Unknown Error Trying To Lock File

Office integration with the SharePoint is the most important achievement as it I the most commonly used product in day to day business activities. Every OS has its own advantages and disadvantages while working with some applications or with some products but we need to understand that if any application is not working just because of machine change/OS change then the problem is not with that application but machine compatibility itself and we need to find what exactly it is lacking and what will be perfect resolution for that??

Problem Description:
Facing problems while editing office documents on windows vista OS

+OS-Windows Vista
+Office 2007
+IE 7.0

Error Message:
Unknown Error Trying To Lock File

Action that needs to be taken when user will be available:
Did research and founds out that although SP1 fixes the issue, registry settings are required to make it work. More info on the KB Article below

Registry changes in case if we don't suggest windows Vista SP-1:
1)   Locate and then click the following registry subkey:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters
2)   On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click Multi-String Value.
3)   Type AuthForwardServerList, and then press ENTER.
4)   On the Edit menu, click Modify.
5)   In the Value date box, type the URL of the server that hosts the Web share, and then click OK.

Note:- You can also type a list of URLs in the Value date box. For more information, see the "Sample URL list" section in this article.
Exit Registry Editor.

If you have any queries/questions regarding the above mentioned information then please let me know.

I would be more than HAPPY to HELP you as well as RESOLVES your issues, Thank you
