I've been having the problem with NOT having the "Read Only" or "Edit" , which I'll call "ROE", MS Internet Explorer prompt as well.
I administrate 3 different sharepoint
MOSS 2007 environments, DEV, UAT, and PRD.
On DEV and PRD I do NOT get the ERO prompt on opening a document, it asks me to open the document
On UAT I am prompted with the ROE screen.
*****I want the ROE prompt in all environments.
What I'm using to test:
-Using IE7 running on 64 bit Vista
-I am logged in as Administrator "Full Access" in all 3 environments when I experience this problem. (I get the ERO prompt only in UAT)
-Users without full access also get the same prompts on all 3 environments. (They get the ERO prompt only in UAT)
-The Sharepoint libraries I am testing this on are essentially the same, and in some cases have been copied between environments.
-I have also experienced the same prompts on all environments when using a 32 bit VMWare Workstation Windows Server 2003 machine.
Things I've tried:
-The Core.js file - I've read
a couple blogs about checking this - it appears to be the same across the environments
-Run repair on Office 2007 - My VM does not have office installed on it but I still get the same prompts as my main machine that does have Office 2007. Office 2003 is also not installed here. Only MS Office 2003 Web Components (No repair option) and MS Sharepoint Designer 2007 (just recently installed)
-I checked my IE settings for Local Intranet - The UAT environment is not listed here at all, nor is the DEV environment.
-I ran ProcMon to see how it is accessing the files - on the line I think where the problem is I am getting the following Detail
Good (With ROE prompt)
Desired Access: Generic Read, Disposition: Open, Options: Synchronous IO Non-Alert, Non-Directory File, Attributes: N, ShareMode: Read, Write, AllocationSize: n/a, OpenResult: Opened
Bad (Without ROE prompt)
Desired Access: Generic Read, Disposition: Open, Options: Sequential Access, Synchronous IO Non-Alert, Non-Directory File, Attributes: N, ShareMode: Read, Delete, AllocationSize: n/a, OpenResult: Opened
My gut is telling me its a client problem but since my machine acts differently depending on which environment I'd say that its telling me its a configuration problem on the DEV and PRD MOSS environments.
Any help is appreciated. This has been a bugger of a problem.
