Problem opening Office 2007 documents using FBA RRS feed

  • Question

  • This problem has been well documented with workarounds and all but nothing worked for me.

    Problem: I have a web application that uses FBA and when users click on a doc in sharepoint library, word opens and displays nothing in windows xp sp 3, office 2007 sp2(12.0.6425.1000) machine. On win 7 sp1, office 2010 machine, I get a prompt for credentials via our login page and once I enter credentials, word displays the same login page within word document and not the actual content.

    Below are our specs:

    sharepoint server: MOSS 2007, stand alone, version 12.0.0.6565 in CA (sp2?), uses FBA via ADAM.

    What I tried: On xp machine I did this with no luck. Actually I couldn't find FormsBasedAuthSettings key, so I made on and created DWORD FormsAuthEnabled and set it to 1. On win 7 machine I tried this with no luck.

    Am I missing something? Please help!

  • Try adding the site to the trusted sites . and also change the Automatic logon using current username and password on the client machine 

    go to Central admin => application management => authentication provider

    => Select the correct web application => click on the internet zone

    => Uncheck Enable Anonymous access & select "YES" in 'Enable Client Integration'

    Also Upgrade the Server to sp3 if you can

  • Have you configures Trusted locations in Office 2007, you dont forget about a firewall ISA/IAG/UAG?
