4.0 Vibe Add-In Issues

4.1 The Installer Does Not Automatically Restart after .NET Framework Is Installed

If the .NET Framework is not already installed on your workstation, the Vibe Add-in installation program installs it for you. Installation of the .NET Framework requires that your workstation is rebooted. After your workstation reboots, you need to manually restart the Vibe Add-in installation program:

  1. Navigate to the location where the VibeAddinSetup.exe file was downloaded.

  2. Run the VibeAddinSetup.exe file.

4.2 Unable to Merge Changes with Changes Made by Another User in Word 2013

When using Word 2013, an error message is displayed when users attempt to merge changes with changes made by another user, as described in Co-Editing a Vibe Document in Micro Focus Vibe Add-In 4.0.6 Quick Start.

4.3 Embedded Images in Entry Descriptions Are Not Displayed

Images that are embedded in the Description section of an entry are displayed as broken when viewing the entry from Microsoft Office with the Vibe Add-in. However, you can still edit the text of the entry description from Microsoft Office with the Vibe Add-in.

4.4 Vibe Add-In Does Not Work When the Vibe Server Is Configured with Windows Authentication

If your Vibe server is configured with Windows Authentication, the Vibe Add-in cannot open or edit files on your Vibe site because of a port conflict.

For information about how to work around this issue, see Integrating Windows Authentication with Vibe Desktop and the Vibe Add-In in the Micro Focus Vibe 4.0.6 Administration Guide.

For more information about configuring Windows Authentication for your Vibe site, see Configuring Single Sign-On with Internet Information Services for Windows in the Vibe 4.0.6 Installation Guide.

4.5 Login Information for the Vibe Desktop Application Is Lost

If you are using Vibe Desktop in conjunction with the Vibe Add-in, login information for Vibe Desktop is lost if you configure your account information in the Vibe Add-in to use the system proxy configuration (by selecting Use system proxy configuration), then later configure the account to not use the system proxy configuration.

4.6 Users with Extended and Double-Byte Characters Are Unable to Open a File

After a user with extended or double-byte characters in their Vibe user name adds their Vibe account using the Microsoft Office Add-In (as described in Setting Up the Integration in the Micro Focus Vibe Add-In 4.0.6 Quick Start), the user is unable to open a Vibe file via the Add-In.

4.7 Cannot Save a New Document to Vibe When Using a Document Management System

When using a document management system (such as OpenText), you cannot save a new document to the Vibe site directly from the Vibe Add-In.
