SharePoint 2007 documents not opening in Office 2007

March 24th, 2010 No comments

Our company Intranet was deployed on Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 and has been in operation for a few months. I recently had a user that reported that they were experiencing difficulties opening documents from their Team Site. A quick check revealed this problem actually affected all documents for the user and not just those in their Team Site. When the user clicked on any SharePoint document to open it they were presented with the dialog box with options to open the document in 'Read Only' or 'Edit' mode. Opening any document in 'Read Only' mode opened the document in the relevant Microsoft Office application but obviously did not allow them to save it directly back into SharePoint. Opening any document in 'Edit' mode failed to launch the Microsoft Office application associated with that document. This was the case for all Microsoft Office document types.


KiXtart script to enable Outlook Anywhere or RPC-HTTPS

At work, people were using VPN to access their email out of the office, but I have always thought that logging into a corporate network via VPN for most users is an extra hassle that they could probably do without. I had considered setting up RPC over HTTPS for Exchange 2003 but during a meeting regarding disaster recovery it became evident it was actually now a necessity. So, after configuring the server for RPC-HTTPS I had the small problem of deploying the settings to Outlook clients en masse.


Regkey to enable & disable Outlook 2003 cached mode

Pre Microsoft office 2003 SP3, when creating a new MAPI email account in outlook 2003 the default setting was to "Use Cached Exchange Mode". I have noticed that after installing SP3 the default seems to now be disabled when creating an email account.
