I could reproduce similar behavior locally. It may have to something with your Word Settings. When you click new and it opens in MS Word, word treats it as unsafe because perhaps it is not saved. After you click it treats it as a safe document and things works for you. To make it work first time, you may have to go to Word (2010) -> File Menu -> ...

We experienced the same thing. I do not understand why this works in our environment, but it does. Open IE, go to "Tools > Internet Options > Connections > Lan Settings" and uncheck "Auto Detect Proxy".

I don't think you can do that, unless you do some local registry hacks on each machine that opens files with the content tyep text/plain in notepad instead of in the browser. The reason that you can open Office documents is that SharePoint uses ActiveX to invoke the office application with its ProgId. Notepad does not have any COM ProgId. You could make it ...

I've fixed it, or at least worked around it in a way that seems to solve all of our issues. When I added PDF icon support to our server, I used the following XML in the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\XML\DOCICON.XML file, as suggested in the linked KB article: <Mapping Key="pdf" Value="pdficon.gif" /> ...

After some researching I found this blog addressing "Could not open (url)": http://petervdberg.blogspot.com/2011/01/how-to-enable-save-and-send-option-in.html If you are using Windows 2008R2 this could be solution. I checked my machine and 'Desktop Experience' feature was already installed so I was unable to reproduce your problem.

If you examine the link to the document with IE developer tools you'll see that it is a hyperlink and a JavaScript function attached to the onClick event. The JavaScript function checks if ActiveX is supported in the client Web browser and if a particular client-side ActiveX component (IIRC something with "OpenDocuments") is available. This client-side ...

When you run a site collection in SharePoint 2010 mode, you are running with the 2010 feature set. Most 2013-specific features are not available when you are running in 2010 mode.

I don't believe that you can as you mentioned, the file name change constitutes a new file and a new version history. You could always check out the 2003 version and upon checking it back in, state the file has been converted to a new format and the history ends. MyDoc.doc and MyDoc.docx are different files even though they may be the same content so ...

After a fair amount of Google-fu I finally found a MS KB article that helped. You have to open Regedit.exe and add a new DWORD value OpenDocumentsReadWriteWhileBrowsing to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common\Internet and set it to 1. Now clicking on a link will open the file in edit mode, which is fine for my purposes.

This information is stored as an XmlDocument in the Content Type. The SPContentType has a property called XmlDocuments which is a collection of XmlDocument objects.

Please specify exactly what parameters have changed. Eg you changed to office 2010, but is outlook and SharePoint version the same? Also add a sceenshot showing the issue? I am still a bitnunclear on where SharePoint comes into the picture, other than being the trigger of the mail. This means your question is borderline off-topic. Depending on how you ...

I haven't seen anything such built. I think your only option is a custom WebDAV provider, even though I should not recommend that. Instead consider you current solution and incorporate Document Routing in your design. Let the user upload the document to ONE location and set the metadata, then use document routing forward the document to the correct ...

I just found the answer. Those fields are linked, but are hidden on the table by default. You must right click the table headers and click Unhide Columns... then select the hidden columns you desire to work with.

There are a few other commercial solutions that addresses SharePoint calendaring & scheduling needs - Bamboo Solutions' Calendaring product and Virto Ajax Calendar. CAVEAT: I do not work for the above companies.

I created a blog post about this today: Create a new document using Office Web Apps. ID is the URL to the document template that is associated with the content type. Ex.: http:// www.yourdomain.com/TeamSite/template.docx` SaveLocation is the location to the document library where the document needs to be saved. Ex: &SaveLocation=http:// ...

In my experience I have found a few things cause the slow down and login behaviors raised by the original question. Slow downs - may be caused by potentially performance configurations by the SharePoint admin (for ways to get the server changes made ref: Fine Tuning Your SharePoint 2010 Environment – Front End Optimizations) ; or by having lists with ...

The SharePoint / Office integration works best with Internet Explorer because the ActiveX that is required by many SharePoint components only runs in IE. Other browsers use different APIs. If you want the full functionality of Office with SharePoint you will need to use IE. IE 11 is actually not all that bad.

SharePoint is not be blamed for the varying behavior but it is the browsers. The browsers cannot be completely uniform in features and functions. Each has its own capabilities. The behavior also changes when using a different SharePoint and browser versions. The Open Document pop up we encounter only in IE browser. But we never encounter it in Chrome, ...

As you mentioned, "To open the file in Office client application you use the Edit link in the preview box no more “Edit in Microsoft Word”. This is the way to open/edit document into the Chrome Browser. As these browser supported but you will still face some difficulties as compare to IE. I would recommend always use IE unless their is requirement. Also ...

This is the same behavior in 2010 as well in Firefox and Chrome and I believe it is still one of the few remaining ActiveX controls in SharePoint. Since Firefox and Chrome don't have ActiveX, there isn't a way to show them, unless your Chrome users run IE Tab. Users must have Office 2010, Office 2007, or Microsoft Office 2003 with the latest service ...

You can use Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.dll .NET CSOM not only in SharePoint APPS, but also in other client solutions based on .NET. There are also more-specific .NET CSOM implementations for Silverlight and Windows Phone.

No it's not possible ootb, but you can get a better view if you synchronize the SharePoint calendar to the client software Outlook 2013. That way you are able to see both calendars side by side.

The problem is that OneDrive (formerly known as SkyDrive Pro) will not sync with a SharePoint 2010 server. The MS KB article 2904784 points out that if you intend to sync with a SharePoint 2010 server then you must use SharePoint 2010 Workspace for folder sync. OneDrive (SkyDrive) has been coded to disallow syncing between OneDrive and SharePoint 2010. ...
