DAVE software delivers commercial grade, two-way Mac file and printer sharing integration and collaboration with Windows infrastructures. DAVE technology underpins Thursby's ADmtiMac and ADmitMac PKI Active Directory management and security software. Thursby co-wrote the Mac-Windows SMB/CIFS standards with Microsoft in 2002, adding DFS support the same year. MacWorld reviewed DAVE as a "must-have" consumer product at the time. Today, in its ninth generation, DAVE has a professional and enterprise audience since the simple home and small business use cases are covered within the limitations and bugs of the native Mac OS X more...

This version is for classic Mac OX only! There is a newer version for OS X! Also OS X has built in support for WIndows smb by samba.

I've been using this at work to access Samba shares and I've had all sorts of issues with it. After installation it worked, but it stopped soon afterwards and now I find myself running the DAVE Setup Assistant every day. This software also takes control of your printing and you need to use the DAVE Printing system preferences instead of the usual system preference for printing. Printing is also messed up now. Apple's built in Samba is just awful (based on the environment in I'm at work) and DAVE is better, but it's totally unreliable. I've been in contact with their customer service many, many times but the bottom line is they can't fix my issues. This is the only software on my Mac I have problems with.

After experiencing serious problems with DAVE 8.0 in Snow Leopard - unfinished copies over SMB, disappearing files on SMB shares, errors deleting files on SMB shares - we were forced to uninstall DAVE. Once it was removed things returned to normal. Clearly DAVE 8.0 is not ready yet. Wait for the problems to be worked out first, as it is nearly unusable in its current state.

DAVE 7.1.2 works perfectly in Leopard.

I'm happy to report that after working with the developer, who was very helpful and responsive, DAVE 8.1 is working flawless for me now.

Worked for me with OSX 10.4 and Server 2K3. The server wouldn't authenticate me with built-in OS X Samba tools. With Dave - immediate success.

This is easier than trying to get IT to change the authenication scheme on the server installation (especially if there are only 2 Macs on the network).

This still exists? I used to use this on a machine running OS 8.1, but since OS X it seems pretty useless.

I have tried to use MAC's own built in settings to login windows networks and have not been able to.??
I purchased Dave and was able to login and reach file shares etc with no problem. BUT after upgrading to Tiger Dave 5.X would no longer work. I need to wait until they sent out patch etc. It turned out Thurbys
would not let me upgrade to 6.x unless I bought the upgrade. No new upgrade from 5.X even though I only brought it 9 months ago no upgrades what a rip off.

Everything this software does, Mac OS X can do already. Sort of like buying a steering wheel for a car that already has one.

I'm using Mac Os 10.1.5 but cannot find a Dave version which I can install. Either it's 10.2 or higher...or with Dave 4.0 it's OS 9.

Can anybody help me?

Sir, please do yourself a huge favor and stop using the near-unusable 10.1. I know this is a corny comment but really, 10.1 does not represent Mac OS X as a phenomenon.

Either go back to OS 9 or switch to either Panther or Tiger.

Furthermore, a fix to you not being able to meet system requirements, undoubtedly does not exist.

"Sixer", do yourself a big favor: note that the post you are replying to is about a year old and therefore very "stale".

Not likely the person will be checking your arguably redundant reply.
