SOLIDWORKS Cam not loading in 2019

So 2018 was a busy year.  I never got around to installing  SOLIDWORKS 2018.  So I didn't even know about the new CAM.  So upon finding out last week I got around to updating to 2019 Premium.  I first did my old Windows 7 desktop and no luck.  I go to tools > Add-Ins and I see it on the list with the load on startup box checked, and I even saw it on the startup window saying "loading add in : SOLIDWORKS cam 2019"  But when I have a part open I don't see it anywhere. I go check it the Active Add-ins box (it's always unchecked) and again, nothing.  All the other add-ins appear to work normally.  

 

So then my new laptop arrived.  I thought I'd try again with this fresh new Windows 10 machine.  SOLIDWORKS went from SP0 to SP1 in the two days between installs.  THE EXACT SAME BEHAVIOR.  I did a "repair installation" on everything and still no luck.

 

Anyone experienced the same thing?  I don't know what else to try.
