Compatibility problem with Office 2013 (+ Windows 7)


  • One of my colleagues received a new computer with Windows 7 + Office 2013. Now she's having problems checking out files on our SharePoint 2007 intranet. When she opens an Office document in a library she's not asked to check out the file (although versioning and check out required is on). When she opens the file and does some edits (after clicking 'Enable editing'), she closes the file, but no dialog pops up to save and check in the file. When we check our intranet, no new version is saved and all the edits are gone, very strange. Is this a known compatibility issue between SharePoint 2007 and Office 2013?

    Strange thing, it only happens in combination with Windows 7. Some other colleagues are already running Windows 8 with Office 2013 and are not encountering this problem... Anyone knows how to get this right?
