ProjectWise integration has been working and no longer is working for one or more of the following Microsoft Office products:
At times, one or more of the following errors are encountered:
Cannot start application for the specified document. Check your program associations. Invalid parameter passed to API function.
Cannot start application for the specified document. Check your program associations. A client's attempt to establish a conversation failed.
When checking the user ProjectWise Program Associations there are no apparent problems and no user associations have been created.
We've been dealing with this problem for 3 years. A least three times a week some user gets hit. Based on the date of this blog it’s disheartening to see this issue still around. Got two calls on this while writing this post! Our solution is to have users run a batch routine that deletes the registry entries disabling PW integration. Users don’t have access to perform the procedure above.
