Word cannot open because a dialog box is open. Please close the dialog box to continue

I got this message whenever I opened a Word document from Outlook with MS Word 2013 installed. It worked fine if I already had Word open before trying to open the .doc or .docx file from Outlook.

Searched online and found a solution. It basically removes some of the extra security in Word.

Open Word 2013

Click File-Options-Trust Center

Click the Trust Center Settings…

Click the Protected View and uncheck all the options

Now you won’t get the annoying error message.
