'New document' requires a Windows Sharepoint Services-Compatible application RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    When trying to create a new document on sharepoint we get following message:

    'New document' requires a Windows Sharepoint Services-Compatible application and Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 or greater. To add a document to this documents library, click the 'Upload Document' button.

    Troubleshooting done:

    -Cleared IE cache
    -Tried to reinstall the Sharepoint option on Office 2010 without success - it will not be uninstalled, ie, after removing, if I go to add or remove, it still appears as installed.

    Then:
    -Ran repair office 2010
    -Remove office 2010 and reinstalled again.

    Problem persists and nothing seems to work.

    Machine is Vista with all updates applied.


    Regards Chris

  • It seems that the problem was because I was runing IE9 on 64bit mode.

     

    Running the 32 bit version of IE9 works ok.
