Can't open file in IE 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good afternoon. 

    I have a link to a file with the extension xlsx (file :/ / server / ...) on the corporate portal.  NTFS security of this file: one person has full access, and all other read-only. 

    The problem with the client IE10. If this file is open person who has access to it full access on the client with IE10 when attempting to open it (the person with read only) downstairs is: Could not load file. When you close the browser window appears office: File in use (editing smoking, read only, notify, cancel). Push the read-only file is opened. 

    The second option at the bottom of the window in the browser when clicked: open, save. Choose: open, writes a security check, you can not download the file. When you close the browser, nothing appears. 

    All other browsers (IE younger versions) always open a file without any problems. 

    Disables all add-ons added to trusted hosts, made ​​the minimum security policy in IE, however, the problem persists. 

    Where else can you see, except for the restoration IE8 on this computer?

    Looks like a case for Enterprise mode (then requiring IE11).  The description sounds like IE10 has fixed something that you would still like to see be used the way it was originally broken.

  • Hi,

    Does this issue only happen in this specific computer?

    What is the result if we access other files with similiar link (file :/ / server / ...)? And what is the result if we access the files with link (\\server\share) in Windows Explorer?
    I think we should first finger out whether this issue is related with IE or some other settings in the computer or just some sharing settings with the specific xlsx file.
