WLW and SharePoint 2010 FBA (Form based authentication) or Claims Authentication


  • As soon we changed in SharePoint to FBA or claims authentication WLW stopt working. Its not able to connect anymore. The same with Office word. If i log into my SharePoint site with IE (!!!) then word 2007 is able to connect and publish

    No way for WLW und I guess a lot of people aure using WLW for blogging within SharePoint.

    It is a authentication problem of WLW thats for shure. Is the next version able to handle FBA and CA?? Someone a beta-tester???
