SharePoint 2010 prompts to save PDF documents when opening.

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


Our users are being prompted to save PDF documents when clicking on them in SharePoint 2010.  We set the 'Browser File Handling' setting to 'Permissive' for the Web Application, but we are still being prompted for some of the PDF files.  Some PDF files open fine, though.  Doug

Publishing SharePoint 2010 via TMG 2010 SP1, Cant save any documents.

Hi, I have setup the publishing of a SharePoint site through TMG and appeared to have no issues. I am able to check documents in and out that I have uploaded but cannot save any to document libraries. I cant edit any docs and write them back to the library. It comes up with "document not saved" or that the doc is "Locked for editing by someone else." I realise there are a lot of variables involved in the setup here and wish to be pointed in the right direction to finding a fix. I have turned on monitoring in TMG and every connection I make is allowed and appears to be fine. I have looked at logging on SharePoint but cannot find the right one to turn on? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Mark 

How to save Office 2007 documents to SharePoint 2010 sites

Following website helps with saving a Office 2010 document to SharePoint 2010, but how to do it with Office 2007? http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/word-help/save-a-document-to-sharepoint-from-office-2010-HA010380214.aspx  Kenny_I

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.


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.

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



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!!!

Publish Office 2007 documents with metadata to SharePoint 2010?

Hi. I have SharePoint 2010 Enterprise based Intranet solution. We are publishing office 2007 documents to various document libraries there. When uploading documents normally to the document library, I can enter managed metadata to the documents which are later sorted and filtered by this metadata. But how can I enter metadata at the point where I'm publishing the document(Publish->Document Management Server)? I can get the document management pane to show my metadata -column in word as a textbox after the document is published, but the textbox is colored grey and says that I should modify that data on the server i.e. from sharepoint.
