Opening Web-hyperlinked Microsoft Office documents in read-write mode

Posted on Posted in Programming, Windows

Microsoft Office in a webdav or hyperlynked will open as read only. To change the default behavior and open as read-write: Set¬†OpenDocumentsReadWriteWhileBrowsing DWORD Value on a client machine under the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\<version>\Common\Internet Set the Value data to 1. This does not address the issue of the server service file permissions.
