Cannot open or create word documents in SharePoint 2013 with Office 2010 and Project 2013
I wanted to share an issue I came across related to the SharePoint 2013. If you have installed the Office Suite 2010 and Project 2013 installed together on the same machine you will not be able to create a new Office document from the SharePoint document library, you will get a blank page displayed instead and the following URL link
ms-word:nft|u|http://o15psvr:8080/Shared Documents/Forms/template.dotx|s|http://o15psvr:8080/Shared Documents
Excel Files : "ms-excel:ofv|u|http://sharePointDocumentlibraryURL"
This problem is related to the new Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Support this installs a new version that office 2010 is not aware of.
Here are the steps to fix the problem:
You have to change your installation of Project2013 and run the Repair of the Office 2010. The issue is linked to the New Microsoft SharePoint Foundation support which Project 2013 is installing.
To do so run the change Project
Professional from the control Panel
Disable the “Microsoft
SharePoint Foundation Support “ option and continue.
After the changes take effect run the Office 2010 Repair and the issue should be solved.
