OK, I have this problem - I used Wordfast 3.35 and today I decided to purchase the new Wordfast version from the website. I wrote down the license number after downloading, paid and then installed it on the computer. I work on my parents' computer now, since I am on vacation, but I wanted to put Wordfast eventually on my working computer [laptop] which has no connection to the Internet at the moment. So I just put the WF file on the memory stick, transferred it to my laptop and installed WF the usual way, replacing my old one. It runs at Word startup and looks nice, except when I want access to the "F" window to open a TM, it says "Run-time error 6068: Programmatic Access to Visual Basic Project is not trusted".

My macros are set on low and everything seems to be fine. What's wrong?

What operating system and version of Word? Jul 4, 2006

I seem to recall running into to this once when using my father-in-law's computer while on a visit. You'll need to let us know the operating system and version of Word, but I think the issue was that I was logged into a non-administrator level account and it didn't have sufficient privileges to enable macros, even if it seemed to go through the motions.

Try logging in as an administrator and trying it that way. Just don't forget to reset the macro protections when you're done!

Good luck!

Steven

One guess: virus protection Jul 4, 2006

Some virus protections do conflict with Wordfast. But I'm not sure. You might get better advice when posting your question at the wordfast group on Yahoo.
I had this problem when switching to Wf 5.1, so I went back to Wf 5.0.
Regards
Heinrich
