  • Paul,

    Yes, another repair of Office 2010 resolved the issue again. And now it seems more stable : this morning my SharePoint OpenDocument Class add-ons were still here.

  • Hi there,

    Do you have Microsoft SharePoint Foundation support feature installed for office on that machine?

    Thanks

  • Hi Paul,

    Microsoft SharePoint Foundation support feature has been installed because my reports worked fine in Excel for several weeks.

    How can I check that Microsoft SharePoint Foundation is still there?

    Thanks

  • Hi there,

    On the client machine for office 2010, access the control panel > Programs and features > select Sffice 2010 > click Change > Add or remove features > scroll down to Office Tools and check that the Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Support is enabled.

    Thanks

    Paul

  • Thanks a lot Paul,

    So, I checked that Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Support is actually enabled.

  • Are you using the 32 bit version of Internet Explorer?

    Thanks

  • I'm using the IE which comes with Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit, so I think that it is 64 bit too.

  • Disappointement!

    I'm working on a test environment installed on a laptop. So this morning I restarted the machine and... I get the same error : A Microsoft SharePoint Foundation compatible application could not be found...

    And I check: in the Manage Add-ons page of IE, the SharePoint OpenDocument Class add-ons are gone... 

    How can we keep these settings stable?

    Thanks for any idea.

  • If you do another repair of office 2010, does this resolve the issue again?

    Thanks
