Multiple login issue

  Asked By: Eliseo    Date: Nov 16    Category: MOSS    Views: 933

I apologize if this has
been covered previously...I haven't seen any archives yet...but I've got a
question that is holding me up from going live w/this SharePoint project. And,
from what I see around the web, I'm sure it is something you're all aware of...

If a user opens a PDF doc, everything goes as expected and it opens right up.
However, if the user wants to open an MS Word or Excel file, it prompts for a
login. If they cancel twice, they get it anyhow, so it isn't necessary, but I
don't want it to ask at all.

I've muddled though this problem w/XP machines, but it looks like I can't bust
the issue, in regards to Win7 PCs.

There is nothing secretive on this site...it is primarily employee forms and
such that do not need secured, so I don't want a password required. And, we're a
Novell shop, and w/out WSS working w/LDAP, it would be a management nightmare to
create a user acct for everyone anyhow.

Any ideas?

Did you try setting the site to trusted?
You may also have to add the url to trusted in Office application, if you are
using 2007 and up.
Hope that helps.

Read this KB Note about Vista and Win 7. Just a registry add should do.
