I upgraded to Office 2007 and since I've had to submit my credentials every time I open one of the files on "My Site." Which also does not connect as my home site like it did in office 2003. I've been looking for a fix for this for some time but I realize that Microsoft is no longer continuing their Microsoft Office Web Components line which is the most likely cause of the issue. If anyone knows how to keep from getting prompted for credentials every time I try to open a document saved on our SharePoint 2003 server it would be greatly appreciated but it is not my primary concern.
My major problem is I've recently been given the task of creating an IT site on our SharePoint Server. We run both SharePoint Server 2003 and Services. I have not done any of this before I upgraded to Office 2007 and do not have a computer with Vista Business and Office 2003 to test this on. I can add a Web Capture Web Part to the area but when I try to select a site for it to pull in I get an error:
"Cannot create or modify Web Capture. Make sure that your browser supports ActiveX controls, that you have enabled them, and that you have installed the Web Capture ActiveX control."
It works fine on a XP computer with Office 2003 and Office 2003 web components installed, but I won’t have the luxury of having a second laptop next to me all the time. I’ve added my domain name to local Intranet and all ActiveX is enabled. I cannot however find the Web Capture ActiveX control online to install it. It is included in the 2003 web components but does not work with office 2007. Does anyone have a bandage or know how to fix this issue entirely?
