the COM add-in."

    I am using Windows 7 and have MS Office 2010 installed

  • I solved my issue. I am posting the solution:

    The pptplex was installed in the Program Files(x86) folder and Powerpoint was unable to access it. I went to the properties of the folder Microsoft Labs and changed the permissions under the Security Tab so that i my account(though it is the main admin account) has full access to the folder. 

    pptPlex add-in was working after that.
