Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Error (Office 2013 and IE 8/9)

If you are running a Office 2013 and Internet Explorer 8 or 9 you might see the following error when you attempt to open documents from SharePoint: The Document could not be opened for editing. A Microsoft SharePoint Foundation compatible application could not be found to edit the document.

To resolve this, Microsoft developed a Hotfix which essentially makes Office 2013 a global edition.

Before applying the Hotfix, the following are prerequisites:

1) Make sure you are using the 32-bit version of Internet Explorer
2) Make sure the Qorus Breeze site is added to your Trusted Sites in Internet Explorer
3) Make sure the “SharePoint OpenDocuments Class” add-ins are enabled in Internet Explorer

To download the hot fix, please use this link: 


Ensure you choose the version (32 or 64Bit) that matches your install of Office 2013.
