Setting Up WebDAV in Windows Vista

You can use WebDAV to manage the files in your Wild Apricot account.

To use WebDAV on a computer running Windows Windows Vista, you must install Microsoft's Software Update for Web Folders. You can download this from the Microsoft Download Center at: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=17C36612-632E-4C04-9382-987622ED1D64.

After you've downloaded and installed Microsoft's Software Update for Web Folders, you can map a network drive to your Wild Apricot account, then connect to the account.
