I am in process preparing an OS image for re-image of 10k+ workstations. As part of the image, I am attempting to include an optimized copy of Internet Explorer 11 for use with SharePoint 2010. These are the following add-ins I would like to include. Am I missing, forgetting, or applying something that is incompatible?

  • Internet Explorer Add-Ins

    • SharePoint OpenDocuments Class

      • "ActiveX control that enables users of Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 to create documents based on a specified template, or to edit documents using their associated applications."

      • When a page that contains a view of a document library opens, code in the file OWS.js determines whether Microsoft Office is installed and, if it is, instantiates the control."

      • This control is defined in the OWSSUPP.dll file, a dynamic-link library (DLL) that is installed in the %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office14\ directory on the client computer during Microsoft Office Setup.

    • SharePoint OpenXMLDocuments

      • "An ActiveX control that enables users of Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 to create XML documents or forms based on a specified template, or to edit XML documents or forms using their associated applications."

      • Unknown if Office is required for control instantiation. InfoPath is mentioned: One implementation of this control is defined in inlaunch.dll, a dynamic link-library (DLL) that is installed on the client computer during Microsoft InfoPath 2010 Setup.

    • SharePoint ExportDatabaseLauncher

      • An ActiveX control that enables a user to create or open a database that contains data from a list in Microsoft SharePoint Foundation

      • When a page that contains a view of a list opens, the _ExportToDatabase function is called, which is defined in the OWS.js file. This function creates the control on the page and exports the list.

      • This control is defined in OWSSUPP.dll, a dynamic-link library (DLL) that is installed in the %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office14\ directory on the client computer during Microsoft Office 2010 Setup.

    • SharePoint SpreadsheetLauncher

      • An ActiveX control that enables a user to import lists from spreadsheets, or to verify whether a compatible spreadsheet application is available for list export in Microsoft SharePoint Foundation

      • When a user clicks Export to Excel on the List Tools ribbon on a page that contains a list, the EnsureSSImporter function in INIT.js is called to verify that a version of the control is present on the client. Then the ExportList function in OWS.js is called to export the list.

    • SharePoint Stssync Handler

      • An ActiveX control that provides a method for returning the name of the application that is used to synchronize events lists and contacts lists in Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 with a messaging application such as Microsoft Outlook 2010.

    • Microsoft Office Visio 12 Diagram Launch Control or DiagramLauncher Control

      • An ActiveX control that enables a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation user to create a Microsoft Visio 2010 diagram from a list if Visio 2010 is installed on the client computer.

      • This control is defined in DGRMLNCH.dll, a dynamic-link library (DLL) that is installed in the %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office14\ directory on the client computer when Visio 2010 is installed.

      • When a user clicks Create Visio Diagram on the List Tools ribbon on a page that contains a list, the ExportDiagram function in OWS.js is called. This function creates the control and uses the control to export a diagram.

      • Verified http://bit.ly/UqNQRM (MSDN)

The majority (if not all) of these controls are installed during Office 20xx installation. This http://bit.ly/1nkmR5A MSDN article lists, in further detail, the above controls and others. I am continuing to investigate these other controls, which I have listed below:

  • CopyCtl Control
  • FFWinPlugin Plug-in
  • ListNet Control
  • OISClientLauncher Control
  • Importing Contacts Using the Spreadsheet Launcher Control
  • TaskLauncher Control

I will add that information to this question, if you have any details please let me know. I will be closing this question after I have determined if a full installation of Office is needed or if the libraries mentioned above can be deployed to a workstation in an minimalist office install profile.

  • What is your question? Great information! Shouldn't this be a wiki article instead of a question? – Dennis G Aug 31 '15 at 10:45

Here are couples of:

Microsoft Office List aka Office Data Connectivity Components aka STSLIST.DLL aka AccessDatabaseEngine.exe if your users need Datasheet View (2010 generation)
