Office windows dont get focus when using LiveEdit
When I click on a LiveEdit link, the document is opening well with Office but the window doesn't get the focus on screen : the user doesn't see the window (which is behind the browser) and he thinks that it doesn't work.
Is there a configuration to resolve this annoying problem in enterprise environnment ?
This is my configuration:
- Windows 7 64 bits
- Office 2010 64 bits
- IE8 or Firefox 21 (same behaviour)
- LiveEdit 2.4.5 64bits
I found a fix which seems to work pretty well, based on this article :
I had to modify a key in the registry :
- Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
- Modify this variable: ForegroundLockTimeout
- Put '0' instead of '200000'
It worked for Windows XP, 7 and Office 32bits and 64bits
