PO09085, WorkItem:266629 - Microsoft Word Integration Stopped working in with JRE 7u67


Issue Description:


Microsoft Word Integration Applet JARs have not been digitally signed with a version of the JDK that is compatible with Oracle JRE 7u67 in the Internet Explorer 11 browser, causing an error when Microsoft Word is launched when editing Word documents.


User Interface Impact: No




To reproduce this issue a client machine using Oracle JRE 7u67 and Internet Explorer 11 is required.


Steps to Reproduce:


  1. Login as a caseworker using Internet Explorer 11.
  2. Register a Person and create a Social Assistance integrated case.
  3. Navigate to the Contact tab and click on Communications.
  4. Click on the menu item to create a New Microsoft Word document.
  5. Select a Case Participant and click Next.
  6. Enter a Subject and click Save.
  7. Issue: Microsoft Word should launch and present the document for editing. However, the following error message is displayed:
    • access denied ("java.util.PropertyPermission" "jacob.dll.path" "read")




This issue has now been resolved and Microsoft Word launches successfully and presents the Word document for editing when using the Internet Explorer 11 browser.




The Microsoft Word Integration Applet JARs have been digitally signed with a JDK that is compatible with Oracle JRE 7u67. This issue does not affect the Google Chrome Word Integration solution, which does not use Applets and therefore does not require signed JARs.
