,mmap file in SharePoint cannot open by MindManager direclty followed guide: https://community.mindjet.com/mindjet/topics/cant_open_mindjet_files_for_our_sharepoint_site

We are using SharePoint 2013. have changed from 14 to 15 folder.

The file type icon changes. But user are not able to realize that when they clcik the file in SharePoint, it doesn't open by Mindjest MindManager instead if is saved to local.
It works on my PC but it doesn't work on another pC. Is this related to the registry settings of Mindjet? Cause it doesn't open the server file via Mindjet client directly?

Does it make a difference if the map is checked out first in SharePoint? I have seen SharePoint behave differently when non-Office documents are checked in or checked out.

But we didn't quite want to go further on installing too much things on the server side. We only want to realize that the file stored in SharePoint can be opened by using Mindjet Mindmanager client. instead of opening it by browser. Is it possible?

In SharePoint, the server controls what the browser does. There are a couple of other ways to work with non Microsoft Office files:
- You could embed .mmap files inside Word documents and upload the Word document to SharePoint. This means going via Word each time you want to edit or view a map, but SharePoint will be happy with Word documents.
- You could sync a SharePoint library with a local folder, and edit .mmap files direct from there. This bypasses check-in/check-out and other metadata, though.
