Hi,

I have a little app that launches word and reads from it, the problem is that when I use the following code it freezes my app until WORD is fully loaded, would there be a way to open the Word.Application in SAFE mode and read from it, it's just that in safe mode it opens up instantly.
Dim appWord As New Word.Application
appWord.Visible = False
Dim docWord As New Word.Document

Open in new window

The way you stop your App from being blocked from long running methods is to use threads. However and this is important, VBA does not have threading and more importantly you should not use different threads with office.

Do you know why Word opens so slow? Have you disabled all addins to see if that helps? After opening word what do you do, do you open a specific document?
