Tech Trek – 2013.03.22
Just another SharePoint trek day. I was checking Site Settings and got the following error while clicking Workflows:
"Failed to find the XML file at location 14\Template\Features\Office Mobile PowerPoint Viewer."
I’ve confirmed the feature definition doesn’t exist in that specific folder and so began my search for a possible resolution. I found the article below that recommended to restore the definition files. Now, where would I get those XML definition files?
As it turns out, I’ve noticed there is a “MobilePowerPointViewer” folder under TEMPLATES\FEATURES folder of 14 Hive. I copied the entire folder and renamed it into “OfficeMobilePowerPointViewer” and viola — problem solved. I’ve applied the same for MobileWordViewer after I got a similar error.
Another day, another mystery solved.
