I installed the Shinydrive Office Add-In but it's not showing up!


You installed our Shinydrive Office Add-In, but it is not showing up in your Office Applications.


Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime is not installed. Most Office Add-ins require this and it is not typically installed automatically with Windows updates or Office updates.


  1. Download Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime at

  2. Confirm that the Shinydrive Office Add-in is enabled in your Office application. For more information, please visit Microsoft's support topic at

  3. Check with your system administrator if Office Add-ins are allowed with your organization’s Group Policy.
