Hi folks,<BR><BR>We have developed a COM component which opens MS Word and attempts to add a new document to docs collection. For some reason, we get the error: "Could not open macro storage." (I am assuming this a security prob, correct me if not.) I know with Win 2000 the default setting is not to allow macros/code unless digitally signed. I have found and successfully manipulated the regsitry key to change this setting for CURRENT USER, but how do I do this for the SYSTEM account? Or, how do I get an unsigned piece of code to run in a COM component. Or, if this isn&#039;t a security problem, please let me know! We&#039;ve done a similar thing with Excel with no probs! Help!<BR><BR>TIA, Greg
