MS Office and Open Office Integration does not work

Question asked by johnberger on Feb 15, 2011
Latest reply on Feb 21, 2011 by johnberger
I use VirtualBox and I've installed a virtual machine (Suse Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP1 X64).

On the Linux server I installed "alfresco-enterprise-installer-3.4.0-linux-x64.bin".

I just want to use Alfresco Document Management System (explorer and share) and so I've selected these installoptions:

    - SharePoint
    - Records Management
    - Web Quick Start
    - Web Project Management (AVM)
    - Quickr Connector Support
    + OpenOffice
I also have imported  the user profiles from the Windows Active Directory into Alfresco Explorer (Share).

Different users use Alfresco Explorer to manage (upload, edit, delete, etc.) the documents (MS Office, Open Office, PDF etc.) . The client computers are equipped with Windows 7 x64.

Now I want to integrate MS Office (and OpenOffice) into the Alfresco system, as promised on the Alfresco website. http://www.alfresco.com/products/document-management/ -> "Alfresco looks just like SharePoint to Microsoft Office, allowing users to upload, check-in, check-out and modify content right from Office"

Clients:
    Windows 7 X64
    Firefox 4.0 Beta / Google Chrome 9.0
    MS Office 2007
    Open Office 3.2
    JDK 1.6 / JRE 6
Server:
    Suse Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP1 X64
    Alfresco 3.4.0 (with Java, MySQL, Tomcat, OpenOffice 3.2)
I have read Alfresco Wiki, but I find no solution for my case (Serve Linux, Client Windows).
Can someone help me? I would be very grateful…
thanks

best regards
John
