PowerPoint error 80040154

Apr 17, 2013 at 8:00 AM
I've been writing an Add-In for PowerPoint and yesterday while testing in VSTO for the first time, I had following code error.
System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80040154): Retrieving the COM cla
ss factory for component with CLSID {91493441-5A91-11CF-8700-00AA0060263B} faile

Actually the code being executed is the following:
using PowerPoint = NetOffice.PowerPointApi;

// A bit further in program
PowerPoint.Application ppApp = new PowerPoint.Application(); -> here
I tried to do : regsvr32 msxml3.dll

GUID is in Registry fine, I looked it up.


Didn't help me out.

Any idea? It crashes on NetOffice PowerPointAPi.
