      Description

      We have run into a couple of issues during the OSP testing. The first is a conflict between Operating Systems for documentation and implementation. In the section of the OSP testing titled "Create a WebDAV connection in Windows XP" the steps are a bit different than in Windows Vista, which is used by Marist.

      There is no "Network Places" on the desktop in Windows Vista. However, there are two different ways that this can be worked around. The first, which probably isn't needed, is to go into the Start Menu properties and switch to Classic View for the desktop. However, you can also achieve the same results with the following steps:

      • From the Start Menu choose "Computer"
      • Next Choose the "Map Network Drive" tab
      • After that you will click on the "Connect to a Web Site that you can use to store your documents and pictures" link

      This will then bring you to an Add Network Location Wizard, which brings you to step #2 on the documentation.
