A user recently started getting the following error when using Office Edition Word add-in to try and open (and subsequently edit) a mail merge template:

An internal server error has occured while processing your request.


I noticed there is a single question on the community page detailing the same question recently, but without an answer. Has anyone else experienced this?

The number is API version, I've never heard about a fractional though. Can you try inspecting the Visual Basic code behind the plugin? Try to find this URL and change to "26.0" for example. – eyescream Feb 5 '13 at 19:57
I actually just got word that the issue was a password issue (missing security token). Sometimes I forget to test the easiest solution first. – Michael Welburn Feb 5 '13 at 20:09
Eh, same here ;) Please consider answering the question yourself & marking as accepted? That way it'll go off the radar. – eyescream Feb 5 '13 at 22:10
Will do -- looks like I need to wait a few days to accept my own answer – Michael Welburn Feb 6 '13 at 5:44

The answer in this particular case was the user forgetting to append their security token to their password :)
