Posted by vivekcek on November 20, 2011

Good after noon friends.One more weekend gonna end soon.I tink i am so lazy now a days,havnt wrote any single thing after my last post.
Yesterday i got some time to learn something new.I am hearing about this sharepoint from 2007.But unfortunately i was unable to learn it because i don’t have any windows 2003 server to install sharepoint.Our company is planning to implement an internal portal to manage documents,blog,discussions etc.So i think why i cant study some sharepoint technology myself for some demonstrations of project management.
I started some basic study on sharepoint technology.I am listing out some point i got from net.

Hardware available with me

I am using a Dell Vostro 1014 lap with core2duo processor and 2gb ram.Core2duo is 64 bit,But dell only provide 32 bit drivers for my lap.No problem we can install Win 7 64 bit on this lap.

Software environment

1. I bought a windows 7 64 bit.Installed it with my old windows 7 32 as dual-boot.

2. Downloded SQL SERVER 2008 R2 EXPRESS 64 bit(with tools) and installed it.SQL SERVER 2008 R2 EXPRESS is free it only support 10gb database.

3. Download and install SQL SERVER 2008 R2 Native Client

4. Download sharepoint foundation 2010 and save in the given directory “C:\SharePointFiles”.
LINK:http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=5970 (SharePointFoundation.exe).

5. Save the setup in C:\SharePointFiles.

6. Open the command prompt and change to directory using the command “cd c:\SharePointFiles”.

7. Then issue the command “SharePointFoundation.exe /extract:c:\SharePointFiles”.This command extract files from setup and save in SharePointFiles folder.

8.Using a text editor such as Notepad, open the installation configuration file, config.xml, located in the following path: c:\SharePointFiles\files\Setup\config.xml
Add this line inside the tag.

<Setting Id="AllowWindowsClientInstall" Value="True"/>

9. Save the config file.

10.Install .NET 4.0 Framework.
11.Install Microsoft FilterPack 2.0. At a command prompt, type the following: c:\SharePointFiles\PrerequisiteInstallerFiles\FilterPack\FilterPack.msi
12.Install Microsoft Sync Framework (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=141237).
13.Install Windows Identity Foundation (Windows6.1-KB974405-x64.msu) (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/974405)
14.Manually enable each of the required Windows Features. You can do this quickly by copying and running the following command in a Command Prompt window.Wait it will take sometime.

start /w pkgmgr /iu:IIS-WebServerRole;IIS-WebServer;IIS-CommonHttpFeatures;^

15.To install SharePoint Server 2010 or SharePoint Foundation 2010, open a Command Prompt window, and then type the following at the command prompt:

16.On the Choose the installation you want page, click Standalone to install everything on one developer workstation.

17.After the installation is complete, you are prompted to start the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard.This step will create database files in sql server 2008 express.

18.Alternatively, you can choose not to run the wizard by clearing the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard check box and closing the completed installation dialog box.
then manually start the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard by opening a Command Prompt window and executing the following command:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\BIN\psconfigui.exe
