No matter what document I want to open, I ALWAYS, ALWAYS get this message and have to click OK 3 times before seeing the document :

« The function you are attempting to run contains macros or content that requires macro language support (...) »

I have Windows 7 64, and this is Word 2010. Help :(

My guess is that under tools / options / security you have a setting for macros that has it query whether you want to allow them.

I tried the 4 options in the Macros settings, to no avail ..

This error message actually appears when I OPEN Word, no matter if it's by opening a Word document or just launching the Word executable.

So it's not related to particular documents.

That is a strange message especially since you are not trying to open a document.
