Had another strange SharedPoint issue when trying to edit the front page of our
WSS 3.0 SharePoint Web Site.
Clicked Site Actions
Clicked Edit Page
Clicked Edit dropdown on the Web Part I wanted to change
Hmmm - where did "Modify Shared
Web Part" go?
Checked permissions - yep had sufficient rights. So what could it be?
I was using IE9, and noticed before it does some weird things so put it into Compatibility mode - and bingo working again!
When looking at their computer I notice a script error in IE:-
User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; InfoPath.3)
Message: Library not registered.
It seems that when Outlook 2003 was uninstalled and Outlook 2010 was installed a dll gets unregistered and not re-registerd again. The file is called name.dll.
So to Fix:-
In CMD navigate to:-
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14
And run the following command:-
Then close all IE windows and try it again and all should be good.
