activeX error when starting a workflow from inside Microsoft Word

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have a Word 2007 document hosted on a local intranet SharePoint 2007 Server.
When i open the document inside Word 2007 and start a Collect Signature workflow (the word document has some signature lines included), the following ActiveX error si thrown:

Microsoft Office InfoPath
One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because either:

1) Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page, or
2) You have blocked a publisher of one of the controls.

As a result, the page might not display correctly.

I managed to find out that the error is generated because of the security level regarding ActiveX controls set on the INTERNET zone.
In the internet zone, all ActiveX controls are restricted to run, but in the LOCAL INTRANET zone are allowed.
Our company security policy does not permit changing the ActiveX settings in INTERNET zone.

If i navigate to the sharepoint site in Internet Explorer, the site is seen correctly in the LOCAL INTRANET zone

Can somebody give me a solution to be able to start the workflow process, without modifing security settings on the internet zone and without upgrading to O

InfoPath / ActiveX error when using person selector field in Word template off SharePoint document l

I have created an out-of-the-box document library on a SharePoint 2010 site.  I left Microsoft Word Document selected as the Document Template.  I then added a person or group column and a multiple lines of text column to the document library. I then went into Library Settings --> Advanced Settings and clicked on Edit Template, opening the template in Word.  I created my template and added the two new columns to the document.  I did this using the Quick Parts --> Document Property --> [column name] feature under the Insert tab in Word.  I then saved the template back to SharePoint. Upon opening the template or creating a new document from the template, I get the following dialog box: --------------------------- Microsoft Office InfoPath --------------------------- One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because either: 1) Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page, or 2) You have blocked a publisher of one of the controls. As a result, the page might not display correctly. --------------------------- OK   --------------------------- I've searched around (I believe fairly extensively) and have not run into anyone else with the same issue.  Some have mentioned a similar error when creating a custom document information panel in InfoPath, and suggested lowered ActiveX security setti

Using Dynamic Property inside Html Helper with Razor fires an error



I have the following with Razor:

@Html.GoogleAjax(View.GoogleAjaxKey, new String[,] { { "jquery", "1.4.2" } })

And the I get a strange error:

  'System.Web.Mvc.HtmlHelper<object>' has no applicable method named 'GoogleAjax' but appears to have an extension method by that name. Extension methods cannot be dynamically dispatched. Consider casting the dynamic arguments or calling the extension method without the extension method syntax.

What is strange is that it works fine using:

@Html.GoogleAjax("123", new String[,] { { "jquery", "1.4.2" } })

I tried the following code line:


And the key is displayed just fine so the problem is how I use the value of @View.GoogleAjaxKey into Html.GoogleAjax.

Do I need to change something on my Html Helper? Here it is:

    public static MvcHtmlString GoogleAjax(this HtmlHelper helper, String key, String[,] libraries) {

Nintex Workflow Error: No workflows are waiting for a BizTalk message [...] No processing has been d



I created a Workflow with Nintex Workflow 2007 (on SharePoint 2007) to send/receive data to BizTalk 2009. It worked fine already. But now I get the following error mesage in the EventViewer:

Nintex Workflow; Build: 11000 (http://ls457/_layouts/nintexworkflow/BiztalkHandler.ashx)
No workflows are waiting for a BizTalk message with message Id of 'GeneralAccessRequest_2010-08-23T15_00_04_44961212B370C554EDFAC41C1201ED6CEFB' on teamsite http://ls457/sites/testapp. No processing has been done.

What could that mean? Any ideas? I definitely changed nothing on the orchestration or BizTalk administration. The BizTalk action sends the data correctly to it's destination (database), but it seems that nintex doesn't receive any return data. I don't think it's a BizTalk problem, because in the BizTalk Message Tracking Database the Message is listet, so it has been sent correctly by BizTalk. But the handler probably has problems to find/receive this message.

Kind regards,


SharePoint 2010 Long Starting if start workflow programatically


In SharePoint 2010, I'm starting workflow #2 programatically from my workflow #1. See code below:

					SPList currentList = web.Lists[new Guid(ListId)];
					SPListItem currentListItem = currentList.GetItemById(ListItem);

					//resolve any lookup parameters
					string workflowId = base.ProcessStringField(WorkflowIdentifier);

					//find workflow association by name
					SPWorkflowAssociation workflowAssoc = currentList.WorkflowAssociations.GetAssociationByName(workflowId, Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture);

					if (workflowAssoc != null)
						//start the workflow
						SPWorkflow workflow = site.WorkflowManager.StartWorkflow(currentListItem, workflowAssoc, workflowAssoc.AssociationData, SPWorkflowRunOptions.Synchronous);

And workflow #2  will hang with Starting status (1-10 minutes), Then the workflow #2 status would be modified  to Completed.

I couldn't find how to start the workflow # 2 immediately and complete immediately without several minutes delay
