No Ablebits tabs although Ultimate Suite is installed

If you have Ultimate Suite installed but the Ablebits tabs are still missing, the problem may be caused by Office or Windows updates. To make the Ablebits tabs show up on your Excel ribbon, try the troubleshooting solutions below.

Note. Not activated and unlicensed Microsoft Office does not run add-ins correctly.
