Opening pictures in Explorer view

  Asked By: Cleveland    Date: Feb 24    Category: MOSS    Views: 1267

we've had MOSS running for a few months now and have just noticed this problem. Basically when we are in Explorer View for a picture library, if we try to open a picture up to look a look at it, Windows Picture and Fax Viewer opens and just says "No preview available." Has anyone else seen a problem like this?

The "WebClient" Service seem to be not running  on the client.
A good information/whitepaper about "Sharepoint Explorer view" can be found under www.microsoft.com/.../details.aspx, with explains that WebDav protocol has 2 "types" and different applications use these 2 types different.
For Adobe Acrobat Reader i found a interesting solution here www.omtool.com/products/swiftwriterPlugin.cfm.
But this tool works only with webdav and as the whitepaper tell us, this is only working over http and not over https connections (Windows XP).
