SharePoint Word Automation Service does not work – file may be corrupted

In one of my posts i wrote about the usage of word automation services.

If you see this error

The file could not be converted; it may be corrupt or otherwise invalid (the conversion process failed). Please try opening the file in Microsoft Word, resaving it, and then resubmitting the file for conversion. If this does not resolve the issue, contact your system administrator.

you would never guess what the cause really is. This message does not lead you to the source of failure.

Normally the word automation services work smoothly, but if you are developer and you have a VM with SharePoint, Domain Controller, SQL Server on one machine than it might come to this error above.

The reason for it, was written down in this forum. It seems that the WAS and the domain controller on one machine won’t work.

Try it on a different machine where no Domain Controller is installed. Does it work?

ShareConf Vortragsfolien online – Wunsch & Wirklich bei SharePoint Forms

Seit heute sind auch die Folien zu meinem Vortrag von der ShareConf 2014 bei Slideshare online verfügbar.

Der Vortrag mit dem Titel “Wunsch & Wirklichkeit bei SharePoint Forms: Usability und Anpassungsmöglichkeiten” handelt inhaltlich von folgendem:

Bei der Entwicklung von SharePoint Lösungen für fachbezogene Prozesse stehen häufig Schnittstellen, Integration und Migrationsprozesse als große Herausforderung im Vordergrund. Doch spätestens beim produktiven Einsatz sitzen Endanwender vor der Anwendung und müssen Daten bearbeiten, pflegen und eingeben. Welche Anpassungsmöglichkeit für Formulare in SharePoint bereitstehen sowie Tipps und Beispiele zur besseren Gestaltung von Eingabemöglichkeiten (Stichwort Usability) erfahren Sie in diesem Vortrag. Happy User, happy Customer – das bringt einer SharePoint Anwendung die benötigte Akzeptanz.

SharePoint Getting Log information for a datetime span with Powershell

That should be cool for SharePoint Administrators. If you would like to get all log information from the ULS log of SharePoint you can use this cool snippet with Powershell and insert the needed datetimes. It will save the information in a file.



 

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.Powershell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

Get-SPLogEvent -StartTime "05/06/2014 16:00" -EndTime "05/06/2014 16:30" > c:\Loginformation.log


There are many more options and it is also possible to get the windows event log in the same way. Just look at the links below:
