The documents on share point will open in 'Read Only' mode even though i try to open in 'Edit' mode.
I have found this solution on stack overflow site, which indeed helped me to resolve a problem where I try to open a document at my workplace with Office 2010 documents on Sharepoint. The original link is also posted at the end of my post.
- On the client computer experiencing the issue click on "RUN" then type "RegEdit".
- go to this path
- Right click and create new "DWORD" entry and give it a name of "FSSHTTPOff"
- Double click the new entry and enter 1 for the value.
Hope this helps !!
