Any document (docx) I open or create I am able to to edit it only once. The following attempts open the document in "Read-Only" mode. I am able to overwrite the document. enter image description here

I've tried the following

  • Add the site to "Trusted Sites"
  • Compatability Mode
  • Sign-out of all accounts in office applications
  • Add FSSHTTPOff DWORD to the registry
  • Open the application from IE 11, 10 and 9
  • Modified Protected View Options in the trust center

These are some things I've noticed

  • I am able to open it in "edit" mode once from each unique device
  • I am able to open the same document in "edit" mode once using "https" and once using "http"

Things you may like to know

  • The site has both forms based and windows based authentication
  • The site might have had its SQL database moved between servers
