PowerPoint 2003 - How do I enable the ActiveX Controls Toolbox (it's greyed out / disabled)?
Posted on 2011-05-10
We recently made a number of updates and changes to the configuration of one of our workstations, and since then, in PowerPoint, the Controls Toolbox is greyed out, and when you open up the Controls Toolbox, all of the controls on it are disabled.
This is more than just a Shockwave Flash issue, since it's all of the controls (including radio buttons, input controls etc) that are disabled.
Does anyone know specifically what component might be responsible for this, and how to redress the issue. Suggestions of "uninstall MS office and reinstall" are not welcome, since that has already been done.
