Windows Installer pops up when opening SPS

  Asked By: Anita    Date: Apr 05    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1299

some strange things occur with some of our users. When they try to open the
SPS-homepage a Windows-Installer pops-up an wants to install something. But
it is not specified what he wants to install exactly. After cancelling the
Installation-routine the homepage opens normally.

Do you have any Microsoft application to be opened on your homepage  ?. I
mean, there's a chance that you have a web part which displays one of the
microsoft's application on your homepage and for that the SPS doesn't has
the profile info or whatever, for it to display and hence it wanted to
install something for it to open  up the application(s). Like I have the
public folders, calendar etc. on my homepage. For example, outlook, notes
etc. But that could be the Ms Digital Dashboard too....but that normally
asks for permission to install. So just check it up...
