Last Modified: 2016-03-02

Although one of our GP 2013 R2 (12.00.1920) users was able to click "OK" to the error and proceed with generating Microsoft Word documents out of GP, the error stated "An error occurred and this feature is no longer functioning properly.  Please run Setup and select 'Repair...' to restore this application.

In general, how do you eliminate this error with Word integration?  The steps below indicate that a registry setting can alleviate this.  Should these steps be followed?
