We have recently upgraded to SharePoint 2010 from a stable 2007 application. In 2007, we were utilizing Link-to Document content type to link to fileshare documents via UNC path. We built several applications around this functionality.
Now, as we upgrade applications, we have found that the Link-to documents no longer perform the link redirect. If we click one of these documents, it simply takes us to a blank .aspx page that is the same name as the document title.
We were wondering, since the newlink.aspx hack seems to be fairly well-known, if anyone knows how the aspx redirect page is generated. I'm unable to find anything else in our 14 hive that suggests that it's identity is a file link redirect template. Also, if anyone else has had this problem and was able to resolve with a codeless solution, could you share any tips?
I have read the canon of literature concerning this issue, and I was unable to find any that seemed to really address what we are seeing on our end. I greatly appreciate any assistance that any of you gurus can provide.
