  • Are you trying to open the document within Office Web Apps or the Client Application? If client application, what version of Office are you running on your workstation? – James Hunter Jun 26 '16 at 16:49
  • no i want to open them in word (client application) – maria1368 Jun 28 '16 at 4:21
  • What version of Microsoft Office are you running on your workstation? Based on the error message, this could be part of the problem. – James Hunter Jun 28 '16 at 13:07

This functionality will not work in Chrome. You'll need to use IE or FireFox.


Try to add ?web=1 behind the document path (... .doc?Web=1).

Let me know if that fixes your problem.
