Thumbnails Disapperar in Slide Library

I am testing a SP 2010 Slide Library. After publishing slides to the library, thumbnails appear normal to me, but others logged in see a box with a red x. If they open the PPT file and save it back, they then see a normal thumbnail, but I get the box with the red x. Anyone have ideas on the cause and correction for this problem?

Running the "Publish WebSite" option in VS

A few months ago I ran accross a web site that explained the advantage of running a build on your website via the Publish WebSite optoin but I really did not pay much attention to it back then because I was just starting out.  Now I have two large website projects I am working on that take a very long time to load a page that was changed or any page after the server is restarted. One thing I do remember from that site was that doing the publish on my webpage would fix this long load time. I have tried to find that page (or other pages that explain the publish process and how to use it) but I can't everything I come up with is on uploading websites and such but not on the VS process, I tried using the built in VS help but even after a reinstall it is broken and says the help is not installed. Can anyone either anwser the following (probibily simple questisons) or point me to a website that can? 1. What do all the options in the Publish Website do? 2.  What is the difference between running the Publish Website and running the Build WebSite?

Sharepoint slide library adding functionality.

The slide library in Sharepoint allows you to upload Powerpoint slides to it, then to copy a slide to a new presentation and edit it, or check it out so you can edit it and check back in the changes. Unfortunately the ability to check out multiple slides at once to edit is not possible, only the ability to copy them to a new presentation, so you lose all data stored with them.  I am trying to find a way to be able to check out multiple slides at once, then be able to check them in when you have made changes.   My questions are basically:  Can I add a button to the Sharepoint slide library interface? How can I interact with the client machine in terms of opening Powerpoint and getting them to be able to check out the slides? I have the Sharepoint VSTO tools installed and this must be for Sharepoint 2007. Thanks

Internet Exporer Crashes when viewing a SharePoint 2010 Slide library

I have 3 environments  (Test, Development & Production) in which this issue happens on all. Whether i create a new blank or use and existing Slide library; upload more than one Powerpoint slide in the library and i put my mouse cursor on any place other than the ribbon interface, Internet explorer jams and stops working. IE restarts itself and brings you back to the library but then does the same thing if you put your cursor anywhere in the sharepoint view. We had tested using IE without addons and it worked correctly. We then ran internete explorer and disabled all addons one by one until all were disabled and the issue was still occurring. We had changed a number of settings and found that disabling "active scripting" in the IE settings also made the issue dissapear. The issue is that we want active scripting and all add ons to work aswell.  We also updated Silverlight  from 4 with a build of 3.0.4 from the Microsoft Website.   (Internet Explroer 8 is the version running on Windows 7 Enterprise edition) The issue IE creates in the application log:  Event ID: 1000 Task Category: (100) Level: Error Keyword: Classic Faulting application name: IEXPLORE.EXE, version: 8.0.7600.16385, time stamp: 0x4a5bc69e Faulting module name: mshtml.dll, version: 8.0.7600.16490, time stamp: 0x4b2c9557

Visual C++ Runtime Library error when opening documents in Powerpoint 2010 from Sharepoint link



I posted this question on the Office Powerpoint forum and did not get much response so thought I would try here.   Here is the link to that post  http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/pptshare/thread/36a58d07-b1ad-4935-a14e-086dae8cb786

I'm running Windows 7 with Office 2010.  We have a Sharepoint 2007 server.  Whenever I click a link from our Intranet site I get the error "this application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.  Please contact the applications's support team for more information."  It asks if I want to open in safe mode and I say yes and it never opens. 

During testing I also find that if I have a blank powerpoint .ppt file that I try to save to the same document library on the same site it works fine, but if I try to save a blank .pptx file to the site I get the same runtime error. 

This does not happen on all powerpoint or office documents being opened from the Intranet.  If I boot to safe mode it works fine.    If I copy the files local they work fine.  Any ideas on how to fix it?

Thanks so much!!!

Link from Document Library to UNC Path


Can anyone tell me if it is possible to create a link from a document library to a UNC path?

Thanks in advance.



Document icon and title link in document library don't navigate on click for one user using IE8


On a pretty vanilla SharePoint document library, a particular user browsing with IE8 can click on the document icon or the title link for a Word document but nothing happens.  Other document types were not tested, so I can't say if it was specific to Word documents. The user can however pull up the menu at the right of the title and select "Open in Microsoft Office Word" which will open the document in Word and is then able to modify and save the document.  The behavior has not been observed from other users using IE8.  I've reviewed the users Internet Options settings and didn't see anything out of the ordinary and tried disabling pop-up blocker and other potentially interfering features without changing the observed behavior.  The user is from a different location and his configuration may or may not represent the stock configuration at that site, so I can't dismiss it without determining whether it would affect all users at his site.  Word 2007 is installed on the user's machine.

Does this sound familiar?  Any suggestions for troubleshooting?

Picture library with option of a default picture



We're using the picture library to create a classified adds section. An image is uploaded with metadata for title, price, details etc

were looking at a way to supply a default image if the user does no have an image of the item to upload.

The first hope was that a default file path could be added to the input type 'file' box but looking into this its not allowed for security issues.

anyone know any examples of using a javascript button that says use default image that on clicking could fill in the input type file box?

Or a different way of achieving this ?


Add Document link missing from library



I have a SharePoint 2010 farm that was upgraded from MOSS 2007.

I have noticed that in some of my document libraries, there is a tick box next to each item in the list, and an Add Document link at the bottom of the list, but in other Document libraries, the tick box and link are not there.

How do I get these to display for all document libraries?
