Issues editing word documents within Nolij

Training Site

Many useful directions can be found on the Nolij Training Site

Internet Explorer

User running Windows7, will need to ensure they are using Internet Explorer 32bit for editing Word documents within Nolij. The 64bit version of IE will not launch Word upon clicking "Edit Document".

When Word won't open after clicking Edit Document

  • Confirm there are no java issues on the machine
    • Simplest way is to check the FileBrowser within Nolij. If Nolij shows local drive letters, then java is working properly.
    • You can visit the Java page to view information regarding the re-installation of Java
  • Confirm how the notes are being edited. If using IE on Windows 7 you should be using the 32bit IE. If you're using 64bit IE, FireFox or Chrome you will need to follow the instructions on the Nolij Training Site ( , page 50).
  • If the other steps failed, running a Repair on the Office installation is suggested. This repair should take 10 minutes to complete.

Internet Explorer Specific Issues
