Hi All
I tried installing an Avery Wizard in Word 2010 but after finding it was (a lot) more trouble than it was worth - I tried removing it. I've also tried repairing Word and uninstalling it and re-installing - I still seem to have the same problem..
Every time I now start Word 2010 I first of all get the following message:
Word cannot open this document template .....$Wiz12s.dotm
 (i've tried removing it from the Templates but it seems to keep coming back)
Then I get the following message  " Compile error in hidden module" AZ Wizard modul
Then when I try to use the QuickParts - I'm first told they are not available and then if I keep trying they are there...it's an annoyance I would like to sort at this point! thanks

You  may have some sort of temp file still hanging out that is causing the issue, are you viewing all your file types?
Close all open programs
Open Windows Explorer
Go To Tools > Folder Options > View Tab
Make sure that you are Showing Hidden files and that Hide extensions, Hide protected are UNCHECKED
Click OK
Go to the following directories and look for files that begin with a tilde ( ~ ).  If you find any, delete them.
C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 14\Templates

You may as well clear your Temp directory as well.  It is located here, usually:  C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Temp
You can type %temp% in the Win 7 search line and hit ENTER and it will take you right there

You may have a template in your Word startup area.  Check these locations for some sort of Avery file or Temp file as well:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\Startup
C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Word

Open Word and give it a try.

I hope this helps!
