November 6, 2018, update for PowerPoint 2016 (KB4461502)

Applies to: PowerPoint 2016

This article describes update 4461502 for Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 that was released on November 6, 2018.

Be aware that the update on the Microsoft Download Center applies to the Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2016. It doesn't apply to the Office 2016 Click-to-Run editions, such as Microsoft Office 365 Home. (How to determine?)

Improvements and fixes


This update fixes the following issues:
  • When you save a .ppt file that contains a macro as a .pptm file by using the Presentation.SaveAs method, the generated .pptm file may not contain the macro.
  • Assume that you have an Information Rights Management (IRM) encrypted PowerPoint template. You can't create a new .pptx file through double-clicking the preview thumbnail of the IRM encrypted template on the Backstage View. In addition, you cannot preview the IRM encrypted template on the Backstage View.
