The installation guide was followed, and install of 6.99 works fine, so the problem does not appear to be user error.

Windows 10, Japanese OS
Word 2010

Install attempts made with Wordfast file directly from c:/ directory based on some other forum post that suggested Asian character sets might be an issue, but of course this is c:¥ for a Japanese OS.

All security errors are avoided, but the install does not happen automatically, and upon pressing Ctrl+Alt+W, the error message appears:

"Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications
Compile error in hidden module: M1
This error typically occurs due to incompatibility between code and application version, platform, or architecture."

The same error also occurs for version 7.23.

Hope you can help, or at least that the difference between 6 and 7 can be identified for future releases.

No expert, but Dec 27, 2018

I know that there is a degree of incompatibility between WFC and versions of Windows issued later than 2010, at least as far as working with Excel goes. I'm afraid I can't help you with the installation issue though, but I expect someone more knowledgeable will appear soon with a solution.

No ")" in the URL Dec 27, 2018

I don't understand why an "(" inserts itself in the URL. I've tried editing it out, and it comes back when I click "Post Reply."

Please make sure the URL is correct in your browser.
