I have a farm where for every new site collection the "Open Documents in Client Applications by Default" feature is disabled. So when ever a user opens an excel or word file it will try and open it in the browser instead of the client application. As the Office web applications are not installed (and as far as i'm aware have never been) it throws up an error in the browser:
Unable to process the request.
Wait a few minutes and try performing this operation again.
So far I have been enabling the "Open Documents in Client Applications" on a site collection straight after creating it but how can I enable it by default for any new site collection that I create?
