AutoTag in Windows 8.1

Overview

AutoTag causes Office 2013 to crash in Windows 8.1.

Resolution

This issue is actually the result of Microsoft's EMET (Ehanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit) preventing the AutoTag shim from loading with Office. This can be resolved by disabling the "Export Address Table Access Filtering" protection on winword.exe in EMET. Disabling that setting will allow AutoTag to load and run correctly.
