Currently have a SharePoint 2013 on premise system, users are running Windows 7.
The idea is to use SharePoint to store AutoCad drawings, (.dwg).
Out of the box, when opening a dwg file from SharePoint via Internet Explorer, you are prompted to download the file to your downloads folder.
Ideally, we want to be able to open the file straight from SharePoint, enabling users to save directly back, rather than manually re-uploaded the drawing file.
Struggling to make it work this way...
I've added a MIME type to IIS for image/vnd.dwg (used fiddler to check the mime type in the header). I've change the web app to use permissive mode rather than strict (for testing..) - however, files are still being prompted to be downloaded.
Is there anything else I can try?
P.S the test machines opening the files do have AutoCad installed!
