  • You need update RMS client software to "WindowsRightsManagementServicesSP2-KB979099-Client-x86-ENU.exe". It'll help you resolve this problem.

  • Dear Yashvardhan,Even i am facing the same issue regrading the excel file.when i try to open a rms protected file in excel it gives a error "cannot use test manifest against production server".we are on the domain network.

    But when i use a different laptop and login with the same user and password and try to open the file it works fine.
