Now I get a blank windows explorer window. My sysadmin claims he didn't do anything.

Extending the Windows shell with namespace extensions allows you to create some custom functionality for Windows Explorer. One common use is to enable Explorer to present a list of items that do not exist in one real folder, but actually reside in a number of places. The view on the folder makes it look like these items are in one place, so managing them becomes easier. This article illustrates the process of creating custom shell namespace extensions using C# and the .NET Framework. The author dispels some myths about the difficulty of writing such extensions, and shows that it is easier than it was before .NET. Along the way he outlines undocumented interfaces and describes advanced techniques for consuming them in .NET.

The Web-style interface is the default Explorer folder view for the Desktop Update in Windows 2000. The Desktop Update uses HTML-based hypertext templates to create the Web view, and you can customize these templates to include your own views and commands. This article shows you how the Explorer Web view works and how to build your own custom templates for it. You'll see how to add a command prompt and task buttons to a new folder view using HTML, script, and ActiveX controls. The shell object model and thumbnail shell extensions are also examined, then used to build a simple icon viewer for Explorer.

I am trying to troubleshoot an issue where some users of our SharePoint environment have problems using the open with windows explorer option in a document library.
For some users this works fine...ÃÂ the explorer opens quickly and they can manage the documents.
For other users it takes up to 5 minutes before the explorer view opens.ÃÂ During this time the browser becomes completly unresponsive.
As part of the troubleshooting process I tried taking the UNC path that is shown in the explorer view and tried using the Start -> Run and then entering in the path.ÃÂ ÃÂ ÃÂ This seems to cause the complete desktop to freeze until the explorer window displays.
This is occuring on Windows XP SP Pro SP2 with both IE6 and IE7.ÃÂ ÃÂ The desktops are on the same domain as the SharePoint servers.
Any thoughts on next steps?
I m sure this question has been asked before. I have a web application hosted under http://localhost/abc. which is mapped to c:\inetput\wwwroot\abc folder. I have APP_Code, App_LocalResources, BIN and other folders under abc folder. Everything is great. Now I want to create another application or sub application http://localhost/def. Both abc and def apps need to use some common classes and resources. Whats the best way to do it. I dont need to create a separate application for def. All i want is the url http://localhost/def.
I believe this issue got by so many people already.
We have a sharepoint site running on HTTPS protocol. There are some scenarios we get multiple documents from customers and need to move them to SharePoint to share them across organization. For this, what we are doing is, we are opening the library and from
Actions menu -> Open in Windows Explorer.
The windows explorer is opening fine and when we tried to move the files from local system to windows explorer of the SharePoint site, it is failing to copy data and showing 0KB moved. And at the windows taskbar it is giving notification like "Got network
delayed write fail message." when we are doing this on XP. On any other OS, there is no notification and not moving the file.
We are not able to understand the problem. Why it is not able to move, everytime it is copying 0KB.
We can do using upload multiple files feature, but we have to go back and forth between folders and it will slow down the process.
Please help me out, why it is happening... It is not network issue at all for sure.
For uploading or copying large number of documents i can use windows explorer view in moss.
Is this view requires administrative permission.
Suppose i have a workflow for each document in the library,If i copy in bulk documents to the library.will the workflow be attached by default.
