B.6 Unable to Open Pictures from WebDAV in Microsoft Office Picture Manager

Problem: When you attempt to open pictures from WebDAV in Microsoft Office Picture Manager, you see the following error message:

Picture Manager is unable to open pictures over the Internet that are not from a Windows SharePoint Services picture library. Please specify a valid picture library and try again.

This message occurs because Microsoft Office Picture Manager does not support the standard WebDAV protocol.

To work around this problem:

  1. Copy the picture file to your local machine, then open the file using whatever photo viewer you want.
