Map network drive from Office365 Share point library - windows server 2012

Hello,

On windows server2012 when i log on to office 365 on IE in the sites section and public site The "open in explorer" button doesn't work.  Also if I get the path to the shared data from another computer: https://officename.sharepoint.com/Shared Documents

I can't map a drive on the 2012 server to that location. It fails immediately.

I've done this once on a 2008 server.  Can anyone recommend how to allow this?

Thanks and best regards,

Sky

when you map the drive it should be

\\officename.sharepoint.com\Shared Documents

it should ask for credentials

thank you.  I don't think so. That isn't how I have ever done it before.  And that isn't the way I have done it on any of the win 7 or win 8 clients in the office.

Thank you. It is funny because I looked at this article earlier today.  But I overlooked the part about installing the "Desktop Experience" feature, which is what made all the difference.  I also installed the hotfix which made it work properly.

Thank you very much for your help.  Greatly Appreciated.
