We have SharePoint WSS 3.0 and MS Office 2003.
In SharePoint WSS 3.0 I have a Document Library with Adobe PDF files in it.
When I click on a document in a document library (just click on it, not right click or select from the drop down box options), it prompts me with the following:
you are about to open:
"How would you like to open this file?"
I am the only one who gets this message. For all other users, the file opens in edit mode automatically.
In researching I found I get the message because I have Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007 installed on my PC and no one else has this (see http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/MS-SharePoint/Q_22634923.html
Research sugges once you install (locally) any Office 2007 application or component (either suite, Project, Visio, or ...), you'll receive this dialog box.
My question is this. We aren't upgrading to MS Office 2007 any time soon. Can anyone suggest a free Office 2007 application or component that I can install on all my PCs so the message pops up for everyone?
Thank you in advance!
