SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I get this message:

Sorry, apps are turned off. If you know who runs the server, tell them to enable apps.

Please give me the steps to enable this.

This msdn article gives a start-to-end step-by-step for doing this. You've probably done some of it already, so just jump in where you need to. –  TZHX Dec 14 '12 at 12:29
Do you know if there is a way to handle this without buying a domain, but just on a testing environnement? –  Seb Dec 14 '12 at 13:14
Did you ever find a solution to your problem? I am having the same problem, and possibly because the SharePoint server instance is on a local network and there is no external domain set up for it. –  user16617 Apr 25 '13 at 9:17
