Quizmaker (Studio '13) not launching in Powerpoint (2013) after update

Yesterday we installed the update for Presenter '13 (Build 7.11.1809.1417). After installation, Quizmaker will not launch under PPT, and when trying, it has hung PPT a couple of times. Under PPT, it will no longer open an existing embedded quiz, nor create a new quiz. It just will not open. In addition, when attempting to launch under PPT, Quizmaker does not show up in Task Manager under Applications.

Quizmaker will launch on its own, outside of PPT. When it does, it does show up in Task Manager under Applications. 

  1. Has this feature (opening under PPT) been removed?
  2. If not, any suggestions on the next step?

(Because of problems we have had with Quizmaker previously, (having produced a corrupt file per your support engineer) I am concerned if it is not opening the way it used to. )

Thank you-

Running PPT 15.0.5023.1000 and Windows 7

Hi Loralee, 

Did you also install the update to Quizmaker? 

If you're still unable to add Quizmaker into Powerpoint, I'd look into these next two steps to fix it:

  1. Repair Articulate Studio '13.
  2. Verify that the Articulate add-ins are properly enabled in PowerPoint.

Let me know if you need more help!

Thank you.

The build for Quizmaker, is 11:1809.1417, and that is the current one per your website.
I checked the settings in PPT and Add-Ins are not disabled, The Articulate Presenter IPC Handler is enabled, and the Trust Center is allowing use.

I will contact our IT department to try the Repair.
