Problem opening Word Document when ActiveX Macros installed - Windows

Hi all,

I have a very frustrating problem with my Word 2007 installation on a Dell Inspiron running Windows 7.

When trying to open a Word document from a Shortcut I get the error message "There was a problem sending the command to the program" and Word opens but the document doesn't. On clicking the shortcut again (with Word already open) the document opens with no problem.

After much trial and error I have established that this only occurs when I have certain Macros installed that I use to import text directly into Word from another application (e-Sword Bible program).

The macro dll is installed in the application directoty in ...\...\Program Files\e-sword and the document template "e.sword.dot" in ...(User)\App Data\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP

If the template is deleted from the STARTUP folder then documents open without a hitch, but of course my macros don't work.

I have exactly the same versions of Word 2007 and the e-sword application and macros running on a Windows Vista machine and have no problem with it. I have tried running in Compatibility mode, but that hasn't helped.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks in anticipation.
