      Exactly the problem I've been having for months.  Office Tab for Enterprise 14.10 works fine with every other Office program.  I have tried to completely uninstall OTE and reinstall to no avail.

    Hello, I am using a licensed version of Office tools (Office 2016, 32 bit). That had worked flawlessly in principle. Suddenly the message "OfficeTabsLoader.DLL" / "initialisation error 4" appears. Even uninstalling and a new installation brought no remedy. Best regards, Fritz U. Wyssmann
