Hey there everyone,
I recently purchased Microsoft Office, but i'm actually having issues with it and i can't figure out the problem. Basically whenever I open up a document, I get the following message "There was a problem while sending the command to the program". I've done some research, and looked up forums, but i still haven't found a fix. I've tried deleting the data from the registry, disabling DDE, and reinstalling the program itself. Nothing has worked so far. However, if I open Microsoft Word on it's own, and then select any document from the recent sidebar, the message does not appear. It should also be noted that I have it linked to my OneDrive. However I don't think this is a problem, as the message appears even from locally saved documents. I might be wrong though. Software is Microsoft Office 2016 (updated) and Windows 10. Another thing that should also be noted is that this error only appears on Microsoft Word. Other MS programs such as PowerPoint, Publisher etc don't have the message (tested in same environment). I have also tried all the solutions shown in this Microsoft fix https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3001579 but none of them work.
