SDL MultiTerm template errors during startup or closure of Word 2010
Thread poster: jlangner

Dear all,
here comes another problem:

I encounter exactly what is described here:
Upon starting Word states:
The macro cannot be found or has been disabled because of your security settings.
Three clicks to the upper right make Word start.
When closed again Word states:
Compile error in hidden module MT insert functions ...

The patch provided ( does not work, presumably because the path to mscomctl.ocx is different on the faulty system, for whatever reason ...

It is supposed to be: c:\windows\system32\mscomctl.ocx

But on the faulty system it is: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\SDL\T2007\TT\mscomctl.ocx"

Tried the manual solution with paths adjusted after having deleted all *.exd files.

Unregistering and re-registering worked properly w/o errors.

But Word still acts up!

Any hints are highly appreciated!



Windows 7-64
Office 2010-64 (14.0.7106.5003)
Multiterm 2011 SP2 (9.2.361.0)

If you never use Multiterm inside Word, you can move the .dot template from the MS Word Startup menu (see path from link below). This will disable the Multiterm menu in the Toolbar, and no more errors should appear.

Unfortunately, if you use MT inside of Word, I don't have a solution
