Consider the following scenario:
  • You upload a .mht file to a Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 document library.
  • You create a custom column in that document library.
  • You edit the values of both the Title and the Custom column properties.
In this scenario, the .mht file is corrupted.


To fix this problem, apply the following hotfix package:

A .mht file is typically a MIME document that contains multipart or mixed content-type. The first or the main part of the file is HTML and the other parts support images or cascading style sheets. However, a .mht file can have a part that uses a multipart content-type that is defined in itself. This behavior confuses the built-in MHTML parser.

This hotfix lets a pluggable parser to override the existing built-in MHTML parser. Therefore, you can replace the existing parser with a no-operation (no-op) parser.
