Default OT: Word 2016 OLE issues

Hi

For those that use OLE automation I've found an issue with handling
Word 2016 in that you may see "interface not supported" type errors.

It looks like this version has a "safe mode" enabled by default. To
switch it off, in Word 2016:

- Go to File -> Options
- Go to the Trust Center section
- Click on the 'Trust Centre Settings' button
- Click on the 'Active X' section
- Uncheck the "Safe Mode" checkbox
- Save the changes


Previous versions also had a "safe mode" however it did not affect OLE
control to the extent I'm starting to see as more customers upgrade.

HTH

*SIGHS* Spoke too soon.

Can still get "The interface is unknown" errors (Word 2016 under
Windows 7)

Hello Will,

I'm facing the same issue, I wonder after 4 years if you have found the solution for the issue.

I'm joining this forum just for this post, I'll appreciate any help!

Thanks, I know. But since Will had this very specific so he most likely might have a ready solution.
