Problem adding Sharepoint Web Share to My Network Places (Help Please!)

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

I'm having a unique problem I think... I've googled this every which way I could think of but haven't seen anyone have the same problem.

Here is what is happening. I have a client uses My Network Places and have created sharepoint webshare "shortcuts" in my network places. However on one particular computer instead of it creating a webshare it is creating a UNC shortcut.

What I am doing is the following.

1) Open My Network Places

2) Click the Add a Network Place

3) Choose the option for "Another network location or website"

4) I enter the URL of the webserver: Http://webserver/development (copied directly from IE)

5) I confirm the name and finish.

Here is the problem. Instead of the shortcut reading as Http://webserver/development it reads as \\webserver\development and has basically converted it to a UNC share. On most of the PC's it creates a folder with a globe icon and when the users go to save or attach files the format is very similar to sharepoint. When this PC attempts to open the shortcut they get your standard windows folder structure.

Has anyone seen this or been able to fix it?

Problem when adding activities in SharePoint Designer 2010

  

Hello,

I have a problem while adding custom activities in a workflow with SharePoint Designer 2010. My activities are deployed by a global package that also contains features, web pages, activities. This packages work correctly on another server.

I add a new reusable workflow, then in the list of actions, I select my custom action but it is not added to the workflow. I don’t get any error message.

I added authorizedType in web.config.
My assemblies were deployed in the GAC.
In my package, I have web pages that use the assembly used by my custom activities and it works fine.

I also deleted temporary

Problem with adding third party webparts and sharepoint webparts to the custom pages

  

Hi All,

 

 I have a problem with my custom webpart pages which are inside sitedefinition. I have a sitedefinition defined for creating sites and sitedefinition contains the master pages and .aspx pages. My pages have webpartzone defined to with the custom webparts added in it. From the browser, when I try to add third party webparts or sharepoint webparts or my custom webparts, it's failing with "Unable to add selected web part(s). The operation could not be completed because the Web Part was deleted by another user or is invalid." Does anyone have the same problem? Please help me. Why the pages are not allowing to add any other webparts to the page. Also I double checked my pages and webpartzones if I am blocking to add webparts via AllowCustomizations=false but I am not. If I create a site with the sitedefinition, isn't it possible to add webparts to the page manually? I haven't found any information about this. Any ideas please.

 

Thanks in advance,

 


Adding Search Refinements in SharePoint 2010

  
I have been playing around with SharePoint 2010 Search this morning. I love the new UI. The search refinements panel is just begging to be messed with. In my case I wanted to add the file extension JPG as an Image Type refiner.

Sharepoint 2007 Email problem

  

I've used Sharepoint 2007 to create my website. Within my web pages I've included Forms in order to capture people's contact details, so that when they 'Submit' the form their details are emailed to my email account. The problem is that when I go to Form Properties and insert the email address to which I want the data sent, I receive this message: "This form cannot be configured to send results via email. The web site may be based at a disk-based location, or a location that has not been configured to send email. Contact your system admin or ISP for more info. Would you like to remove the email recipient Yes or No"   

I am satisfied that the settings within the webhosting service are correct. Is this functionality available with Sharepoint 2007 or do I need to switch to alternative software.

Adding a custom ASP page to a sharepoint 3.0 site

  

I have a custom ASP page that I need to add to my sharepoint 3.0 web site.  I created a virtual directory under my website and placed the ASP file.  When I link to the ASP file, I get a 404 page not found.  To make sure I had the correct URL path, I created a test html file and placed in the same virtual directory and linked to it just fine.  I think it has something to do with managed paths and sharepoint trying to control this new ASP content.  I cannot figure out how to exclude this content from managed paths.

Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue so I can run this custom ASP file under sharepoint 3.0?

Thanks


Problem accessing Sharepoint 2007 MySite

  

My users are having an issue accessing their mysites.  When they go to the main portal page or any other site and click the link at the top right of the page to go to their Mysite they are thrown into an endless authentication loop.  If they cancel out of the loop the URL in the address bar is for http://mossserver/_layouts/MySites.aspx

For a user to successfully get to their myself they need to enter the full url like http://mossserver/personal/username/default.aspx

Now, I know somewhat how this happened.  It resulted from me trying to delete a user's mysite and I apparently did it wrong but I'm not sure what I did.  It almost seems like I deleted a redirect page or something...

Looking for any ideas.

Thanks,

Casey


Sharepoint 2007 View Problem

  
I have a document library in Sharepoint 2007 in which I have seet up a number of different views so that the users who work with the information in that library can filter down to the specific area that they work with.  The view itself works great, and they are able to see their data quite easily.  The problem comes when they actually go in and edit any of the items.  Unlike most software in the civilized world for the past 30 years, the user is not returned to the view that they were working with, but to the defult view.  This means that any task where they are required to do many edits at a time becomes a frustrating nightmare and waste of time.  Is there any setting I can change, or anything else at all that I can do to give my users a little relief by making the site navigation such that they are returned after an edit to the same view that they were in before the edit?  Ideally, it would be nice if the same scroll position within the view were returned as well, but I suspect that I may be asking for too much by pushing that issue.  HELP! HELP!  Any and all constructive assistance is appreciated.

Problem with SharePoint Designer 2007 and Custom List Forms

  

I created several forms (Create/Edit/View) for a SharePoint list, using Custom List Forms.  I'm using Content Types in the list to ensure that each item only has the necessary fields.  When I created the ASPX forms, and inserted the Custom List Forms, I selected the correct Content Type, and I got the right fields inserted in the form.

Now, for some reason I can't identify, every time I create a new form, and insert a Custom List Form, SPD is bringing ALL fields from the list, instead of just bringing the fields included in the selected Content Type.

I have tried many different things to solve the problem, including creating new lists/content types/forms, etc. but SPD is doing the same thing all the time.

Can somebody tell me what may have gone wrong in SPD or MOSS?

Thanks


Problem adding .NET 3.5.1 feature on Server 2008 R2

  
Having an issue with a 2008 R2 64-bit Server becoming unresponsive/locking up when trying to activate the .NET 3.5.1 feature.  Did not have any previous version of .NET installed but ran the .NET Cleanup utility and completed successfully but still have same issue.  It installed .NET 4 via the Microsoft Updates OK but still hangs part way through the 3.5.1 install via the Server Manager/Add Features.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

Problem changing/upgrading properties on WebParts that have already been deployed and added to Share

  
I have created two custom webparts which I deploy as a Feature within a Solution.  These webparts have been added to various pages on my site.  Due to design changes, I upgraded the webparts with some new functionality and some other changes to the webpart properties, such as the WebPart title, title icon and catalog icon.  After I have retracted/deleted the old solution and re-deployed the new solution (and activated the feature) the webparts have been upgraded fine, however, the webpart properties were not changed for any webparts that were already added to pages.  I can add new instances of the webparts and they have the updated properties (and also show correctly in the wp gallery and catalog). Is there a step I am missing in order to upgrade any webparts (namely the properties) that have already been added to pages?  Or is this something I have to take care of programmatically somehow to workaround the upgrade problem?
