Troubles opening Windows Explorer from a Document Library in SharePoint 2010

August 4, 2011

Ever come across the issue where a document library refuses to open in Windows Explorer with SharePoint Foundation 2010?

I came across an issue – whenever I opened a document library in Windows Explorer, I was prompted with an Office install set up dialog, requesting for my installation disk.

Yes, I know, strange but it’s true.

To overcome this issue, go to services.msc on your PC/Server and ensure that WebDav client is started. In my case, it was disabled, stopped and well.. enabling it fixed the issue.

Here is a WIKI explaination on what the WebDav client does: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebDAV

Hope this helps!
