“Only connections to SharePoint or SkyDrive servers are supported”

Here’s my second large-vendor bug report of the year, this time it’s Microsoft. The Document Connection in Office 2011 for Mac stopped working after recent updates. In v14.0.1 and v14.0.2 (currently the latest), when trying to connect to a Sharepoint site, you receive this error message:

Only connections to SharePoint or SkyDrive servers are supported

Enabling basic authentication on the Sharepoint server and in the Document Connection tool makes no difference. Other people are seeing the same behaviour. The only solution I’ve found is to roll-back to v14.0.0 which still has username and passwords boxes at the URL entry screen.

For those of you who don’t have v14.0.0 backed up, and don’t want the pain of reinstalling Office 2011, you can download Document Connection v14.0.0 and use it instead. I’ll remove the download once Microsoft fix this issue.
