I was wondering if it is possible to develop a solution using SharePoint Foundation 2010 with Visual Studio and to directly deploy the solution to a Share Point Server 2010 Site?
To deploy a SharePoint solution to the local SharePoint server
- In Solution Explorer, choose the project that you want to deploy.
- On the menu bar, choose Build, Deploy Solution. The .wsp file is created and installed on the local SharePoint server. Also, the features are activated.
Due to SharePoint Foundation is a subset of the SharePoint Server. Yes, it's possible to deploy a Sharepoint Solution that developed on SharePoint Foundation to SharePoint Server with the same version.
