Error trying to run in 64-Bit Version of Microsoft Office
"Unhandled exception has occured in your application..."
This means you're trying to run in the 64- Bit version of Office instead of the 32-Bit.
You can verify your version by starting Word and Go File > Account > About Microsoft Word... at the top of the form it will have the version (32 or 64-bit).
To fix the issue you will need to change the office version to 32-Bit.
Issue: Lists are Empty
When picking a client or an estimate to open the list may be empty.
To fix: Change display setting in Office to Optimize for Compatability and restart.
