I am trying to use Office-Web-Addins https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/office/dev/add-ins/overview/office-add-ins available at the office add-in store (e.g. for powerpoint an excel...). I am using Windows 10 and the Office 2016 on premises version (so not Office 365).

I have figured out, that all office-web-addins only load in e.g. PowerPoint, if PowerPoint is started with administrator rights. Since I do not want to log in to Windows with Administrator rights I am facing a dead end right now.

Is there a way to grant e.g. PowerPoint the needed permissions without the need to grant the windows user administrator rights? Or is there a way to get the add-ins to load under normal user permissions/rights?
