In the above FAQ:
Q. Can non-DAV applications be converted to use DAV?
A. ...The applications in Office 2000 are the first non-collaborative applications to be DAV-enabled, and others will surely follow...
...Microsoft is also providing a feature called "Web folders" which makes a collection on a DAV server appear to be a directory in Windows. Non-DAV applications cannot work with these folders because the files/folders are only an appearance -- they are not mapped into a local file system. A Windows "redirector" could be written to make them appear as a local file system, but until that time, applications will need to be changed to work with a DAV-enabled server.
So I am not sure if your Network Folders
will be WebDAV compatible in Vista
(since Win98 Web Folders
have been compatible with WebDAV but the Web Folders
feature has been removed from Vista)
as it seems to me that Vista has issues with WebDAV (see Google
I know it works in applications like DreamWeaver and as you say DAV is working by default in the XAMPP installation.
You may have to do some more WebDAV research on the methods you want to employ to use it's features in Vista.
for webdav on Vista
revealed some useful reading with what appears to be several solutions (possibly a Vista WebDAV patch
) by peeps having similar issues as you.
Take a look at the new DeskTopXampp
launch control for XAMPP
