Explorer view of MOSS 2007 site not working on IE8

Explorer view of MOSS 2007 site not working on IE8

when I’m working in shared documents, I’m trying to use the explorer view. It says ” Please wait while Explorer View is loaded. If Explorer View does not appear, your browser may not support it. ”

 


 

This seems a known issue; If you are not able to carry out your work without explorer view then you may try following options to make it work:

 

 

  • If still not working then try below (Make sure Web Client Network Protocol is installed in your client machine)

1. Go to START > RUN

2. Type _services.msc_

3. Locate the _WebClient_ service

4. Open the service and make sure startup is set to _Automatic_. If service is already stopped, you’ll have to hit _START_ after setting to Automatic.

 

  • Try deleting all the temp files in the following locations:

    c:\documents and settings\[Username]\nethood
    c:\documents and settings\[Username]\application data\microsoft\web server extensions\cache

    Then try running these commands in sequence

    net stop webclient
    net stop mrxdav
    net start webclient

 

  • Actions -> Open With Windows Explorer this will open a new Windows Explorer window that is in reality a web folder to the Document Library.
