Sharepoint 2003 Document List Via Explorer Problem

Sharepoint 2003 Document List Via Explorer Problem

Hi, I'm having a problem where one of my document list which is working fine with the normal view but it is having problems in the explorer view and in explorer.  I get the error message

"\\server\sites\dept\document list" is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

A device attached to the system is not functioning

However the permissions are correct as I can browse via IE and another document list with the same permissions is working fine.

Anyone have any ideas?


RE: Sharepoint 2003 Document List Via Explorer Problem

For anyone else that has this problem.  I resolved it by giving the user "Everyone" Full Permissions to the C:\WINDOWS\Temporary Internet Files.  This has to be done via GP or command line.

This is the command line -

cacls "C:\windows\Temporary Internet Files" /E /c /g Everyone:F
