Cannot open Explorer View in Sharepoint 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have the following incredibly frustrating scenario, consisting of:

    - Project Server 2010 installed on top of Sharepoint 2010 in a stand-alone installation on Windows 2008 R2. 
    - Desktop Experience and WebClient are both running on the server.
    - WebClient is running on my local machine.
    - My local OS is Windows 7 64-bit with MS Office 2007 and Sharepoint Designer 2010 installed.
    - Browser is IE8 32-bit

    When I try to change a document library to Explorer View I get the dreaded "Your client does not support opening this list with Windows Explorer" message. 

    However - I have another installation of just Sharepoint 2010 (i.e., no Project Server 2010), and I CAN change a document library to Explorer View in that installation.

    So the problem is that I have everything that needs to be turned on and/or configured correctly to view document libraries in Explorer View, and I can in fact do that in one instance of Sharepoint 2010 (the one without Project Server 2010), but not in the other.  A colleague of mine has has Windows XP on his local machine and he is able to view the Project Server 2010 document library in Explorer View in IE8 32-bit.

    Anyone have any ideas?
