Word could not communicate with Zotero

This discussion was created from comments split from: Word can't connect with Zotero.
  • Hi, I'm experiencing the same error message.
    How do I rectify the problem?
  • Can you provide a Report ID?
  • I couldn't generate a 'Report ID'. The exact error message I received was "Word could not communicate with Zotero. Please ensure that Zotero is open and try again."
    I'm using Zotero version 5.0.84 and Word version 16.35.

    There are five buttons on the Zotero tab in Word: 1) Add/edit citation, 2) Add/edit bibliography, 3) Document preferences, 4) Refresh and 5) Unlink citations.
    The same error message pops up when I press any of the five buttons.
    And yes, my Zotero is open.
