mht file not opening in MSPS 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are migrating frm MSPS 2007 to MSPS 2010. We have a few mht files which are opening in MSPS 2007. These mht files are stored in a sub site. A link is provided to these mht files using Quick Launch. In 2007 version they open in the browser. However, in 2010 version I get a message "Do you want to save this file?" with Save and Cancel options. The mht files do not open automatically.

    Please help. Many thanks.

  • Hi,

    there is a setting in central administration that avoid to open those files. You need to configure the browser file handling there. By default SharePoint 2010 is configure to for a download which is called "browser file handling stict mode".

    On Dave Colemans Blog you can find a description how to change this.

    He had the problem with pdf but it is the same behaviour with mht file.

  • Hi Stefan,

    Many thanks for the reply. Since I am not an administrator, I cannot try this immediately. I'll let you know once we are able to apply this solution.
