- I have a word template which uses VBA’s
Declarestatement to link to a dll, whose path can be determined within the VBA macro
- I want to delploy this to the users %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP directory
- I DON’T want to permanently change the user’s PATH environment variable (temporarily would be OK, but this doesn’t seem to work as they don’t get refreshed until application restart)
I tried dynamically adding the code with the
Declare statements using
ThisDocument.VBProject.CodeModule.AddFromString(code) which works when loading the template from a normal directory, but when the template is within Word\STARTUP, it gives the following error:
Run-time error ‘50289’:
Can’t perform operation since the
project is protected.
And setting the registry key “HKEY___LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Security\AccessVBOM” to 1 doesn’t fix this when the template is in Word\STARTUP
I’m really struggling to find a solution. If anyone knows a way to do this, that would be great.
