      Description

      Please add to:
      Alfresco Documentation > Using Alfresco > Using Alfresco Explorer Enterprise Content Management > Getting Started
      Mapping an Alfresco space to a drive

      The information from:

      http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2123563
      and set HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Common\Internet
      BasicAuthLevel = 2

      which lets Office 2010 open files from an webdav drive mounted over a non-secure connection.

      Office 2010 is becoming very popular and a lot of customers seem to be using it to access Alfresco over webdav. They will usually be using it over non-SSL.

        Yes. This is a limitation of the Windows client so not really anything to do with the version of Alfresco.

        Update now available - http://docs.alfresco.com/4.0/topic/com.alfresco.enterprise.doc/tasks/tuh-maptodrive.html

        To QA:

        Confirm that step 3 now has additional steps d to f containing additional steps detailed above.

        (After discussion with Jay extended step 3 rather than adding a new step 4 to make it clearer)
