Powerpoint 2013 and Groupwise 8

Hi All;

I've recently deployed a few machines that have had Office 2013 installed on them from the factory. Our standard build has Groupwise client 8.0.2 as our email client. End users have admin rights to their machines. They are able to open Word and Excel attachments and shared documents without issue (double click from within the message), they are unable to open PowerPoint documents however. I can see the powerpoint process start and run for about 10 seconds, then shut back down. I had made sure integrations are turned off. If the user right clicks the message and performs a 'Save As", they can save the file locally and open it. Has anyone else seen problems with Groupwise 8.0.2 and Office (PowerPoint) 2013?

TIA

Give it a try with the newest GW 8.03 client as that is the sort of thing
that could have been fixed. 8.02 was pre Microsoft office 2013

Upgrade to 2012. The webaccess is fantastic, and many of these issues go away, and if not, can potentially be fixed. Novell will not be spending a lot of effort fixing 8.x defects.
