BUG in Word 2013 - Application.UserControl returns always false if start screen is activated RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an Add-In for Word 2013 and want to check if word 2013 is embedded started in another program. But Application.UserControl returns always FALSE, even I started Word 2013 manually. This happened just when the start screen is activated. If I uncheck the "Show the Start screen when this application starts" option in the Word options window, Application.UserControl returns true.

    I think it's a bug in Word 2013. Do somebody a wordground for this problem?

  • Hey,

    I just want to bump this thread because we are encountering the same problem in Word 2016, too. We are currently looking for a workaround but a statement from Microsoft regarding this issue would be nice.

    Thanks in advance
