Got the message:
>>The document could not be opened for editing. A Windows SharePoint Services compatible application could not be found to edit the document. <<
This is a challange and there is several possibilities:
- You are using the 64 bit version of Internet Explorer and choosing “edit in Microsoft Word”
- The SharePoint support component that is included in Office Tools is not installed on the computer.
See MS KB article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/833714
- The document URL path is probably too long!
