Are there known limitation to the numbers or size of add-ins in Word?
At the moment, if I do Application.COMAddIns.Count in a copy of Word, I get 4, one of which I wrote and the other three are
WordOptimisingAddin iManage Word2000 integration (Ver 1.3) Workshare Add-In For Microsoft Word
which are iManage (FileSite 8.2, actually) and WorkShare. On top of that, there are eight templates in the various startup directories, each with their own VBA project, so there's an awful lot of custom code being loaded into Word.
Obviously, when a running copy of Word with no documents open uses 115MB of RAM, it takes a long time to open the application.
We seem to mostly be getting slowdowns rather than out-and-out crashes, but I'm concerned that if we add much more then we will start getting lots of crashes. Are other people aware of these sorts of issues with Word getting too many plug-ins?
