The latest version of IguanaTex (currently v1.59 -- April 27, 2021) should work for all users, on 32-bit or 64-bit Windows, running 32-bit or 64-bit MS Office, on PowerPoint 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019, as well as Office 365; and on any Mac with PowerPoint 2019 or Office 365.
Note that the Windows/Mac version of the add-in is currently in Beta, although it should work at least as well as previous Windows-only versions.
Version 1.58 IguanaTex v1.58 (.ppam) (October 10, 2020)
Important note regarding malware detections: Some anti-virus softwares and firewalls report IguanaTex_v1_58.ppam as malware, sometimes even blocking download. After careful review of the code, I believe that these are false positives (more details at the bottom of this page). If you are having difficulties downloading the file above, the password protected .zip file containing the add-in (password: IguanaTex) should be fine. You can also try white-listing the file with your anti-virus software, or try the .pptm source (for the source version, open and "save as" a .ppam add-in file, then load that add-in).
For users from institutions requiring digital signatures (code-signing): IguanaTex v1.58 with self-signed certificate (.ppam)
If your institution prevents you from using the recommended version of the add-in at the top of the page, please download this version, code-signed using a self-signed digital certificate that I created, and ask your IT department to add that certificate to their list of trusted certificates.
v1.59+: Mac support; SVG support (more reliable than EMF); import LaTeXiT displays; and many more.
v1.50+: vector graphics support; batch edit mode; insertion of vector graphics files (.pdf/.eps/.ps/.emf) as PowerPoint shapes; and many more.
v1.40+: platex (Japanese) support; templates; per-display settings; TexPoint compatibility; read .tex from file; edit in external editor; regenerate multiple displays at once; relative path settings; and many more.
Since v1.37: UTF-8 support; new PDF to PNG conversion option, e.g., to handle Tikz; selection between pdflatex/xelatex/lualatex; various usability improvements; better error handling.

Note 1: When upgrading to v1.34 or later, you may notice that some displays (typically larger ones) created with versions up to v1.33 change size when editing them. This is a once-per-display necessary inconvenience to handle an inconsistency in how PowerPoint inserts images.
Note 2: v1.50 fixes a rescaling issue occurring when using computers with various DPI settings (for PNG displays only; EMF displays are still affected). The caveat is that this results in a one time resizing inconsistency for displays created on monitors with DPI other than 96. (I tried very hard to make this backward compatible, but came to the conclusion that it was not reasonably possible.)
IguanaTex v1.58 (.pptm) (October 10, 2020)
If you modify the code, you will need to save it as a new .ppam add-in file, remove the current version of the add-in and add yours instead.
Github: the source code for all versions of IguanaTex is also available on Github.
For PowerPoint 97-2003: if you have trouble with the .ppam add-in, you can try IguanaTex v1.58 (.ppa) (October 10, 2020)
More details regarding malware detections: As can be seen on virustotal.com's analysis, a binary component containing macros I wrote (or included after checking they were safe) is being flagged as suspicious. You can check the content of all macros in the analysis. If someone has a clue how to avoid such false positives, please contact me.
