Yes, VS Community 2013 (and 2015) supports creating SharePoint solutions and apps. I am working through some provider hosted app examples in it right now. The templates should be under C#(or VB) -> Office/SharePoint -- if you don't see them you may not have the Office Developer tools installed -- you can find them here: ...

Clear your temp files, and then re-download the 64-bit version of the filter pack from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=5CD4DCD7-D3E6-4970-875E-ABA93459FBEE Save it locally to your server, shift right-click the FilterPack64bit.exe and copy as path. Click Start --> Run, type CMD, right-click the command prompt and run as ...

As mentioned by @jubblerbug, this can occur if you already have .NET Framework 4.6 installed before SharePoint 2013 (e.g. if you installed Visual Studio 2015 first). I couldn't use Microsoft's workaround as the option to remove .NET Framework 4.5 was disabled, and the ability to uninstall the .NET 4.6 update wasn't there either. So I used Process Monitor to ...

It turns out that the Prerequisites installer was downloading a 0KB Geneva installation package, because the official Microsoft download URL is down (giving 404 errors). I found a working link to the installer: http://download.microsoft.com/download/8/6/6/866E86E1-2264-4C80-836A-92F3F3A3B1AB/release/MicrosoftGenevaFramework.x64.msi. So the steps were: ...

Firefox will work in most scenarios. However, at some points, SharePoint is still using ActiveX components, so Firefox won't work there. For instance: the Datasheet View option for a list in the ribbon will be disabled. Also, Explorer View for a document library will be disabled. In short: most limitations come from the use of ActiveX components, the ...

You also need .NET Framework 3.5 installed. Check under features that its available. If not, follow the guide How to install .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2

It's not the prerequisites installation which selects sql, but the SharePoint installation. To run on a real Sql Server select Server Farm and then Complete, NOT Standalone or Stand-alone: When you then run the Configuration Wizard you are prompted to select the SQL server: Images taken from How to Install SharePoint 2010 on Small Farm – Part 1: Full ...

Make sure you have your DOMAIN ACCOUNTS ready - without this only STANDALONE will be available, meaning that many services (e.g. UPSA) will not be working as they are not provisioned!!! - DO NOT use your LOCAL Administrator to configure the farm as this will be used as the Farm Account later, rather log in with any domain account that will be using further. ...

I also ran into this trouble spot one day when I was installing SharePoint 2013 for a client. Setup is unable to proceed due to the following error(s): This product requires Microsoft .Net Framework 4.5 So you need to check which version of .NET framework is installed on the server : • Set-Location 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework ...

For me the issue was that I was using Server 2012 R2 and had .Net Framework 4.6 installed. Apparently SharePoint 2013 installer does not play well if you have that version installed, it's a known issue with MS but they haven't solved it yet https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3087184. I managed to solve it myself by following this blog post: ...

I've used FireFox and Chrome to do most everything in SharePoint 2010. I have not run into any major issues. According to this article SP2010 has two support levels "Supported" "Supported with Limitations" http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263526.aspx

From the BizTalk Server software requirements: The Windows SharePoint Services adapter Web service requires SharePoint Server 2010, SharePoint Foundation 2010, Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 with Service Pack 1, or Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. So, if you want to use the SharePoint adapter for BizTalk, then yes - your BizTalk server will ...

If your Server has a static IP address and its a domain controller (Installed active directory and DNS services) without any error then you should be able to make it a Web Server, don't think if application server is necessity. Anyway it seems like someone else had same problem, but if you go through comments someone solved problem by resetting environmental ...

You can make that column required by going to List Settings and clicking on to the column, and then just clicking option Yes under "Required that this columns contains information". If you are using sharepoint Forms, then I think you need to create again the new form if you are making changes on the list after creating the new form. That changes will get ...

The SP 2013 exe installer needs a file named servermanagercmd.exe, which is not present in the windows server 2012 R2 OS. So we need to rename the file servermanager.exe, to servermanagercmd.exe which is located in windows\system32 directory. This is what has solved my problem.


1

I am not sure if this is recommended solution or not but I guess the the installer is trying to run the executable C:\Windows\System32\ServerManagerCMD.exe 2014-09-03 23:45:23 - "C:\Windows\system32\ServerManagerCmd.exe" -inputpath "somepath" Taking a look in the system32 directory, you'll see that in R2, ServerManagerCMD.exe doesn't exist! Source: Server ...

I would go with single server farm(1 sharepoint server n 1 db server). 24 GB is enough ram, you can run more than 2 vm... I have laptop with 32gb ram n i7....I have 6 vms, no issue so far. I used for my testing but I m not developer rather I m infrastructure guy. Create 2 VM, configure sharepoint install dev tools and enjoy.

Try to move the files to a "non-user-specific" place, like directly under c:\installation or so. It could be a problem of Access Denied

Probably you have an older version of .Net 4.5. Try to install the newest one. http://blogbaris.blogspot.ch/2013/08/sharepoint-2013-installation-endless.html

The solution that worked for me: Open Windows Update View update history Find the KB number in "Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 for Windows Server 2012 R2 for x64 (KB3102467)" Open "Program and Features" Search for the KB (KB3102467) and uninstall it Now continue the installation of SharePoint

On error line 10-12 the AutoSPInstaller is trying to locate the PrerequisiteIntaller.arguments.txt which is missing. Rename you arguments.txt to PrerequisiteIntaller.arguments.txt and run AutoSPInstaller again. It is common to get errors running the installation, but just read the error messages and solve problems as you move along. I usually run ...

it's an old post but just to precise a point. SQL Server Express Edition or Standard/Entreprise edition is needed in the Install. Following the above links in the article. Per Jakobsen said that only SQL Server Native client is mandatory it's not true. SQL Server Native Client is mandatory in the preparation tool (to communicate with SQL Server Express or ...

To fix just download thew new SPF2010 binary version 14.0.4730.1010

I my case the problem was with Trend Micro Realtime Scanner preventing installation. Stopping the service allowed the install to complete.
