Run-time error '4605' in Word 2013 - No Information Anywhere on Web

I've got a macro running on document open that crashes on this line:

ActiveDocument.Unprotect "mySuperUnbreakablePassword"

with the error:

Run-time error '4605':

The Unprotect method or property is not available because this command is not available for reading.

There's absolutely no information on the web about this, as of the posting of this message.

This very same document opens and operates just fine in Word 2010 and 2007.

Anybody know what's changed or what to do to get this document to avoid this error?

Thank you!

Go to File>Options>General and see if there is a check mark in the box:

 

"Open e-mail attachments and other uneditable files in reading view"

 

If there is, remove it.
