Consider a Word document in SharePoint. I've created this .doc using Word 2007 on a Windows 7 machine. I've then uploaded the document to the SharePoint directory.
Editing that document brings the problem. We're presented next with a non-descriptive message box:
The document could not be edited. The required application may not be installed properly, or the requested document cannot be opened.
I don't think Office is installed improperly. I've actually used this installation of Word to create the document to begin with.
- 'Repair' Microsoft Office. No different results.
- Open the document normally from SharePoint, just clicking on the document. The Save dialog doesn't show the SharePoint folder at all, but my Win7 Library instead.
How can you edit a document in SharePoint using Office 2007 and Windows 7? Is this an Internet Explorer setting?
