Office Integration Problem with SharePoint 2010

2011/03/30

While Performing setup for SharePoint training lab PCs for some customers of my company (Devosis), I usually fix an issue that appears on SharePoint Server 2010 when the user tries to add a new document from a Word Client.

The problem appears when user tries to add a new document using SharePoint ribbon as the following:

image

The Microsoft Word will not be able to store the document in the SharePoint site due to some security settings, and it will show an error “Word has encountered a problem” and “There is a problem saving the file..” as the following:

image

To fix this: Goto File-> Options –> Trust Center, and then click the Trust Center Settings:

Then select from the right tabs (Protected View) and uncheck the “Enable Protected View for files located in potentially unsafe locations” option.

Now the word client will work fine, and it will be able to save the files into the document library.


SharePoint Designer 2010 Workflow Updating Issue

2011/01/25

Issue:

For the third time in as many weeks, I have had this weird problem in updating the Workflow Settings for one of the SharePoint Lists workflows, whenever I change the Start Options to “Start workflow automatically when an item is created/changed” and publish it to SharePoint, the start behavior of the WF execution doesn’t change and once I refresh the SharePoint Designer (SPD) and check the start options again, it returns as it was “Allow this workflow to be manually started”.

image

Cause:

After many hours of fighting with SPD, I went to a conclusion that SPD will cause this issue sometimes because of certain Workflow Activities .NET assemblies caching problem within the SPD.

Resolution:

The solution? It’s simple, you have to clear the SPD Workflow Activities  Assembly Cache Folders:

  1. Close the SharePoint Designer.
  2. Open the Windows Application Data Store Folder by going to Start->Run and then type %APPDATA%\Roaming\Microsoft\SharePoint Designer\ProxyAssemblyCache (%APPDATA% is a Windows Environment Variable that points to the Windows Applications Store Folders) and press Enter.image
  3. Delete all these directories inside the ProxyAssemblyCache Folder.
  4. Browse again to %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\WebTempDirimage
  5. Delete all the files inside this Folder.
  6. Run SPD again, and everything will work out fine Smile
