How to install to Web Folder

Hi,

I have a remote hard drive I access via https (WebDAV). I would like to install portable apps on my remote hard drive. However, when I run the installer, although I'm able to select the drive from the browse window, the Install button is never highlighted (clickable).

Also, I'd map the drive to a letter (as a work-around) but XP doesn't support this, especially when using SSL.

Any thoughts or ideas?

Thanks in advance.

When you can map your drive

When you can map your drive to a letter for read and write access, you might be able to do what you want. Could be pretty slow.

You could install to a local drive and then copy the whole directory to your webdav drive, and see if you can get it to work. All the installer does, really, is copy files in a convenient way.

Indeed, it could be extremely slow, but as internet speed increases, it could become feasible, and the geek in me just wanted to give it a try...

Thanks for the thoughts.
