Edit offline -> open as read only?

We are getting some problems when trying to "edit offline" some files.

When editing from certain users/workstations, all kind of docuements are opened as "read only". If the file is a word, excel and so on, Office shows in the tittle bar "Read Only", and does not allow to save the edited copy. If the file is a plain TXT, then a "sharing violation" error is raised.

I've been searching many hours in forums, and I'm pretty sure that is not a alfresco configuration/permissions issue. I've test two different users in the same computer and works fine, but the same both users in other computer can't edit offline.

I've tried several workarrounds like:

But unsuccesfully (yet).

Any clue on this ?
