  1. In MSP, go to File->Options
  2. Click on 'Add-Ins' on the left-hand menu
  3. Check the 'Disabled Application Add-ins section' section on the right-hand side
  4. If the Clarity Add-In is listed in the disabled section, review the Resolution steps of this article

Symptoms reported include:

  • The CA Clarity Integration Addin keeps getting disabled, and it has to be re-enabled each time Microsoft Project (MSP) is opened.
  • 'caclarityaddin' gets unloaded / ribbon is gone every time MSP is launched/Integration tag not available
