Office files won't open from network
Posted on 2010-11-08
I have a Windows 2008 server with Win 7 32 workstations. Network shares are maped through scripts. We all use Office 2007 pro. When I open a office file from the network ie: and excel file, at the bottom of exel it will say "Downloading ..." it sometimes hang there for 5 or 10 minuites. then it will open but a message will come up stating that the file may be corupt, read only or on a server that is not responding. However you can cancel the message and the file is fine. Sometimes the network file will open with out any trouble at all. The problem seams to be only with Office 2007 file. I can always open any other file ie: Adobe without problem. Which leads me to think it is realted to Office. But because of the randomness I'm not sure. I would say it happens 80% of the time. Where do I start??
