Word2MediaWikiPlus_Installer "Install or update macro" button leads to:
"Run-time error '5941': The requested member of the collection does not exist."

Included images show what the initial error message looks like (bug_screen_1.bmp) and what is displayed when I click on 'debug' (bug_screen_2.bmp).

    I've found how to fix this in word 2007, not sure it will work with earlier versions. when the 5941 error msg pops up, i get a button which says "debug". click on that (if you get it) and it will run visual basic, with the error highlighted. what the error appears to be is that your normal template (normal.dotm in word 2007) isn't found by word2mediawikiplus, because it is looking for normal1.dot. so, where it says "normal1.dot" in the highlighted area, change that to "normal.dotm" and run the macro again (press f5). this should fix it. i got another error msg when i did this the first time, but i just ran the macro again and it seemed to work. good luck
