Every time I open an existing document in Word 2016 on Windows 10 I get this error:
Word could not create the work file. Check the temp environment variable.
I can edit the document fine, and save it, but I have an error message popped up in the background and it makes an annoying ding every time I open a document.
If I open Word and create a new document I can save it fine, but the next time I open it, the error appears.
Articles found in searches often suggest to use regedit to check the Cache environment variable is correct - mine is
%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache which according to these articles is correct).
I have also noticed that the location above is set to read-only in Windows, which doesn't seem right, but I don't know if this is normal or the cause of my problem.
Has anyone resolved this error recently?
