Cheers all,

I'm trying to open a Word doc by clicking on "Edit Online" and I receive this error:

The file 'EDITED_FILENAME.docx' could not be edited online because its path contains characters that are not permitted by SPP protocol.
   Invalid characters include the following: ~ " # % & * : < > ? / \ { | }.

I also cannot open the file (or any other Word doc) even if I browse to the mapped network location \\192.168.0.203@7070\alfresco of X://192.168.0.203:7070/alfresco

That filename contains no special characters at all - just upper and lowercase text/
I have never encountered this before and the behaviour is the same in FF and Chrome.

Any ideas? 

cheers,
Trevor
