Now if the steps above helped, but you have to do it every time you start Excel, here’s how to solve this:
- Press Windows+R and type ‘regedit’, then click OK.
- In the registry editor, find the following key:

If you installed the software for All users on a 64-bit computer and 32-bit Excel:

If none of the steps above helped, you may have add-ins disabled entirely in your security settings. To change that:
- Go to File -> Options in Excel.
- Click on Trust Center -> Trust Center Settings
- Click on Add-ins on the left.
- Check if ‘Disable all Application Add-ins’ box is not checked:
