WebDAV fix for Vista

Posted Tue, May 29 2007 14:55 by bill

If you're using Windows Vista and are unable to add a web folder (http network location), and you're getting error message like :

"The folder you entered does not appear to be valid. Please choose another."

Then try downloading an installing this update for WebDAV from Microsoft. It worked for me J

Didn't work for me.  I installed the update, rebooted the Vista computer.

I have tried connecting using the following

http://fqdn/folder

http://fqdn:80/folder

https://fqdn/folder

https://fqdn:443/folder.

Each time the authentication popup appears, and I enter in user/password, and then after OK. I get the error:

"The folder you entered does not appear to be valid...."  

I have tried this on a brand new install of Vista Business, with and without the update, and still doesn't work.

Works fine with my old XP client, and with the Mac, using MacOSX.

I have googled for this problem, and I am amazed at how few people are reporting this problem.

Cheers.

Hi John,

That's strange as it certainly fixed the problems I was having.  I would suggest trying to apply the patch again, definetly reboot afterwards, and then check to see you have fiel sharing allowed on your network connection and firewall etc.
