Hello, I have an intranet ASPX page running on Windows Server 2008 / IIS 7.5 that contains a hyperlink control to a word document stored in a folder on the root directory of the website. The navigateURL property looks something like this: "../Documents/file.docx"
(and when moused over the link is generated properly as http://site.name/Documents/file.docx). When a user clicks on the hyperlink the open/save/save as dialog box comes up. The save/save as behave as expected with no issues. The open option though is causing
some problems. Once the open is clicked the user is prompted with a login box which I would guess was asking for their domain credentials, but entering their network ID/password doesn't work. Their only option is to click cancel which then does show the document
in Word (as read-only which is fine).
I have the web.config file set up with the following:
In IIS under authentication everything is disabled except for Windows Authentication. The folder the documents are in has the following properties:
I am at a loss why they open diaglog isn't working. I don't care if the document opens in the browser or in Word, but I need to get rid of the login box that keeps popping up. Thank you.
