How do I setup Co-Authoring in SharePoint 2010?  Also, are there any dependencies?

Thanks

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

All you need to do is set the library to not require checkout.

Users must be using the same version of MS Office, and I believe the x64 version of Office doesn't play too well.

That's it!

Review this article.  If you want to truly co-author in Excel you will need Office Web Apps installed to your SP Farm.
