How do I activate Web Apps?

WEB APPS are a new way to experience content in Gumbleville Launcher. 

If you have PowerPoint 2010, you are ready to go. If you have PowerPoint 2013 or later, we need you to enable WEBAPPS before you can use them.


 We are providing you with this file to make it simple to enable web apps. Use it at your own risk.

You can also enable web apps yourself. 

Web Apps are deactivated by default in PowerPoint 2013 and up.

To work around this issue, disable the 32-bit kill-bits by browsing to the locations in the following registry, and then change the value of the DWORD for the applicable ClassID from from 1024 to 0.

For the Click-to-Run installation of Office 2013, locate the following registry subkey:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\15.0\ClickToRun\REGISTRY\MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\COM Compatibility\<ClassID> 

For the MSI installation of Office 2013, locate the following registry subkey:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\COM Compatibility\<ClassID> Note To identify the installation version of Office 2013, follow these steps: 

  1. Start an Office 2013 application, such as Word 2013. 
  2. On the File menu, click Account
  3. If Office 2013 was installed by using Click-to-Run, an "Update Options" item is displayed. For an MSI installation, the "Update Options" item is not displayed.
