Anonymous Office File Opener

NOTE: This is a Farm Solution (Full Trust Code), NOT a Sandbox Solution

A SharePoint 2013 module that will allow anonymous users to open Microsoft Office documents without being prompted to enter credentials in the Office client.

If you have a SharePoint site set up for anonymous access, users will still be prompted to enter credentials when they open a document in the Office client. This is because of the client trying to communicate with the server for additional information/operability on the file.


This is a HttpModule that can be activated per Web Application by Web Application Feature and will ensure that anonymous users will not be prompted for credentials because of the Office client communication.

Installation and activation

Download from here (Ventigrate Codeplex Repository)
