Explorer view not working

  Asked By: Carlton    Date: Feb 16    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2463

when trying to switch to explorer view within a document library i
receive multiple logon prompts and eventually an error within internet
explorer that says page cannot be displayed. i receive this same error
when i try to cancel the logon prompt.

Currently i am running windows vista enterprise with IE 7 and our
sharepoint server is running WSS version 3.

so far i have tried the registry hack to allow basic authentication, i
have restarted and confirmed the web client service is running, have
added our intranet url to the trusted sites zone within IE, have also
recently read the white paper titled understanding and troubleshooting
the sharepoint explorer view... and after reading this it makes me
think i need to somehow force explorer view to use WebDAV... the
question is how?

I think you can force  WebDAV by disabling the WebClient service. I
haven't used IE7 yet, so no promises.
