Unable to edit and check out document in Sharepoint 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am unable to edit document in SharePoint, and hit error with a message “The document could not be opened for editing. A Windows SharePoint Services compatible application could not be found to edit the document”.

    When I try to check out a document it hits error with the message “object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    Do you have any idea on these issues? As in the development server, I am able to check out and edit documents.

  • HI,

    Some couple of things:

    1. Which browser you are using and which version?

    2. Try to add site in trusted location.

    3. Which OS system you are using here

    You can also install this hotfix in client machine


    Let me know
