PowerPoint VBA Add-In gets loaded on application startup, but not when opening a file RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I start PowerPoint (32-bit Office 365, version 1909 build 12026.20320) and create a new presentation, my custom ribbon UI and VBA add-in code loads as expected.

    If I double-click an existing presentation to start PowerPoint, my ribbon and VBA add-in code never run.  PowerPoint still shows it as a PowerPoint Add-In, and claims that it is loaded, but it does not appear on the ribbon.

    LoadBehavior registry key doesn't seem to apply for VBA add-ins.  Macro security is set to minimums with no change.  What am I missing?
