I've been trying for a week and I am unable to reproduce the problems mentioned here. I don't have administrative rights on my PC so that is not required. I have MS Word 2007 on Windows 7. I've been ungraded and I agree I hate Windows7. @Pytrus are you still getting the crash? On your last post you only mention the "Save template" issue.
I don't know if I've changed a setting in my MS Word to disable that but here is how my settings look. Note in particular the Red box.
I don't know if I'm stating the obvious here so please disregard if you are familiar with what I'm about to suggest.
Don't "open" the template file, create a new file and use the template. Do it buy selecting the "File |New..." and open a doc using "My templates"
Or double click on the BookCreator_2007.docm file. Enable the Marcro setting.
Also make sure you have the settings set the same way I do on my screen capture below.
To get to this setting do as follows
1) Open a word document
2) Select the "Office" logo
3) Select the button <Word Options>
4) Select on the "Advance" tab
5) Scroll down to the "Save" section.
Let me know if this helps
