I have a sharepoint server (WSS 3) set up which users log into from their PC with a user name and password (so no NT authentication). They can then go to a document library and check out a Word 2007 file for editing in Word 2007.
If I then go directly to the document (which is now in Sharepoint Drafts under My Documents), I can open it (it requires authentication again). I can then edit the document and save it and close it.
If I then go back to the document library and do a check in, I get an error that "This document was checked out to your local drafts Folder but the local copy could not be found or is on a different computer. Upload the local changes or discard your checkout to continue editing."
The document is on the PC and is in the drafts folder where it was originally put.
One thing I've noticed is that after I go into Word and authenticate, a registry key to do with the offline files disappears.
Has anyone else seen this issue?
