Visio 2010 & SharePoint local drafts check out not working RRS feed

Answers

  • Are you getting any side-by-side errors in the event log when you attempt to check out and use the local drafts folder?

  • Hello,

    What happens if not using App-v? (meaning Visio is installed natively?)

  • Hello,

    I get the prompted to check in the diagram as expected. I also have more options in File > Info, specifically:

    Checked Out Document - with the option to check in, and

    Version - with View Version History.

    As mentioned above, these options are available if "Use my local drafts folder" is not selected.

  • Does the SharePoint check in/out work for other virtualised Office applications, e.g. Word or Excel?

  • It does, but they are local installs. When Visio is installed locally, all the functionality works. When virtually installed, only 1 of the 3 options doesn't work.


    The 3 options are:

    Read Only - works as expected

    Check Out and Edit with "Use my local drafts folder" UNCHECKED - works as expected

    Check Out and Edit with local drafts checked - does not offer the option to check in once complete. SharePoint File > Info options in Visio are also not available.

  • Where is the local draft stored? Has this location been virtualised per chance?

  • Draft SharePoint files are stored in

    %USERPROFILE%\Documents\SharePoint Drafts

    The location is not virtualised.
