opening .DOT file crash word 2016, but works in word 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, We have some existing .DOT word templates files.

    If i open them with Office 2010 I can see the template content.

    When opening them with Office 2016, the WINWORD process memory is increased to 2GB and crash.

    By opening, im not talking about the interop COM objects, I am talking about opening them with the office original application.

    Can i send somewhere the DOT files to investigate ? Is this a bug in my DOT files ? maybe a bug in word ?
