Setting up WebDrive (3rd party app) on Windows XP

Plan Compatibility:
  • iMeet® Central for Enterprise and iMeet Central for Agencies Customers have full access to Web Folders.
  • iMeet Central for Professional Customers have READ ONLY access to Web Folders.


Although Windows XP has native support for web folders, we strongly recommend using a 3rd party application called WebDrive. WebDrive allows you to map the network folder to a drive letter and offers a much better WebDAV experience on XP.

WebDrive is not free, however a free trial is available. Download the client from the WebDrive website and follow the steps below to configure it to connect to iMeet Central.

Note: It is very important that you configure WebDrive as instructed below (see steps 11-15). WebDrive can cause data loss in the form of lost revisions if not properly configured. 

Download and install WebDrive. For additional information see WebDrive Online Help. 
Run the WebDrive application and click New Site

Enter a name such as your company name
Choose a drive letter, then click Next

Select WebDAV as the server type
Check the box to Connect Securely, then click Next

Enter and use the default port, then click Next

Proceed with No Certificate and click Next

Enter your iMeet Central username and password, optionally saving the password. Make sure to enter your username in all lower case characters. 

Optionally check the boxes to Connect to Site now and/or Connect at login/startup, then click Finish

Select your new WebDAV connection and click Properties

Select Connection > DAV from the menu on the left and check the box to Enable Auto DAV locking. Enter all file extensions you intend to use. 

Some commonly used extensions are listed below. You can copy and paste them into the field. 

.doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .ppt, .pps, .pdf, .htm, .html, .txt, .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .png, .bmp, .psd, .psp, .rar, .zip, .raw, .rar, .wav, .mp3 

Select File from the menu on the left. Check the boxes next to Encode filenames in UTF-8 and Cache temporary MS Office files.

Select Cache from the menu on the left and change Cache Settings to Override global settings

Select Cache > Options from the menu on the left and change the radio button to Multi-user - Check with server to determine if cache files are up to date.

Click OK when finished.
