WebDAV / Edit-in-Place Issues with Microsoft Windows
Vista
Microsoft Windows Vista* has numerous problems with WebDAV access that affect all WebDAV
interactions. There is also a Vista-specific issue with applets that can prevent the Edit-in-Place
feature from working properly. Be sure you are running the latest version of Vista.
Vista users who are using Internet Explorer* might see a Java warning when they try to use Edit-in-
Place. Firefox users do not see this error.
To configure Internet Explorer to support Edit-in-Place:
1 Click Tools > Internet Options.
2 Click the Security tab, select Trusted Sites, then click Sites.
3 In the Add this website to the zone field, specify the URL of your Teaming server, then click
Add.
4 Select or deselect Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone as appropriate for
your Teaming server.
5 Click Close, then click OK to save the security settings.
