Office documents authentication issues
I have an issue. where we have users using a shared machine with a common logon. When users try to open a sharepoint site, it prompts them for authentication which is understood since they r not using their windows login to log in to the machine. We worked around the problem by writing a small script which asks for a username and password and then launches IE with the same user name and hence they r not prompted. So far so good.The problem is launching office documents using the "edit in application" feature in MOSS 2007. When users try the same on this machine, it prompts them for authentication which is by design. Is there a way to eliminate this as well so that the same credentials are passed to users on this machine? We have no problems across our environment and this is the only custom solution we need for this machine.

What about adding the site in the Control Panel? Under Windows 7 it is called the Credential Manager. I think it was called Managed Usernames and Passwords in Control Panel in XP.JeffJeff Holliday, MCTS - Solutions Architect - Portals and Collaboration - Ensynch, Inc

We got this to work somehow but adding the sites to trusted sites. It did not work initially but after a reboot it works fine. Beats me :)
