.RMP extensions not recognized

  Asked By: Gaurang    Date: Nov 01    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1094

We are running SPS 2003.

Recently we started using a program called "Open Workbench", it is
similiar to Microsoft Project. When storing a Workbench project file
in SP, it gives a generic icon, and then clicking on the file it only
gives the option to SAVE.

When opening the Workbench program, then doing a FILE-OPEN, it opens
as a Read-Only, saying it is locked. When the file is stored anywhere
except SP it open by double-clicking or by File/Open. Any thoughts?
Is it possible this program/file type is just not compatible with SP?

To fix the generic icon problem you will need to add the rmp extension
to the DOCICON.xml file stored out in the TEMPLATE/XML directory of the
12 hive. You can use this to load a 16x16 graphics image that will be
displayed by SharePoint in a document library when using this file

For the Read-Only problem is "Force Checkout" turned on for this
document library? If so, you will need to Check out the file using the
context menu before trying to open the file. The actual opening of the
file (versus just saving it) is based on the MIME settings of your
browser, not by SharePoint. I suspect the Read-only behavior is
happening because "Force Checkout" is turned on and since the file isn't
loaded in an Office app checkout cannot be automated.

I am not seeing anything that indicates "Force Checkout" in the
document library? I am looking in that library under Modify Columns
and Settings.

Take a look at the last setting under 'Versioning Settings' in the
Modify columns and settings page.

the only thing I have under Versioning is "On or Off"

Are you on SharePoint 2003 or 2007? The Docicon.xml file is the same
place for both, but force Checkout is only in 2007.
