HTML Maker in Excel 2016 (or 365)

I'm trying (and failing!) to get the HTML maker add-in to show in Excel. I have installed the add-in and have it ticked on the Excel add-ins list - all fine so far. Next I enable the add-ins tab on the ribbon - nothing. I've tried all sorts of combinations of disbling add-ins, restarting Excel, etc., but nothing works. I haven't found anything online with any more suggestions than what I've already tried. Does anyone here who has Excel 365 or 2016 have any idea about how I can get it working? Thanks! :eek:

I have to drag it from my desktop and drop it into an open spreadsheet every time I open a new one. Try that.

If you right click the actual addin, click properties and click the security tab is the blocked checkbox checked?

There is no such checkbox on the security tab, Mark. I'm using Windows 10 (Anniversary Update not yet installed). I have full control.

Look under the General tab in properties (doing this by memory as only on my phone)..

And close all Excel windows first.

Aha! Found it! But it hasn't made any difference, sadly. Thanks for trying!

No other ideas at present I'm afraid but at least it probably rules out Microsoft's wonderful update in July. :(
 
It's very odd - if I enable Excel Genie (which I also have) and then enable the add-ins tab, it appears, but with no sign of HTML Maker. The tab remains visible until I close Excel and restart, and then it's gone. I'm out of ideas!
