Cannot create SharePoint document workspace from Word

When we create a document and go “Create Document workspace”, sometimes we are told that we are Offline. This can usually happen if we have SharePoint and Office installed within the same box, typically I hit this in development VM.

What to do? Turn out that this is a known issue with SharePoint. To get around this:

  1. Go to Administrative Tools > Services
  2. Stop the System Event Notification service

And voila! Now we’re online!
