"Document could not be checked out" permission problem?

  • "Document could not be checked out" permission problem? SAV

    I am facing problem with document check out in a SharePoint document library. This is the message I am getting:

    alt text http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/1575/libraryerror.jpg

    • I'm using the out of the box document library.

    • I have logged on as Admin

    • Document is not already checked out

    • I have tried creating a new document library

    • I have tried creating a new site collection

    UPDATE 1:

    Check out works with Firefox but not IE.

    UPDATE 2:

    No 2003 products are installed. This happens with all users. When I check out a document in-place (locally), check out works fine... This might be an IE problem...

    When I installed a new web application the problem disappeared... But I still don't know what broke it...

    UPDATE 3:

    Any other file types check out fine but docx/xlsx/office related types won't check out....

    UPDATE 4:

    I have narrowed the problem to the web.config. Somehow its settings breaks libraries checked out in Internet Explorer.

    I tested it with my original web.config on a new web-application/site collection and it worked fine. As soon as I updated my other web.config to the correct one checkout doesn't work.

  • I have seen this happen when you have some Office 2007 products installed along with some Office 2003 products. This may or may not be your issue, but I have seen it fairly frequently. There is a KB article on it from Microsoft, along with a hotfix that must be run on the machine experiencing the issue: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/938888.

    Without further information, this would be my first guess as to the issue you are experiencing.


  • Solution

    ASP.net Ajax 1.0 web.config settings messed up check out. Particularly this line in httpHandlers section:

    <add verb="*" path="*.asmx" validate="false" 
      System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, 

    After removing this line it worked like a charm :)
