Map SkyDrive Pro for XP

We are currently moving a client away from a server to SkyDrive and Sharepoint on Office 365. Some of the users have Windows XP and we are looking for a more efficient way to access the users personal share on SkyDrive pro. Ufortunately, they cannot install SkyDrive 2013, so I am wondering if there is any way to map a skydrive pro folder in XP?

Yes, I saw that article, but that is not for SkyDrive pro users. It is only for SkyDrive users

Figured this one out - took quite some time. So a user on XP can map SkyDrive Pro by:
1. Turning on WebClient services to automatic start.
2. Running IE 8 or 9 (not even sure the highest available on XP).
3. Log in to (OWA) with credentials and selecting "remember my password" option.
4. Navigate to SkyDrive root folder.
5. Select Library from the top left corner and find the "open with explorer" option.

This will save a web location in explorer view that you can add to the desktop or wherever you would like to place the share.
