This guide on MSDN tells you pretty much everything you need to know on installing SharePoint 2010 on Windows Vista and 7. As an aside, if you're going to be doing SharePoint Development, you'll really be wanting to do it in a virtual machine running Windows Server 2008. You might need a bit more muscle in your host system (at least 6GB), but SharePoint can ...

First thing would be to make sure that the second provider has the "enable client integration" option enabled for the authentication provider used by your app in Central Administration. Second thing would be to compare the actual version of WSS used on each provider. It is possible that the second provider is out of date. Lastly, fire up Fiddler and open ...

This is the official guide from Microsoft: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee554869.aspx I tried these instructions and they did not work. This could be due to user error though.

Developing for SharePoint for SharePoint with VS2010 requires running it on a machine with SharePoint installed locally. I would not recommend doing the Windows 7 install of SharePoint as you do not get full functionality of the Server edition with a Windows 7 install. Sounds like you have the RAM to run a virtual machine. I would recommend doing a Windows ...

I installed using the MSDN procedure noted above. Just make sure you have lots of RAM. I could never get it to complete installation with less than 4GB. My current Win7 laptop has 8GB RAM, and I regularly see 4+ GB used by SP processes, SQL Server processes and IIS worker processes. My machine has a 2-core 2-thread CPU (Core i5 520M) for a total of four ...

As I suggested in answer to Virtual Machine for Sharepoint 2013 one option is to use VHD Boot as the Hardware and software requirements for SharePoint 2013 Preview are pretty high. Currently you can use Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate (RC) for free.

Enabled named pipes on SQL Server 2008 R2 Why Named Pipes and not TCP/IP? I never had any problems on W7 using either SP Foundartion or SP Server against SQL 2008 as long as I enabled TCP/IP on the SQL Server. Never tried Named Pipes or Shared Memory though. As for the Hotfix: You're right, SQL 2008 R2 doesn't require any additional hotfixes.

Typically when I start, I'm using more than just two accounts. Different services should be on different accounts, and you will want at least one account for the app pools. It is also best practice to use a separate account while running the setup process. When running the New-SPConfigurationDatabase script, try providing the mydomain\spf_database ...

I figured it out! The same issue has been plaguing me for some time. Apparently, VS 2010 uses WMI to control IIS during a redeploy. Without the features enabled, I got the same "Invalid namespace" error. The solution was to: open the Turn Windows on or off menu in the Control Panel (under Programs), and enable WMI compatibility. The path to the feature is: ...

WSS 3.0 (SharePoint 2007) does not support installation on client operating systems. You need to install it on Windows Server 2003 or 2008. EDIT: Bamboo solutions does have a setup helper that allows you to install WSS 3.0 on Vista or Windows 7 but I don't know what limitations there are or how well it may work. YMMV. ...

There are several disadvantages to SharePoint development on your core Windows 7 desktop. In addition to the many services that SharePoint utilizes (which will be consuming resources on your desktop event when SharePoint is not running), you cannot deploy some of the core services applications to Windows 7, including the User Profile Service application, ...

In my case, the step that was missing was to add the website to my list of trusted sites in Internet Explorer. That takes the list of pre-requisites to: Enable the WebClient service in Windows (if you're using a Windows Server environment, you need to enable the Desktop Experience feature of Windows Server) Add the website to the Trusted Sites list in ...

There are several options for setting SharePoint development machine. A. If you have enough RAM (and you have it) you can run it on virtual machine (VMWare is best option) with Windows Server 2008, VS 2010 and SharePoint installed on it. Pros: You can easily move your virtual machine because virtual machine is not hardware based in this scenario ...

I was able to come up with a solution that worked for us: 1) In the Web Application settings for this web application I set the file handling to permissive (to prevent the "noopen" header from being added to DWG files) 2) To simply open the documents read-only, the users can now just click the document in the library and hit open. 3) To edit documents, ...

How about trying this? Create a PowerShell script that runs every 1.5 hours and downloads the contents of a page?

The empty Guid here actually is not concerning. The SiteSubscriptionId will always be a blank Guid unless you have multi-tenancy enabled in your environment. Enabling Multi Tenant Support in SharePoint 2010 You may need to add permission for your user on the User Profile Service Application. In Configure User Profile sync connections they were trying to ...

I have used SharePoint installed directly on a 64-bit Windows 7 laptop for development without problems. Admittedly it is not the easiest thing to set up, but once it's done it seems to be a perfectly satisfactory solution. Having said that, it is preferable to install on Windows Server, all other things being equal. In your case you have lots of RAM so I ...

I haven't tried this on Win7, but on Win2k8 Server, this is a common issue. You have to disable the loopback check. Check out http://davidlozzi.com/2011/10/07/cant-log-into-sharepoint-from-the-console/

running SharePoint Server 2010 on Windows 7 is generally a bad idea and especially if you're using Local System and Network Service! To successfully run the User Profile Service App you need proper domain accounts. Don't waste your time to get this to work. Invest in a virtual machine (Hyper-V, VMWare, VHD boot) and run it on Windows Server with proper ...

The way i made it work when after enabling WebClient and adding to trusted website the "explorer" feature was still not working, was very simple. The issue is in IE9 64-bit, Windows does not allow you to download it from the website but installs it automatically when you install 64-bit version. So the only thing you need to do is to go to start menu and just ...
