Enabling SharePoint Integration through Internet Explorer

This requires making a modification on your locally hosted SharePoint server.

This integration is only supported on SharePoint 2007, 2010 and 2013.

This is a global change which therefore can’t be made on a site by site basis.
  1. Download the icpdf.gif icpdf.gif (right-click > Save target as), and then add it to the correct folder for the version of SharePoint that you are using:
    • SharePoint 2013: %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\15\TEMPLATE\IMAGES
    • SharePoint 2010: %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\14\TEMPLATE\IMAGES
    • SharePoint 2007: %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\IMAGES
  2. Navigate to the current path for the version of SharePoint that you are using:
    • SharePoint 2013: %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\15\TEMPLATE\XML\DOCICON.XML
    • SharePoint 2010: %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\14\TEMPLATE\XML\DOCICON.XML
    • SharePoint 2007: %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\XML\DOCICON.XML
  3. Add (or replace) the following line into the DOCICON.XML file:

    <Mapping Key="pdf" Value="icpdf.gif" EditText="Bluebeam Revu" OpenControl="Revu.Launcher" />

  4. Save the change to DOCICON.XML, then restart IIS. The service must be restarted before SharePoint users will see the change.

Accessing SharePoint without Internet Explorer Integration

You can also check in, check out and view files from a SharePoint document library directly within Revu without the Internet Explorer integration. To enable the direct integration within Revu:

Revu 2018:

  1. Open Revu and click Revu > Preferences  or press Ctrl+K.
  2. Click InterfaceFile Access.

Revu 10 to Revu 2017.0.40:

Microsoft® no longer supports Windows® 2000, XP, and Vista. With this in mind, we’re unable to provide support for Revu versions that are incompatible with currently supported versions of Windows. As a result, Revu versions 11 and 12 are only supported on Windows 7 SP1 and 8.1 while Revu versions 8, 9, 10, are only supported on Windows 7 SP1. To confirm whether or not your software will run on a supported version of Windows, please refer to the Revu Compatibility Chart. If you’d like to run Bluebeam Revu on a supported version of Windows, you can purchase the current version online from the Bluebeam Store.
  1. Open Revu and click Settings revu-settings-32x32 > Preferences properties or press Ctrl+K.
  2. Click File Access in the list on the left.

Revu 8 and 9:

  1. Open Revu and click Edit > Preferences or press Ctrl+K.
  2. Click File Access in the list on the left.

Here you can add SharePoint login credentials. To setup a login click Add, choose SharePoint from the drop-down list and enter your login name and password. Revu can also store login data to suppress any future prompts.
