Skype for Business error - "Visual Basic For Applications is not installed"

You may receive this error when attempting to view or share a Powerpoint presentation in a Skype for Business online meeting:

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

This is unfortunately caused by an invalid installation of Office. You will need to uninstall Office and re-install using the FULL download. Commonly caused by the "Click to run" or "streaming" installation of Office from Office 365.


Please contact Clear Cloud Services to find out the best method to go about this.
