Sharepoint doc and xls file won't open

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Jason Stevens, Dec 8, 2006.

  1. I have Sharepoint V2 setup with some Word and Excel files that used to open
    fine but now when I try to open them they don't open. The Word files open
    but it comes up with the file converter and they are all scrambled and show
    a bunch of boxes rather than text. The Excel files say that the file could
    not be accessed. I have installed Sharepoint V3 per the instructions in
    the paper for installing on SBS 2003 and V3 works fine. I'm not sure if it
    is V3 that broke V2 or not but does anyone know how I could fix this?

  2. Just in case someone else runs into this same problem, it was fixed by
    changing the _vti_bin Execute permissions to Scripts & Executables. It was
    set to Scripts only. I don't remember changing it but who knows.
