Lync 2013 and Office Web Apps PowerPoint presentation sharing (missing VBA) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I have set up a Lync 2013 server and an Office Web Apps server. I am trying to share a PowerPoint presentation between Lync clients. Both clients have installed Office 365 and VBA is present in PowerPoint. However when i try to share a presentation i get the following error message:

    ""name.pptx" couldn't be converted to presentation because Visual Basic for Application (VBA) is not installed on this computer. Please install VBA and try again"

    If anyone could help resolve this problem it would be very much appreciated.

    Additional info:

    I have a 1 month free subscription to Office 365 Home Premium. When I click change on the Office client in Add or Remove Programs the only choices I get are "Fast repair" and "Online Repair". If I click change on the LYNC client I get to add features, and the Visual Basic for Application IS installed according to the installation options there.

    Regards

    You can try to reinstall VBA for Office.

  • This isn't working for Office 2013 Home and Business, because you could not reinstall VBA (only repair) and a reinstall of vba in Lync doesn't help. any idea?
