I have Win8, IE 10, Office 2010, trying to open/edit document from Sharepoint 2007, and I received: "The document could not be opened for editing. A Windows Sharepoint services compatible application could not be found to edit the document"

This happened ever since I used a new machine. Previously there was no problem to access the same files using Win7 IE9 & Office 2007.

I have done the followings to troubleshoot but still no good: 1. Make sure IE 10 is running in 32bit mode 2. Checked the Adds-on and the SharePoint Export Database Launcher, SharePoint OpenDocument Class, and SharePoint Stssync Handler are all enabled

Anyone got the similar issue? Appreciate to any help.

Try to add your Sharepoint site in IE10 Compatibility view. Sorry, not the answer, just giving suggestions. – Fox Feb 1 '13 at 12:57
