To verify that the APE Word Add-in is installed correctly:
- Open Microsoft™ Word
- Click INSERT (shown circled in red below)
- Check that you can see APE Template Fields (circled in green below)

If you cannot see APE Template Fields (as per above) then please:
- The MSI installer requires Visual Studio Tools for Office Runtime.

Users without admin permission can use the MSI installer.
- Ensure that your version of Microsoft Word is 2010 or higher
- Ensure that your operating system is Windows™

Note that it can make a different to use the “Run as Administrator” option even if you are logged in as Administrator and have the Admin rights on your PC.
- Try restarting your computer
- Try re-installing the add-in while Word is closed.
- If you have an HP computer then HP Security Manager software might be interfering.

- Try Internet Options => Security Tab, then for Internet zone, turn on "Enable Protected Mode"
and try re-booting and then re-installing the Addin.
