Mapping a Network Drive to WebDAV Share in Windows 7
Last week I was helping a friend finalize a build for their laptop. The last thing was to map a network drive to their WebDAV share to be available upon startup. Much to my surprise I kept receiving errors every time I attempted to map the WebDAV.
So off to the search engines and the trial and error game began. The following set of instructions is the combination of system tweaks that I found to successfully map our WebDAV share:
3.) Run Windows Update (Start > All Programs > Windows Update) to make sure the latest patches are installed on your system
4.) Install any necessary updates and Reboot Windows if necessary
5.) Make sure WebClient Services are active and starts on boot
8.) Map your WebDAV share as a network drive.
