PowerPoint crashes on startup

Problem

When you start PowerPoint, you get a message that begins:


Microsoft Office program has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
If you were in the middle of something, the information you were working on might be lost.

This can be caused by various add-ins, though not by any of the PPTools add-ins. However, the problem may be triggered by other add-ins when PPTools are installed.

Please see this for more information:
