Not getting the Prompt in SP 2010 for "Read Only or Check Out and Edit" anymore.

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


     I am not getting the prompt for Read Only/edit any more, I am only able to"Open Save, cancel" when I open the file it opens in the native client in read only mode.

 Here are the specs.

Sharepoint 2010 Standard on windows 2008 64 bit. Ms Office 2007

Changes made 

  • Sharepoint server publishing Infrastructure Activated.
  • Changed the permissions to permissive to open the pdf files in the broswer.
  • Installed/Uninstalled Ms Office 2010 beta.

Any help or guidance is highly appreciated.
I had highly mentioned (edit documents/ single document only) etc to my users and now I am in a pickle.

InfoPath 2010 Not Allowing Default Parameters Anymore?

It appears that InfoPath 2010 no longer allows you to set the default parameter values for secondary WebService data sources before they are automatically called during the form startup. When you set up a secondary data source to a standard web service call that takes parameters, you get prompted for the sample values.  However, when you run the form, these sample values are not sent to the web service, as you would expect. Furthermore, because the secondary datasource is automatically called when the form starts up, you are not able to set the values before the automatic call because the rules processing occurs AFTER the initial call to the web service. I realize that I could do this in code in the Startup routine, but the problem is that we have users who want to stay away from coding and want to use the functionality of InfoPath and it's "easy to use interface" to be able to create forms.   Now I have to tell them that they need to start to learn C#? Am I doing something wrong here?    Or is this a big oversight on this release of InfoPath? Microsoft: If you are listening...could you please comment on this?   I would consider this a bug.

Sharepoint 2010, Constant prompt for credentials to edit office documents in a fqdn setup


Is there a solution to resolve the constant "Prompts" For user id's and passwords when a person tries to open/launch/edit office documents from sharepoint 2010.

My setup: sharepoint fqdn in the domain sp.domainname.local, The sharepoint server is a member of this internal domain. In dns I have local zone of sp.domainname.com with a cname that points to the internal sharepoint server. There is no issue in users accessing the server both internal and external, The issue arises when Office documents are launched from SP2010.

In central admin I have configured the alternate access mappings to be http://sp

I have also tried putting the fqdn dns name of the sharepoint server in IE8 trusted zone but
no luck, I still get credential prompts.

I think the issue might be that Office does not see that the files are coming from the fqdn of sp.domainname.com so hence the prompts.

Trying to fix this as right now its a total pita. I found some previous posts on this issue with SP2007 but found nothing that really addresses this in SP2010.

Thanks Paul

Login prompt when opening office documents in SharePoint 2010 library


Environemnt : SharePoint 2010
Windows based authentication being used for site. All SharePoint servers part of the same network.

When i try opening office documents from document library( .docx, xlsx), SharePoint prompts for login credentials even though i am already logged into the website, worse part is that it prompts me for credentials for every document that i open. Also any files other then PDF opens up in the local machine's office application (word or excel) instead of in the browser.

I had migrated this webspplicatoin from MOSS and then did a visual upgrade as well to it, when i verified in the MOSS version of the site after i am log into the site ones it never prompts for login credentails ever when opening an office document.

Any body knows why this is happening.


Visual Studio C# 2010 Express and Web Developer 2010 Express are not supported anymore?


I've wrote the comprehensive post within my blog: http://weblogs.asp.net/vasilysokolov/archive/2010/10/26/annoying-2-remake-microsoft-russia-is-simply-not-supporting-visual-studio-express-editions-at-all-and-my-last-hope-scott-guthrie-is-on-vacation.aspx

In brief words everything is simple:

1. I've downloaded free Visual Studio C# 2010 Express and Visual Studio Web Developer 2010 Express

2. I've successfully installed these versions.

3. I've tried registration online - and got the appropriate keys which I've used for registration.

Finally all the keys I've got are not valid for the system - and after 30 days evaluation (for free version?) period all these products are not running anymore because all the keys I am providing from online registration are invalid.

What can you suggest me for fixing this problem?



I am working on a SharePoint 2010 installation. Our plan is to deploy SharePoint to external users without forcing them to use Silverlight. So far I have disabled Silverlight on the web application using Powershell but anytime you load some pages on the site it is still displaying a message box with the title - This copy of the Silverlight plu-in has expired and the body of the message says - The version of the Silverlight plug-in installed on your system is no longer valid.  Please go to http://go2.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=128377 for the latest version.

This happens on client PC's with old version of Silverlight.  I am aware of the advantages of Silverlight but the customer just doesn't like it.

What is the best way to deactivate Silverlight please on a SharePoint 2010 installation so that it doesn't prompt users for installation or updates?

sharepoint-2010 how to open files that prompt for save or cancel

In SharePoint 2010, there is a new setting at the web application level called Browser File Handling (Fig. 1). You get to this setting with these steps:
.Central Admin > Application Management > Manage Web Applications
.Single-click the row of your web application
.Click General Settings in the ribbon
.Scroll down to Browser File Handling and select Permissive

Browser File Handling settings

By default, this is set to Strict when creating a web application. However, this causes issues in many ways related to opening certain files from SharePoint. The most obvious example is with PDFs. When set to Strict, a PDF can only be Saved (downloaded), but in Permissive mode, the PDF can be opened directly. For instance, here are the different results when clicking on a PDF in a SharePoint 2010 Document Library:

Opening a PDF in Strict mode

Opening a PDF in Permissive mode

As you can see, in Strict mode, I am prompted to Save or Cancel In Permissive mode, the PDF immediately opens without being prompted and in my case, my PDFs open in the browser by default (this is a setting you can change).

Another way this issue manifests itself is when opening versions in an InfoPath form library. Someone posted this issue on the forums, and when I didn''t experience the same issue, I immediately thought of Browser File Handling. Mine was alre

ASP.NET, HTML, JavaScript Snippet Support (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

This post covers another useful improvement in VS 2010 - HTML/ASP.NET/JavaScript snippet support. Snippets allow you to be more productive within source view by allowing you to create chunks of code and markup that you can quickly apply and use in your application with a minimum of character typing.

Visual Studio has supported the concept of "snippets" for VB and C# in previous releases - but not for HTML, ASP.NET markup and JavaScript. With VS 2010 we now support snippets for these content types as well.

Clean Web.Config Files (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

.NET 4 includes a new version of the CLR, and a new .NET 4 specific machine.config file (which is installed side-by-side with the one used by .NET 2, .NET 3 and .NET 3.5).

The new .NET 4 machine.config file now automatically registers all of the ASP.NET tag sections, handlers and modules that we've added over the years, including the functionality for:

.ASP.NET Dynamic Data
.ASP.NET Routing (which can now be used for both ASP.NET WebForms and ASP.NET MVC)
.ASP.NET Chart Control (which now ships built-into ASP.NET V4)
What this means is that when you create a new "Empty ASP.NET application" project in VS 2010, you'll find that the new default application-level web.config file is now clean and simple:

Architecture Tools in VSTS 2010

Designing new functionality on existing applications can be daunting. There are always differences between the original design and the current implementation.

The new Architecture tools within Visual Studio Team System 2010 help you understand the application you have, design new functionality you need, and validate that your design and your implementation do not deviate.

VB and C# enhancements in VS 2010

In Visual Studio 2010, we've made several enhancements to our two most popular languages, Visual Basic and C#, to give programmers all the tools they need to build great software no matter which language they prefer.

The Visual Basic team focused on adding productivity features to the language so developers can get more done in fewer lines of code. The most common customer request for Visual Basic is to remove the underscore ("_") character when breaking a code statement across multiple lines in most cases. Visual Basic 10 introduces implicit line continuation, which removes the need for the underscore character in most cases.

Code Optimized Web Development Profile (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

When you first run VS 2010 it prompts you to select an IDE profile to use. The profile you select will configure how tool windows are displayed/docked in the IDE by default and set the default keyboard shortcuts. You can then customize any of these settings by using the Tools->Options menu within the IDE and then override/change them. You can also later reset your profile and pick a different one by choosing the Tools->Import and Export Settings menu command.

VS 2010 and .NET 4 Series

VS 2010 and .NET 4 are the next major releases of our developer tools and framework. Together they contain a ton of new functionality and improvements that I think you'll really like, and which make building applications of all types easier, faster and better. The improvements range from nice small tweaks to major, major enhancements - and can be found across the .NET Framework, the languages, and the IDE.

ASP.NET 4 and Visual Studio 2010 Web Development Beta 2 Overview

Many exciting changes for ASP.NET are coming in the .NET Framework version 4. This document gives an overview of many of the new features that are included in the Beta 2 release of the .NET Framework 4 and of Visual Studio 2010.

Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2

This is a big deal. This isn't ".NET 3.6" - there are a lot of improvements of .NET 4, and it's not just "pile on a bunch of features so you get overwhelmed." I've been working with and talking to many of the teams involved and even though it's a cheesy thing to say, this is a really customer-focused release.

ASP 4 - Whirlwind Tour around .NET 4 (and Visual Studio 2010) Beta 1

There's a lot of stuff that's new and added in .NET 4, but not in that "overwhelming-I-need-to-relearn-everything" way. More in that, "oh, this is way easier/simpler now" way. Like, moving data around with ADO.NET DataServices is easy, binding with client templates is easy, there's F# if you need it, the "dynamic" keyword if you need it, Silverlight's already installed, oh, and the parallel stuff will freak you out, but in a good way.

Short Overview of SharePoint Features in Visual Studio 2010

As you probably know, Visual Studio 2010 was announced earlier this week and it contains a lot of cool features and project templates for SharePoint developers. Below is a short overview for some of the SharePoint development related features and project templates.

How to get more information about the exceptions that can happen in SharePoint 2010 projects?

In case there is an exception anywhere in the SharePoint 2010 project (most common place an exception would happen is during deployment of your SharePoint project, custom deployment configuration or custom deployment steps), there's a registry key EnableDiagnostics available for you to use.
