1) Word 2010 enables drag and drop upload
While using the Upload Multiple Documents menu from the actions menu in a library. I noticed that this page was transformed into a drag and drop enabled upload container.
You can simply select the files you want to upload en drag them into the page.
After pressing the OK button all the documents were uploaded.
The free Office 2010 beta version is still available for downloading, check my previous post for more information
Nice to have if you ask me!
2) Word 2010 cannot open a document from SharePoint
1. Open up Internet Explorer
2. Click Tools
Reference the system.EnterpriseServicess assembly to your project.
public void Update(DirectoryInfo folder_GAC)
//check if folder containing new dll files exists
//add each dll found in this folder to the Global Assembly Cache
foreach (FileInfo dll in folder_GAC.GetFiles("*.dll"))
//instantiate a new Publich object and install the dll
Publish objpublish = new Publish();
remove an assembly from the GAC can be done by using the GacRemove(string name) method.

Microsoft Office 2010 won't be released untill june 2010, but the beta is already available, for free. I took the liberty to download the new Office child from and installed it on my laptop.
Post Installtion Information to read
Microsoft posted a short list of Frequently asked questions about 2010 and the installation, you can read here:
Upgrade or Side-to-side installation
I didn't want to loose my installed 2007 version so I choose the customize button instead of the upgrade button.Then changed the settings to co-exist and finally changed the installation folder to C:\program files\Office2010 instead of C:\program files\Office.After several seconds the instalation was completed and I needed to reboot windows.
Outlook 2007 and 2010 cannot run side by side. This is also the fact for Groove 2007 and his 2010 versions called ‘SharePoint Workspace’.
