office 2007 opens in read only mode on sharepoint 2010

I am running sharepoint 2010. I can open a dcoument from my personal documents in my site and get the prompt to edit in office 2007 but when I search for the document in sharepoint and open it from the search, it opens as read only and there is no edit toolbar available. The issue does not happen for office 2010. Webdav is not installed on the server (I saw this as a potential cause in an MS article)

Hello!

Usually when a document is opened in read only mode, that means someone else has it opened on the server.

Can you log into the server and check to see if that file is stuck open on someone else computer?

They don't have it open. The issue relates to office 2007 and sharepoint 2010 and only occurs for searched documents

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

First, check if "Permissive" is enabled in Browser File Handling under web application settings in Central Administration.

Yes its set to permissive, I don't want to affect any file permissions that are currently in place its purely to fix the problem with what the search is returning. thanks

Anyone?, I'm really curious to know how people are getting around this. There must be a mass of 2010 sharepoint servers with office 2007 clients.. If you run a search in sharepoint 2010 do you have the option to edit the document when it opens in word 2007???
