SharePoint Doc Lib ‘Open with Windows Explorer’ not working in Server 2008 R2

 

I had this problem today in my dev VM, when clicking the ‘Open with Windows Explorer’ link on a doc lib nothing happened.

It seems to get it working in Server 2008 R2 you need to install the ‘Desktop Experience’ feature – once installed and rebooted it works like a charm.

I’m not sure if this works the same for plain Server 2008.

One to remember for later! Smile
