I'm trying to add a youtube video add-in (http://skp.mvps.org/youtube.htm) to my MS Powerpoint 07.

However, when i try to add the add-in, Powerpoint freezes after following these steps (from website):

1. Extract the contents of the zip to a folder.
2. Launch PowerPoint.
3. Click on Office Button | PowerPoint Options.
4. In the PowerPoint Options dialog, select the Add-ins tab.

It just "sits there'...and the screen doesn't load..nothing shows up.


I'm running Windows Vista.

Any suggestions how to fix this? Thanks!

Three things...

1. Read the documentation that came with the add-in ? (is it mean't for ppt 07?)
2. Lower your security settings to allow the add-in to load
3. Try emailing the author (nicely!)
