Disable Dialog Boxes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way to disable any/all error dialog boxes from opening in Word 2010?

    I am running a .NET application that will open an instance of Word and convert the file to PDF. If any error occurs do not want any dialog boxes to open. I have already been able to disable the option ones, looking for any can be disabled via registry.

    Remember I Know Nothing Either.....Good Luck

    We don't have any methods to disable all the dialog boxes. We can handle some dialog boxes one by one using reflection, but I don't think that will work in your scenario.


    What you are trying to achieve is possible thru Word Automation Services
