Cannot build Word target

Postby Finner on Wed Jan 16, 2019 11:58 am

I posted back in July about this issue, and it still has not been solved. My product includes 4 Flare projects (documents). I publish both online and PDF targets, and use Word targets for my reviewers. Last summer, out of nowhere, 2 of the projects stopped publishing Word targets. The failure occurs after "Saving Word output." The message ID is 10086, and the Error text is "Build failed: Export to doc failed. Conversion to doc can be done manually on the XML file located at..."

I have tried removing all but one topic, and I still get the error message. More importantly, when I zip the project and send it to a coworker, she is able to build the Word file with no error! I am at a loss as to what to do. I tried saving the resulting XML file as a Word file, but the images are not included.

Does anyone have a suggestion? It seems the problem must be elsewhere than in Flare, since some of my projects DO built Word targets.

This thread suggests a problem with Win 10/Office 2016 and an general Flare setting needing to be unticked. The implication is that no projects would generate Word docs, but it can't hurt to check, given no other responses to your posts.

Thank you, psider. How do I get to the "Import/Export Word files without MS Office" option?

The second last post in that thread suggest File > Options > General, but I don't currently have a copy of Flare, so can't say for sure.

Thank you, thank you, psider! After I went to File > Options and unchecked Import/Export Word Files Without MS Office, I was able to print out Word targets again!
