Hi
I found this issue appears on local files for Office 365 too when Office wants to open it in protective mode. In Explorer or from office application there is no problem (file is opened in read-only) but from FreeCommander there is error message "Sorry, <PowerPoint/Word/Excel> can't read C:\...." with explanation of possible anti-virus issue which is not the case.
I checked in different ways and always had the same issue. Finally, accidentally opened the file(s) using Windows Explorer and there was no problem.
Majority of file affected by this issue comes from network (like public presentations, MS box etc.) and in explorer all are opening in "PROTECTED VIEW".
(version I using: FreeCommander XE 2016 Build 715 32-bit public)

Hi,

I still has issues with opening word/excel that have the
protective mode
enabled.

Anyone has a work around?
Or should it be fixed already in some FC version I don't have?
(Using:FreeCommander XE 2017 Build 740 32-bit public)

Nb, opening via windows explorer works, but we all don't like that option (else we wouldn't use FC) ;)

Thanks for answering in advance!

Try starting FC with admin rights.

It's starting with Admin rights.
In the properties of the .exe I set, "run this program in administrator mode"
(On my work user account)
Still some files in protective modes are not opening correct. Even with PPT sometimes it says that file needs to be repaired.
With windows explorer no problems.

Using office 2013.

Really too bad, as whole excel freezes when it encounters such a protective office file. (no option to know beforehand too)

spoils the whole FC experience

At least, thanks for helping.

It's probably general problem of all programs except Windows Explorer.
