Open Office Documents from Document Library without Password Prompt

  Asked By: Colin    Date: Jun 16    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 15142

We have a SharePoint site and Document library set up for anonymous access.

All non-Microsoft file types open correctly without a password.

When users click on Microsoft Office documents they are prompted for passwords.

Is there some way to configure the Office documents or Document Library so that users are not prompted for passwords when they open documents or is this a bug?

To keep it simple:

1. Disable client integration

2. Remove the OPTIONS verb from the <HTTPHandlers> registration line in the web.config file  for the site
