PowerPoint Add-In & Recording Not Working

I recently downloaded the free trial of Camtasia. I downloaded this to use with PowerPoint for digital signage. However, I am having difficulty using the software. It will not let me add Camtasia as an Add-In on PowerPoint. I have tried modifying the software and checking the box “Enable PowerPoint Add-In”, but it is still saying “Inactive Application Add-In” in PowerPoint. I have also made sure that the PowerPoint Add-In box is checked within Camtasia. I am very interested in purchasing the software, but not if I can’t get it working.

PowerPoint 2016 add-in Fix for Camtasia 8.  It could work for other versions as well.  TechSmith Tech support was very helpful.  Click the link below to see the short video explaining what to do.

Make sure you have  PowerPoint enabled in Camtasia 8. See Image Below,Click to Enlarge.



In PowerPoint be sure to click the Add-Ins tab.

I'm working with Windows 10, Camtasia 9.0.1, and PowerPoint 2016. All have most recent updates. When I attempt to add "add in", it doesn't work.  After running through the steps, I've even restarted my computer but it still doesn't work. I even disable my PDF program in PowerPoint and the add-in will not work. In fact, it doesn't show up in Add-ins in PowerPoint or disabled add-ins. Video I made is here. http://chrismenardtraining.com/camtasia-studio-9-add-powerpoint-2016-not-working
