Hello I'm trying to create a sharepoint 2010 project. I have Sharepoint as well as Visual studio 2012 installed on a VM, but when i go to create a new sharepoint project it tells me "Sharepoint not installed" I'm guessing I have to configure something to see the sharepoint installation in the system and I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. Thank you in advance.

    I comprehend it as he has got SharePoint installed on his dev mashine Jun 12, 2013 at 6:50
  • Yepp, I misread the question, thanks! I think bullet 1 still applies even though it should work from start depending on your OS in the VM. Jun 12, 2013 at 7:46
  • Yes probably, it could also be some configuration error in the sharepoint installation Jun 12, 2013 at 7:48
  • I do have sharepoint installed on the same machine as visual studio.
