- The AODocs WebDAV client is being deprecated. It will soon no longer be maintained.
- You can launch Microsoft Office on your computer using the AODocs Smartbar without installing the AODocs WebDAV if you're using Microsoft Office 2010 SP2 or above. If you're using a version before this, you're recommended to install UFO.
The AODocs WebDAV client is a small program (less than 100 Kb) that enables the AODocs Smartbar to launch Microsoft Office on your computer, when you open a Word, Excel or PowerPoint file from the Google Drive user interface via the AODocs Smartbar.
This client is for Windows. Mac users don't need to install the AODocs WebDAV client to use this feature.
