    have actually tried this hotfix out and it works as expected. however, i always get prompted twice to key-in the username and password. after that it works fine.

    i am accessing this from iPad 2. i have also setup the AX 2012 enterprise portal using SSL.

    what could be the cause of the double-prompt for username and password authentication?

    I have tried this and it does not work as expected. It locks up whenever there is one of the green spinning animations. Contrary to the article's assertion, only Safari on Windows is supported. Safari on the Mac is still unsupported.

    You have to apply the hotfix mentioned mbs2.microsoft.com/…/KBDisplay.aspx for the lookups ( the green spinning animations)

    Hi Meyyappan!

    A couple of months ago I started a project that involves using EP 2009 and SharePoint 2010.

    I've been doing some progress by developing the website and the code behind, and by setting up the Sharepoint enviroment. The site works and fulfills the user requirements.

    Now my question is if you can tell me where to get information that allows me to improve site performance and look'n'feel. I mean if you know blogs, books, forums or other source where the author addresses those EP 2009 related issues in depth. I'm currently interested in CSS theming and in what is usual when you need to develop client-side logic.

    Could you show me some public website made with Sharepoint and EP 2009?

    Thanks in advance and keep posting!
