SharePoint Designer unable to open .aspx pages on a moss2007 install

  Asked By: Tarang    Date: Aug 27    Category: MOSS    Views: 4126

Has anyone seen this before? I've got a Moss2007 install and up until
about a month ago everything was fine, now however I'm unable to use Sharepoint
Designer to open or view any .aspx pages. It returns this error
"soap:ServerServer was unable to process request. ---> Cannot complete this
action. Please try again. ---> Cannot complete this action. Please try again."

I found this artical online, but the suggestion solution doesn't works for me.

Clear out IE temporary files
Delete %UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WebsiteCache
Make sure that Sharepoint Designer is pointing to the FQDN
(http://portal.contoso.com) of the site, not just the server name.


Any ideas?

Have you checked the logs in the 12 hive to see if there are any
pertinent error messages when you do this? Also, you might check the
application logs (Event Viewer) of the web server  and the database server
(apparently sometimes this can result from overlarge transaction logs).

One more suggestion: try browsing to a page in the SharePoint browser
GUI (Master pages  seem to work well for this too), open  the dropdown menu
for one of the pages, and select Edit In SharePoint Designer. Sometimes
this can shake things up enough to get you going again.
