One of our users is now running Windows 7 and uses the Office Connector version 1.15 on Confluence 3.4.9 to edit Excel 2007 sheets then have them auto-save back into the wiki. It used to work in Windows XP. But now his changes don't save back to the Wiki on his Windows 7 installation. Is this a known problem? Is there a fix?
If he is prompted to save the changes locally, then most likely he is hitting read-only issue. Simply put, if you are on SSL/HTTPS the issue should has been resolved (in Confluence 3.4.1 or higher + Office Connector 1.14 or higher). Otherwise you'll need to change the BasicAuthLevel (at [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\WebClient\Parameters]) registry setting to 2 for each Windows 7 client machine since Windows 7 does not support HTTP Basic Authentication to WebDAV resources. Good discussion on this issue can be found here.
I have tried all the instructions from the following page:
Only + problems + in + the + office + Connector
I also have this patch installed:
BasicAuth a new registry key has been added with the value 2 here:
Nothing helps with this problem, does anyone have another solution option
