Bug Description

calibre, version 1.21.0 (win32, isfrozen: True)
Conversion Error: Failed: Convert book 1 of 1 (ACT2010)

I am scanning a book into MS Word 2007 with Omnipage Ultimate. If I allow Omnipage to identify website or mailto links, the conversion of the book will fail with the following output. I am running Calbre 1.21 (64 bit) on 64-bit Windows 8.1. I also scanned the document without letting the links be identified and the source converted without complaint. I then attempted to convert a hyperlink directly in the .docx and loaded it into Calibre and tried to convert with the same error occurring.
