Lumi ViewPoint Add-in Disappeared

Lumi ViewPoint is a PowerPoint add-in that can be disabled by the laptop as it is not an essential service.

If you have installed Lumi ViewPoint but the ViewPoint tab has not appeared in the PowerPoint ribbon or disappeared, this could be due to the Lumi ViewPoint not being initialised after installation or the add-in has become disabled.

If Lumi ViewPoint Icon is not run on the final step of the install or the icon not clicked then the add-in doesn't load. Starting Lumi ViewPoint from the desktop icon or from C:\Program Files (x86)\IML\Click Hub\ImlHubHost-ClickVersion.exe should make it appear.
