How to fix “Compile error in hidden module” on Word for Mac

Getting a Compile error in hidden module: link error when you’re opening or quitting Microsoft Word on your Mac is caused by Acrobat DC, which installs an add-on that causes the error.

You will get this error both when starting, and quitting Microsoft Word, but Word will continue to work normally. Here is how to get rid of that annoying popup.

  1. Close Microsoft Word.
  2. Open the following folder:

~/Library/Group Containers/UBF8T346G9.Office/User Content/Startup/Word

or

~/Library/Group Containers/UBF8T346G9.Office/User Content.localized/Startup.localized/Word

 



You can open the Library folder by holding the Alt key on your keyboard while clicking on the Go menu, and choosing Library. Alternativelyyou can launch Terminal and just go to that directory and manually remove the file.

  1. Within the Word folder, you will see the dotm file. This is the file we mentioned earlier, the one that causes the problem.
  2. Drag the file to your desktop or delete the linkCreation.dotm file
  3. Restart Microsoft Word. The error message will be now gone.
