          It's not clear if you're using WebDAV or CIFS.

          If WebDAV, make sure basic WebDAV is working ok with Office - i.e. can you File / Save As to a WebDAV path using the native Office menus?

          Please see the attachments with settings when 'Save to Alfresco' works ok and where 'Save to Alfresco' leads to the error.
          WebDAV is working ok with Office as I can File / Save As to a WebDAV path using the native Office menus successfully.

          It's not clear whether CIFS is working ok from the client in this failure case or not?

          If the CIFS setting is cleared, the add-in will fallback (correctly) to webdav.

          Suspect this is a duplicate issue whereby CIFS is configured, but not actually working.

          See linked issue for proposed fix.
