Explorer View problem in Windows 7 - Windows XP Mode

By rjespera ·
After upgrading some computers in our office to Windows 7 Pro from Windows XP, we've discovered that Sharepoint Explorer View no longer worked.

Error shows: Explorer View requires Internet Explorer 5.0 or greater and Web Folders.

After looking into several different settings and trying some suggestions on the topic, it became evident that it was some incompatibility in Windows 7 that was causing the issue.

To further test it, I ran the same application in a Windows XP machine, and it worked perfectly fine.

Thankfully, Windows XP mode is available. So for users who must use the Explorer View feature, we've have them run Windows XP mode in Windows 7. It works great!

Note: Sharepoint was running on W2K3 Server.
