hi,

We have a user that is haing problems opening explorer view in IE8 it doesn't open and there are no errors. In mozilla it pops up with your client does not support opening the list with windows explorer.
I have uninstalled IE8 and used IE7 same issue re-installed IE8 same problem.

Any Ideas?

if you look at your windows services (start - run - services.msc), is the web client service running?

Hi Author,
This issue has been promionently observed..
Before diagnosing, please be informed that Windows Explorer recognizes Windows login (Base Machine Login), make sure the same login has some access to the site collection/library/folder.
