If you plan to use Wordfast Classic with Word 2010, make sure you are not using the Click-to-Run version of Office 2010, as it is known to cause problems in certain setups. See the following article for more information.

Before you can install Wordfast, you need to make a few changes in Word's security settings. In Word 2010, select File > Options:

Word 2010, File, Options

In Word Options, select Trust Center > Trust Center Settings:

Word 2010, Trust Center, Trust Center Settings

Under Macro Settings, choose Disable all macros except digitally signed macros and tick Trust access to the VBA project object model:

Word 2010, Macro Settings

Under Message Bar, make sure Show the Message Bar... is selected (this should be the case, as it's the default value):

Word 2010, Message Bar

You can now close Word 2010 and the installation can take place. It is assumed you have downloaded the latest version of Wordfast Classic and uncompressed the content of the downloaded ZIP file (if not, see How to download and unzip Wordfast). Double-click on the icon to start the installation.

You may see the following warning, if you have enabled Protected View in Word 2010. If so, click on the Enable Editing button:

Word 2010, Protected View

You will then see the following Security Warning. Do not click on the Enable Content button. Instead, click on the Macros have been disabled message:

Word 2010, Security Warning

In the next screen, click on the Enable Content button:

Word 2010, Enable Content

Then, click on Advanced Options:

Word 2010, Advanced Options

In the next screen, select Trust all documents from this publisher. This will let Word 2010 know Wordfast LLC is a trustworthy company.

Word 2010, Trust Publisher

The installation should then proceed automatically. If not, press Ctrl+Alt+W as instructed and you should see the following Congratulation message:

Word 2010, Congratulations

Wordfast will then close Word 2010 and start it again. Press Ctrl+Alt+W and you should see the Wordfast toolbar in Word's Quick Access Toolbar (QAT):

Word 2010, Toolbar in QAT

If you don't see the Wordfast toolbar, select the Add-ins tab and click on the Wordfast icon.
