Fix: SharePoint Designer 2007 after SharePoint Designer 2010

I posted on http://yalla.itgroove.net/2012/02/install-sp-designer-2007-after-sp-designer-2010/ about my woes after I made the ill-informed decision to install SP Designer 2007 AFTER SP Designer 2010 – quickly trying to get it in there to work on a 2007 client project caused much shenanigans.

There were lots of nasty side effects including not being able to use the “Open in SharePoint Designer” links in SharePoint.

Solution: Run the Office 2010 repair routine –

  • Open Control Panel and click Programs and Features.
  • Right click the Office 2010 program that you want to repair, and select Change.
  • Next click Repair > Continue.
  • Restart your computer.

So far, so good, SP 2010 Designer behaviour is back to normal.
