WOOT – Web Folders works in 64 Bit Windows 7

Windows 7If you’re reading this you probably know that for some unknown reason Web Folders has never worked in 64 bit Vista.  Well, whatever the problem is with Vista it appears to have been fixed in Windows 7.  In our testing all of the Web Folders functionality works essentially the way it did in Windows XP,  Microsoft even added back (drum roll please…….) the ability to double click an icon to open a folder.   Now if they could just fix it in Vista…..

There are some minor annoyances, but those may be cleaned up in the final release.  Overall the Web Folders implementation in Windows 7 is a HUGE improvement over Vista.

If you need instructions on setting up a Web Folder in Windows 7 we have them at the MY Docs Online FAQ here.

Webfolders Instructions for Vista

As you may have noticed Microsoft’s WebFolders works somewhat differently for Vista. We have specific Vista related configuration instructions in the My Docs Online FAQ.

As always if you have any problems at all please let us know and we are happy to help with Webfolders configuration.

If you have a Mac or an XP machine the Webfolders implementation is unchanged.
