Windows 7: Network location for SharePoint (Main Site)

11 Sep 2009   #1

Windows 7
Network location for SharePoint (Main Site)

Adding a network location for a SharePoint site in Vista, you were able to set http://servername and it listed all the sites in SharePoint as folders, and you could just navigate to any document library. In Windows 7 it just shows as blank. Try and create a folder and it says the filename is too long.

You can put in http://servername/sitename on Windows 7 and it works!

What do you need for it to perform as Vista did, as it was a great "Network Location" to add via GPO for all users, instead of scripting sites dependeant on the users group membership?

Thank you in advance!
