Live Edit Compatibility Table

Updated: July 17, 2018 Page Information Edit on GitHub

Nuxeo Live Edit is now deprecated, you should use Nuxeo Drive Edit, see Online Editing section of Nuxeo Drive documentation.

The table below states the compatibility of Live Edit plugins with different versions of browsers and office software, for Nuxeo DM 5.4+.

Tested versions of Live Edit are:

  • Live Edit MS Office-IE (.msi): 2.2.1
  • Live Edit OpenOffice Distribution (.exe): 2.2.1
  • FireFox Protocol Handler: 0.4.11 More information on the plugin / environment correspondence on the Live Edit Installation page.

Internet Explorer 9 Compatibility

Internet Explorer 9 truncates the HTTP_ACCEPT header and prevents Live Edit from working. For instance:

  • with IE 9 in default browsing mode, the HTTP_ACCEPT header looks like this:

    text/html, application/xhtml+xml, /

Two workarounds are possible:

  • If you want to use Live Edit with the client side detection in Internet Explorer 9, you need to activate the "Internet Explorer 9 Compatibility view" browsing mode (F12 developer tools). With IE 9 in compatibility mode, the HTTP_ACCEPT header is:

    image/jpeg, application/x-ms-application, image/gif, application/xaml+xml, image/pjpeg, application/x-ms-xbap, application/vnd.ms-excel, application/vnd.ms-powerpoint, application/msword, application/x-nuxeo-liveedit;ext0="application!vnd.ms-excel", application/x-nuxeo-liveedit;ext0="application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.sheet", application/x-nuxeo-liveedit;ext0="application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.presentationml.presentation", application/x-nuxeo-liveedit;ext0="application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document", application/x-nuxeo-liveedit;ext1="application!vnd.ms-powerpoint", application/x-nuxeo-liveedit;ext2="application!msword", /

  • Or you can force the detection of the Live Edit installation with a server side configuration:

    1. Edit $NUXEO_HOME/templates/common/config/nuxeo.properties.
    2. Change the value for the property org.nuxeo.ecm.platform.liveedit.config from client to server (uncomment the line if needed).
    3. Restart the Nuxeo server.

Windows 7 64b Environment

Nuxeo LiveEdit Microsoft Office is only compatible with Office in 32 bits. Beware about its detection inside Internet Explorer. For the moment, out of the box, it will only be possible with the 32 bits version of your browser.

To enable the detection of your LiveEdit installation with Internet Explorer running in 64 bits mode, you need to import this file into your registry (regedit).

  • Nuxeo LiveEdit Internet Explorer (64 bits) fix: 

As LiveEdit installer is only built in 32 bits yet, Windows will wrote the registry entries into a compatibility node (WoW6432Node) read by 32 bits application running on 64 bits OS, and this file will add necessary keys to the default registry node read.
