Alfresco 4.2.e

I'm been trying to get the Edit Online function working in 4.2.e but not having much success so far.

I've been reading a bunch of posts regarding this mostly it seems from back in 3.x versions and it's unclear what is needed to get this working with 4.2.e.

We are using MS Office 2010.  When I go into the documentLibrary of a site and click More dropdown on a particular document I can see it has Edit Online and Edit Offline.  When I first clicked on Edit Online the browser put up a message saying MS Office was requesting additional permissions.  I selected Always Run from This Site.  So I tried clicking on Edit Online again after granting permissions and it shows an error message: Could not start MS Office.

In 4.2.e do you still need some plugin to make Edit Online work?  I did not install any plugin yet.

Also, by company policy, Upload Center is disabled in MS Office 2010.  Does this present any problem?

Thanks.
