Error message when modifying SharePoint task in Word document RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are running SharePoint 2007 currently and just updated to Office 2013. When a workflow is started in SharePoint (basically an OOB Approval workflow) the task cannot be edited through the Office program. The e-mail goes out OK, you can open the file and the "Workflow Task" bar is there right below the ribbon. The problem is when you try to "Open this task..." you get this error:

    "(Word) cannot open a new form.

    One or more required custom controls in this form cannot be created. "

    (The program changes to Excel, InfoPath, etc) 

    I have found a few other people that have experienced this problem but I've yet to find a solution.

    Please help me! This is a really frustrating problem since we have quite a few processes that run through these workflows.
