hi guys, i did everything you are saying here, but for some odd reason when i click on Open with Explorer, i get a dialog box that is asking me for a user name and password to connect to ourdomain.sharepoint.com
when i enter my username and password that i use to log in to office 365, it doesnt accept it.
what am i doing wrong?
also forgot to add that i am running Win XP SP3 with IE 8
Hey jpbarthet - we had similar issues with Vista, it was less down time to upgrade to Windows 7 if that's an option? A Microsoft Windows Intune subscription would give you upgrade rights to this as well as anti-virus, anti-malware, plus remote updates and installations - its a very good product.
It might be an easier way to go then trying to get an old operating system working with Office 365.
