Excel 2010 – Save & Send to SharePoint Issue

So, I have just finished installing (yet another) BI 2010 Virtual Machine, on Windows Server 2008 R2 RTM.
 
On this one, I was unable to use Excel’s “Save & Send” feature to publish a workbook to Sharepoint.
When I tried to use the “Browse for a Location” dialog, I would type in the Sharepoint URL, and got a message along the lines of “this application can’t open this location”.
 
Quite odd.
 
Turns out that you need the Desktop Experience feature turned on Windows Server 2008 R2 to allow this to work.
Thanks Alan Whitehouse! http://bit.ly/bk1VKW
