Browser tip

January 19th, 2011

From the Sharepoint Blog,

With many users both on campus and at home opting to upgrade to Windows 7, I wanted to pass along a tiny tidbit of information. Windows 7 is available in 2 different platforms, 32 bit and 64 bit. Users opting for 64 bit should note that there are 2 versions of Internet Explorer installed.

When using internet Explorer, you should make note to use the link that says Internet Explorer, not Internet Explorer (64-bit). Using the 64 bit version can cause problems when accessing Sharepoint, like not being able to properly open Office files.

SharePoint, IE8, and the Explorer View

June 11th, 2010

Greetings,

It’s been a while since I’ve posted something SharePoint related so here’s a quick tip that started on Twitter.  One individual whom I follow was asking if there was a fix for the Explorer View in a document library over SSL for those using IE8.  That is our setup, SharePoint accessed over SSL and I run IE8.  I told her I usually have to authenticate to open the view and the transfer is typically slow.  We received a follow-up tweet from @Hugheser saying to check the LAN configuration settings in IE.

LAN Configuration Settings

You want to uncheck that first box if it’s enabled and you’ll see an a significant increase in transfer speed.
