PowerPoint Add-in: Installation requires elevated privileges

This item has been identified as an outstanding known issue. A workaround is provided until the issue is officially fixed.

 

Issue

For versions 1.6 and 1.7 of the PowerPoint Add-in elevated privileges are required to install the add-in through command line and for the "all users" option.

 

Workaround

  1. Installing through the UI for "single user" will avoid this scenario.
  2. For mass deployment:
  • Open command Prompt as Admin or
  • Use the switch /qr for a "pseudo" silent install. This will install the add-in with a reduced UI that requires no end user interaction (so long as switches are present) while avoiding the elevated privileges required.

Example:

Msiexec.exe /i “<path to msi installer>”  /qr 

 

If this workaround is not suitable in your use case, please contact Support at support@anaplan.com.
