A client of ours recently purchased 5 desktops with Windows 7 and Office 2007.ÃÂ They use Sharepoint to share all documents for their company. The computers that have Windows XP on them can browse the Sharepoint site, open documents (read only or edit), and chose to Save or Save As.ÃÂ A new window pops open with their current file path of the Sharepoint Document Library so they can save the file in the same folder they opened it from.ÃÂ I have tested this with Office 2003 and 2007 (Word and Excel) on XP and it always works. The 5 new desktops running Windows 7 cannot do this.ÃÂ When a user opens a document by browsing to it from Internet Explorer and chooses to Save or Save As, they are kicked back to their last successful save point (usually My Documents or Desktop). The current work around is mapping a drive to the root Document Library directory and having them traverse through the folders to save it back in the original location. I've tried changing the Check Out save settings in Word 2007 and Excel 2007 to edit directly on the server, but I run into the same problem.ÃÂ I've also made sure that IE sees the site as a Local Intranet site and Protected Mode is off. Any help would be appreciated.ÃÂ Thanks in advance.
