I am having major problems setting up a Sharepoint 2010 development environment (for home use).
I have the following setup.
HP Laptop (6 GB Ram, i5 processor, Windows 7 Home Premium, vs2010 professional sp1, sql server express 2008 r2)
The first route i tried was to download the vhd and run it using windows server 2008 r2, but after doing some research it became clear that this would not be very performant as i do not have enough ram (most people say more than 8gb is best).
I then came across the http://blog.mikehacker.net/2010/08/26/sharepoint-2010-development-environment/ post which looked like a better option for me.
I tried installing Sharepoint 2010 foundation but got a message saying something like 'Can only install on Windows Server r2'. I then looked about and found that it cant be installed in 'Home Premium' edition (there are some hacks that can achieve this).
I am now very confused, what option do i choose?
How do i move forward? Would Cloudshare do what i want?
Have you get any tips/online resources on how to progress?
Hope you can help.
