Accessing teams and new document in office.com

Post by andy.t » Wed Sep 16, 2020 6:35 pm

Hi, I can no longer access/display teams.microsoft.com in a CEF browser - It redirect the URL and just shows a blank page.

Also when opening a document in word/excel/powerpoint online, I get the following message.
"Unable to create new documents
We're unable to create a new document at this time. Please try again later.

If this problem persists, you can try to create a new document from OneDrive."

Any ideas on what might cause this problem?

Many thanks,
Andy.

These CEF issues might be related :

Edit : If your issue is not related to webcams you could try using a different user-agent string. Some sites think that you're using Chrome and they have problems with CEF because it's missing some features available in Chrome.

I almost fogot...

Please use the latest CEF4Delphi version. Some previous versions had issues with POST requests and that could be the cause of this problem.
