The following Microsoft Office solution cannot be installed due to a general installer error: SlideLizard.vsto 0x8007007E
This error happens when your computer is missing a specific Microsoft software package which enables the installation of Microsoft Office Add-Ons.
- Download & install the required software from Microsoft: Download Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime from Official Microsoft Download Center (this may require Administrator privileges).
- Restart the installation of SlideLizard.
Your security settings do not allow this application to be installed on your computer
Your administrator has blocked this application because it potentially poses a security risk to your computer.
This error can occur if your security settings are different than the Windows standard settings (and therefore do not allow the installation of so-called ClickOnce applications).
- Download and run (double click) the following file: Fix installation not allowed.
This will adjust your settings to allow the installation. You can find more information here: Microsoft documentation – ClickOnce Prompt Behaviour.
