Default Error message when opening any template

Whenever I open word and clilck on any template I get the message shown in the attachment. This is also shown in windows explorer when I highlight a word doc. Any ideas on how to fix this? I am using Word 2013 and windows 7.



Thanks

Have you checked your macro security settings in Word? In Word, click on Developer>Macro Security, then choose the 2nd or 3rd option from the top.

Thanks for your reply. I have changed the trust center security settings to enable all macros multiple times without any success. If I go deeper into the dialog box, it says i t may be because
⦁ The macro was deleted from the template.
⦁ The template was not loaded or referenced in the Templates and Add-ins command.
I could not find any reference to a macro in the normal template and followed the instructions without any luck.

Are you opening an actual Word template, or just a document you're calling a template? It'd be quite unusual for a template to generate the kind of message you're describing, but not for a document with a macro that references another that's supposed to be in its template. Alternatively, the message could be generated by a faulty 3rd-party addin.

I believe that it is a template. When you open up word 2013, it automatically goes to a list of many templates, including the basic blank document. This is different than the other versions of Word that I have used in the past. I have downloaded another template from microsoft which is single spaced blank document. That has the same problem. with the message. I have not made a new template, since I believe it would have the same problem.

Thanks for the response.

The problem is resolved. An Add-in that was automatically added when I installed Word 2013 caused the problems. The problem was the automatically loaded add-in file called AVWiz14s.dotm, which is associated with an Avery Label Wizard. I searched for the file and deleted it without any problems. It now works. It seems that the add in impacts all templates.

Thanks for your ideas and support.

Those cursed add-ins. It is unfortunate that so many of them cause so much pain. While some responsibility lies with the 3rd party applications, I squarely point an accusing finger at Microsoft for not letting developers full access to the internal workings.
