When using nVision drill-down option to excel users get a secondary authentication pop-up window. Upon further investigation although this initially looks like a Windows 7 issue it really is not, but Windows 7 functionality helped identify the real issue here. It is an issue with the option "browse in same window" being disabled AND "Allow public access" on the web profile being enabled. This is happening Windows XP environment also. If they disable the browse in same window option, which windows 7 did away with, AND they have the public access user enabled, which they must have to get their external SSO to work.
