to configure RoboHelp10 and share point 2010. Now I can add project in sharepoint, but when I tried to edit
a topoic file, there is a window pop-out and say:"The files in the list below could not be checked out from version control. Exclusive access to these files is required to modify this document.".
Thanks for your help in advance:-)
After you’ve added the project to SharePoint, did you use the Check in all button to check in all files? It may be that some files are still checked out in SharePoint. Open it up in the browser and check in any files still currently checked out.
I found a interesting thing that when I added a new project to SharePoint, the check in button is unavailable for me. But when I go to SharePoint side to check files status, all files are checked-in.
One more thing is that the check out file's status is "Checked out for another user. New version available", I'm confusing that the file was checked out by myself, why it showed checked out for another user? And I right click this status info, selected Show History to get more info, it showed the file checked out user is me. Any comment about this?
For the version control on SharePoint side, I followed this page: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/robohelp/robohtml/WS1b49059a33f77726-5aab6 6613798e5ec9b-7ffe.html
Does other thing need configure?
BTW, because I'm using the trail version, is it matter?
Thanks a lot!
Weird, the article shows the correct steps. The trial is fully functional, so that shouldn’t be a problem.
Can you try this: close your project and remove the .CPD file. Then reopen your project and try to check out a file.
I tried but still not work.
Is the problem likely to be a sharepoint permissions? Or is there need special permission to the project creator?
Because they are in the same PC, and the OS is Win7x64.
You need to have contribute rights for the document library.
Is in SP the content approval enabled?
Can you try the following: Zip up your current project for backup. Then get the entire project fresh from the SharePoint server and open it. Does that help?
Thanks Willam's feedback.
About contribute rights, is that mean enable version control? Or current user need the right?
The content approval is disabled.
I tried your solution, but problem still here, never leave:-(
BTW, does the problem may be caused by SP's working environment? I mean I installed the SP2010 on Win7x64 that not the official recommanded OS.
I tried use TFS2010 to control version, it works well, but need install VS2010 on each contributor's PC, that's a trouble.
Contribute rights means that the user must have rights to add and change items in the library. If you enable version control for the library, the user will automatically have rights to check out and check in.
I’m not sure what’s at play here. If SharePoint works well for everything else I highly doubt that the installation environment is the issue. As long as all SP’s services run and you use the correct ISS version. I’ll ask around if anyone else knows about what might be causing this.
Installing VS may be pain, but you only have to do it once. Personally, I like TFS because you better control and more options in TFS. (Such as associating check ins with change sets.)
