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

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


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!!!

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.

Currency and number column error with office 2007 document formats in SharePoint 2010 library

Hi there,



The following error occurred within a SharePoint 2010 document library:

As I tried to test out the new SharePoint 2010 environment I changed the metadata from a few documents within a document library. I noticed that the data from the currency und number field was incorrect from a few documents. The numbers looked like that the decimal separator were ignored. For an example: 123.456,78 was saved as 12.345.678.

At first I thought it could be a language incompabilty but if that would be the case: Why would there be other documents which show the correct number?


I created another document library to recreate this error. And there I noticed the real reason: Every time I changed these fields from a document which was saved in the office 2007 format the error occurred. The metadata from the documents in the office 2003 format were correct.


Has anyone a similar problem or got an idea how to solve this problem?

Session State throws error in ASP.NET Site Pages for SharePoint 2010 portal using Visual Studio 2010


I'm developing Visual Studio 2010 solution for site pages. I’ve created Site Pages in SharePoint 2010 and I’m trying to access Session variables in code behind in ASP.NET but it throws the following error.

Session state can only be used when enableSessionState is set to true, either in a configuration file or in the Page directive. Please also make sure that System.Web.SessionStateModule or a custom session state module is included in the <configuration>\<system.web>\<httpModules> section in the application configuration.

Long delay opening Word documents from SharePoint 2007 with Office 2010


The first time a document is opened it's fine, opens in just a few seconds.

Subsequently, there is a long delay (about 20 seconds) in the "Contacting server for information..." step.

This happens to all users and all documents, each one will open fast the first time then slowly the second and subsequent times (until, we think, the app pool is recycled - there is no schedules iisreset/reboot).

This does not happen when using Office 2007.

IE6 and 7 exhibit the same behaviour.

copy / move pdf file in documents library sharepoint 2010



I have a document library that contains many folders with different documents.

The library contains various content types.

When I try to copy or move a pdf document from folder to another  folder. the pdf document is copied, but without his meta-data.
 and the content type the file becomes to  default content type of system, to  "document."

Copying is done by explorer window
 (ie the documents library open the document library explorer Explorer And where we do copying or moving documents .)

It should be noted that when doing "copy to" or "move to" of documents and type Microsoft Office the meta- data yes  copied properly.

The problem applies only to the pdf files.

How do I make a copy or move of the pdf document with his meta-data  by explorer window?

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Error when installing .NET Framework 4.0


For some reason I'm unable to install .NET Framework 4.0. I downloaded the stand-alone install file from Microsoft Download Centre after the web installer didn't work but it still doesn't work. Next I tried removing all the previous installatiosn of .NET Framework using the Cleanup Tool found on here - http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2008/08/28/8904493.aspx - and clearing the TEMPS folder but it didn't change anything.

Every time I try to install .NET Framework 4.0 I get this message:

"Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Runtime Error!

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information."
