Was anyone able to get this running on Windows Vista 32Bit or Windows Vista 64Bit? The funny thing is, 32Bit throws a different Error than 64Bit.
While Vista 64Bit is complaining about some folder called DavWWWRoot, Vista 32Bit says no matter what the folder I would like to set up is invalid.
I found this fix here: Software Update for Web Folders but it didn’t help me, same error.
How did I setup the WebDAV Folder on Windows 2003 Server? Pretty straight forward in fact:
- Created a folder called WebDAV in my WWW root, in details: C:\root\domains\WebDAV
- My Website is located in C:\root\domains\WebDAV\domain.com
- I added a virtual folder to my website in IIS6, pointing to C:\root\domains\WebDAV and carrying the name WebDAV
- I disabled anonymous connections and just enabled Windows Authentication
- I made sure I got proper rights on that folder with my local Account
- I fired up “Computer” on my local PC, added a network ressource and filled in http://www.mydomain.de/WebDAV as path.
- I received an invalid folder error after typing in my credentials on Vista 32Bit, just using the domain without the WebDAV folder doesn’t help either.
- On Vista 64Bit I’m receiving another error includin something about a DavWWWRoot which is as far as I know the standard root directory for WebDAVs – I even tried calling my folder DavWWWRoot but it didn’t change anything
So I were not able to get it running on Vista x32 or x64. This seems to be a serious bug in Vista as XP seems to do just fine. I can even connect to the folder with IE7 after filling in the credentials, but no drag&drop supported anymore as you can’t open it as WebFolder in IE7.
Does anyone have a fix or workaround for that? It’s really pretty annoying, I can’t believe Vista implented a buggy WebDAV Gateway and noone cared about it after almost 6 months!
