Is this view requires administrative permission.

Suppose i have a workflow for each document in the library,If i copy in bulk documents to the library.will the workflow be attached by default.

SharePoint upload files from windows explorer and emails from outlook by drag and drop

  
Guys, I need to have this functionality to upload files and mails by drag and drop, now sharepoint allows it by having that folderview in IFrame which takes the dropped item, but this does not allow files with spcial characters due to http URL related issue. How can I customize or program this to allow files with special chars in name, if not possible then how can I rename before the drop is over ? thanks, ram    

Drag and drop to windows explorer of SharePoint site leads to 0KB file

  

I believe this issue got by so many people already.

We have a sharepoint site running on HTTPS protocol. There are some scenarios we get multiple documents from customers and need to move them to SharePoint to share them across organization. For this, what we are doing is, we are opening the library and from Actions menu -> Open in Windows Explorer.

The windows explorer is opening fine and when we tried to move the files from local system to windows explorer of the SharePoint site, it is failing to copy data and showing 0KB moved. And at the windows taskbar it is giving notification like "Got network delayed write fail message." when we are doing this on XP. On any other OS, there is no notification and not moving the file.

We are not able to understand the problem. Why it is not able to move, everytime it is copying 0KB.

We can do using upload multiple files feature, but we have to go back and forth between folders and it will slow down the process.

Please help me out, why it is happening... It is not network issue at all for sure.

thanks

Drag drop functinality not working on Explore View control for file containing special characters in

  
We have created a control which uses explorer view control for file drag and drop. This functinality works fine for a file having filename without special characters but it gives an error if we drag and drop a file having special characters in the file name. The reason for this is Sharepoint uses WebDAV protocol for file transfer to the Sharepoint document library and WebDAV protocol has limitation that it does'nt accept file with special characters. Please let me know the way how I can accomplish drag and drop of file with special characters in file name, onto Explorer View control with WebDAV.

Windows Explorer View opening incorrectly

  

Hi,

One of my users is experiencing an issues with opening the windows explorer view in Sharepoint. At first she was having an issue with opening pdfs. One of our help desk associates noticed she had both Adobe Reader and Acrobat installed so he uninstalled Reader and that seemed to fix the issue with opening pdfs. The user then called back to report that Windows Explorer is opening as a "website" when launched from sharepoint.

I had the help desk install the Software for Web Folders update at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=17c36612-632e-4c04-9382-987622ed1d64&displaylang=en  then I had them install the 2007 Office hotfix available at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943337/en-us as suggested in another post. These installs did not fix the issue and she is also unable to drag and drop files from explorer view and create shortcuts.

We are using..WSS 3.0, Windows XP Pro, Office 2003, IE 6

This seems to only be happening for this

Can WebDAV Explorer view be enabled for a MOSS 2007 Site on Port 443 (SSL)?

  

Issue:  When accessing the Explorer view in SharePoint 2007 libraries, the FPRPC protocol (instead of WebDAV) is used.  Users want to perform certain functions in Explorer View (like send-to compressed folder) that are not available or do not work in their FPRPC view.

Background:  The site is on port 443 (SSL), users accessing the site have Windows XP and IE 8.

I understand from the white paper http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=c523ac7a-5724-48be-b973-641e805588f4 that if a site is hosted on a port other than 80, the Explorer View will be forced to use FPRPC.  The white paper also states "there is no workaround for this behavior".

However, when I access the site using Windows 7 Enterprise and IE 8, the WebDAV protocol is used and all of the functions work.

Questions:

  • Is there a workaround that can force Windows XP to use WebDAV on an SSL site?
  • Or is Windows 7 Enterprise required to force WebDAV? 

I have searched the fo

RemotingException when drag and drop from one instance to a second instance of Windows Forms applica

  

I have a Windows Forms sample app that we use to illustrate drag and drop functionality with our external application. The sample app contains two list boxes, a DragSource and a DropTarget. The DragSource is populated with data that can be dragged and dropped to the DropTarget, or to our external application. The sample app is written in Visual Studio 2008 using a Windows Forms Application that links to a legacy C++ library.

What works:

1. Dragging and dropping between the two listboxes in the same instance

2. Dragging and dropping between the sample app and our external application

What doesn't work and hope to get your feedback on:

1. Dragging and dropping between the sample app and another instance of the sample app fails to read data from the MemoryStream and indicates the following exception: "A first chance exception of type 'System.Runtime.Remoting.RemotingException' occurred in mscorlib.dll"

2. Dragging from the DragSource indicates the following exceptions although the DropTarget and our external application are able to read the stream and display the information.

A first chance exception of type 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException' occurred in System.Windows.Forms.dll; A first chance exception of
