Excel Worksheet access issues after ForeFront Client install RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have an excel worksheet that is on a share on windows 2003 running terminal server and SharePoint 2007. End users link to this worksheet from local worksheets to accomplish calculations. After the Forefront client deployment the links would no longer work. The users got an error message that the could no longer access the .xls file and then got a warning that stated "the workbook contains one or more links that cannot be updated. To change the source of links' or attempt to update the values again,click edit links.To open the workbook as is, Click continue." If the user tried either option it failed. After uninstalling Forefront the problem went away. I have not found any entries in the event logs as to what the cause is.

    Any ideas would be helpful

    Thank you
