BI Publisher Desktop install missing Word Add In

I installed BI Publisher Desktop on my PC but while trying to get the Add In to show up in the Word Ribbon I inadvertently removed the BI Publisher entry from the COMS Add In page within Word.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled the desktop a couple of times but cannot get the BI Publisher Add-in to show up again under Word Options > Add-ins > COM Add-ins so that I can enable it.  Start > Oracle BI Publisher Desktop > Enable or Disable Template Builder doesn't help, nor does Start > Oracle BI Publisher Desktop > Set Template Builder Language.  I have also uninstalled & reinstalled Java, that hasn't solved the problem. 

Here is what Word > Options > Add-ins > COM Add-ins  looks like currently with Java & the BIP Desktop reinstalled:


I've searched through various files on the support website but none seems to address this particular issue.
