ms-word:ofv|u|<URL> URI scheme doesn't open word in read only mode RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I followed to call URI scheme in Word 2016 and the document is opened in read-only mode but the same scheme when called on Microsoft Office Word 2010 SP2 opens the file in regular mode(editable mode). 

    I understand 'v' argument is to open in view or read-only mode, is there any other argument that needs to be passed for the same behaviour on 2010 Office word?

  • Hi Kamesh,

    Based on the link, it seems the Office scheme should work under Office 2010 SP2.

    Could you share us detail steps to use Office Scheme? I will try to make a test by following your steps.

    In addition, I suggest you try to upgrade Office 2010 to Office 2010 latest version.

    Best Regards,
