      Hi Carl.
      Thanks for your reply.

      Unfortunately a full Office repair isn’t an option, as the only place where I have access to both Office and the Netscalers are from a non-persistent VDI.
      I tried running the script with the suggested parameters, but it didn’t make much difference, there was no output. The only thing that happens is that Word starts running in the background, and has to be killed manually. This happens everytime, regardsless of what arguments I use when running the script.

      I’ll have a look around and see if I can find another machine to run the script, maybe that will help.

      Keep up to good work, and stay safe.

        Have you tried the Export and Import options. Those are what I use when I don’t have access to Word at the customer’s site. When Andrew does his next update to that script, I will add HTML output.

      Hi Carl.
      FYI, seems like the latest version of the ADC script doesn’t recognize the version of Word I’m have available here now, so it stops. Office was updated last week, just after New Years I believe.

      We’re running Office 365, 16.0.13426.20270, 32 bit.

        Issues with Word or the #1 most FAQ. I recommend doing a full online repair of Office. That has solved all but one reported issue.

        If you could rerun the script with -Dev -ScriptInfo -Log and email me those three text files, that would help.
