We are trying to run WebDAV on WIndows 2003 x64. This is our first attempt at using WebDAV and it doesn't seem to work correctly. We can open documents from the website but we cannot save them back to the website. Our desktops are running Windows XP with Office 2007. We have made sure that The web client is running and we've added the required registry entry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\....\OpenDocumentsReadWriteWhileBrowsing = 1 .

These machines are NOT in a domain. The webserver must be allowed to update the documents anonymously (no login). Anyone have any ideas?

I'm quite sure that WebDAV requires domain membership to work properly.  For example this article talks about how to get around that issue for Dreamweaver: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/190/tn_19095.html

Actually a DC is not required if you setup using Anonymous access. Its just getting all the right NTFS rights on the box to work correctly with IIS. And we found the solution. Because Microsoft in its round about way wanted to make everything backward compatible, we had to implement the x32 bit WebDAV on the machine to make it work correctly.
Here are the steps to do that:
1. Open IIS console.
2. Navigate to the Web Services Extensions node.
3. In the right-hand pane right-click and select Add a new Web service extension&
4. Name the new extension WebDAV 32-bit.
5. Click the Add& button.
6. In the Add File dialogue click the Browse& button.
7. Navigate to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\inetsrv\httpext.dll
8. Click Open, then OK.
9. Put checkmark in the Set Extension status to Allowed box.
10. Click OK.
11. Disable the WebDAV Web service extension.
12. Ensure WebDAV 32-bit Web service extension is set to Allowed, if not set it.
Once this has been completed, WebDAV worked like a charm!
