Can't open Mindjet files for our SharePoint site.

We have posted a Mindjet file to our SharePoint site and when someone tries to open it they are prompted with a save popup instead of opening the file. We are using version 2012. The icon on the sharepoint site is not a standard Mindjet icon for the file type either. What happens when you try to open it, you will get a popup with the options to Open/Save/Cancel, we select Open and we get another popup to Save/Cancel. We can save it locally and then open it, but we want to open it directly for the sharepoint site, is this possible?

We are able to open the file with Mindjet Viewer, but not with the full version. Is there something on the MindJet application that needs to be set to allow the files to be opened directly without it being required to be saved first?

Mindmanager Map File Association for Sharepoint

Summary:
This article describes how to add an icon for MindManger map files and how to associate MindManger map files to open in MindManger from a Sharepoint Site.

Dependencies:
Microsoft Sharepoint
Office 2007 and above on the client machines (Sharepoint OpenDocument Class included with Office will be used to open the MindManager Map files)
Admin access to the Sharepoint Servers

Instructions:

Place Document Icon

Copy the icon_document_mmap.png to your Sharepoint Hive image directory.
Typically
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\IMAGES
As an example for a Sharepoint 2010 server.

Setup the File Association

Locate the DOCICON.XML on your Sharepoint Hive template\XML directory.
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE
\XML

Make a backup of this file before editing.

Once you have a backup, edit the File.

Locate the section and add the following entries:

Save the file after you’ve added the entries.

Adding the MIME type Extensions to IIS

1. Open IIS Manager
2. Highlight the Host Level
3. Double Click MIME Types



4. Click add and add:
MIME type: application/vnd.mindjet.mindmanager



5. Click “OK”
6. Repeat for the extension “.xmap”

Once the extensions have been added, IIS will need to be restarted.
*Note this will impact connections to the server for the duration of the restart

At the top of your post, there is an 'icon'. I used this where your guide mentioned "icon_document_mmap.png"
I saved as...

next you have the lines...
Locate the section and add the following entries:

Save the file after you’ve added the entries.

As there were no "following entries" I found this elsewhere. (this page does not allow arrow character so your entries are missing)

(left arrow character) Mapping Key="mmap" Value="icon_document_mmap.png" OpenControl=""/(right arrow character)

instructions were to place in (left arrow character)ByExtension(right arrow character) section of xml file.

Icons now appears, but still get 'open/save' dialog, and then it saves to local temp internet.

Please verify that you have followed:
Adding the MIME type Extensions to IIS

Here is the missing section from the original post

Locate the
<ByExtension>
section and add the following entries:



<Mapping Key="mmap" Value="icon_document_mmap.png" OpenControl="SharePoint.OpenDocuments" />
<Mapping Key="xmap" Value="icon_document_mmap.png" OpenControl=" SharePoint.OpenDocuments " />

Thanks. Seems to work now with these Map Key you have provided. I also added .mmat, and .mmas to be like the above .mmap.

IIS was 'kicked' after each change...so it must have been my 'wrong/empty' open control statement that was causing it to ask when it should have just opened.

I have done all the above and still I am getting the save button instead of it just opening in MindManager. I have the demo version of MindManager installed

If you have a sharepoint environment with both an application and web server, which server does this need to be installed on?
