Approving workflows disabled in Office 2007

  Asked By: Ravi    Date: Apr 13    Category: MOSS    Views: 1360

We're having a problem with our entire Microsoft Office 2007 suite, including
Outlook, because it's no longer communicating with SharePoint regarding our

We used to be able to create workflows from our Office dropdown menus and edit
our workflow tasks directly in Outlook by clicking the "Edit this task" button,
but last Friday morning (the 13th), ALL our Office applications stopped
exchanging data with SharePoint, which has made generating and approving
workflows much more difficult.

The only workaround is going directly to the document library, finding the
document you want to approve, click the dropdown list next to the file while
selecting Workflow, and then approving that task through the dropdown list.

But this is a terrible workaround because everybody has to search for their
specific workbook in the document library before they can approve it. And it's
not a SharePoint problem -- it's an Office problem because the "Edit this task"
button no longer works in Outlook, Word, or Excel.

And this happened to our entire site last Friday. Is this due to a new
Microsoft update, a corrupted registry, or something else?
