Unable to open Office Documents from SharePoint
February 26th, 2008
If you are running Office 2007, and you are unable to open Office documents from SharePoint in IE, try the following to solve the problem.
- In Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12
- Delete owssup.dll (I was able to get it to work after doing this)
- Run the Office diagnostics by selecting Start > All Programs > Microsoft Office Diagnostics. This tool will find the missing component and install the “correct” version.
