I've just upgraded my Alfresco installation to version 5.0.d. With this version the problems with check-in function of the VTI module are fixed. I can now open my MS Word documents, check-out documents, edit them and check them in again without any problems. But there is a new error if I'am triying to browse all documents directly from Word:

- Start Word 2010 and click on file => open.
- Enter the base url of the VTI service. (e.g. https://server:7070/alfresco)
- The following error appears in Word:

HTTP ERROR 500

How can I solve this error?
Edit: This seams to be the url word is calling: https://server:7070/alfresco/_vti_bin/owssvr.dll?dialogview=FileOpen&FileDialogFilterValue=*.docx;*.docm;*.dotx;*.dotm;*.doc;*.dot;*.htm;*.html;*.rtf;*.mht;*.mhtml;*.xml;*.odt&location=
