Installing SharePoint 2010 RTM

Published on Author Rob WindsorLeave a comment

I installed SharePoint 2010 on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 recently. There were several resources on the web to use as a guide, I found this one to be the best:

Setting Up the Development Environment for SharePoint Server

There are a couple main points you need to be aware of:

  • The setup contains a config file that must be edited to allow SharePoint to be installed on a Windows 7 or Vista
  • There are several prerequisites required before you install
  • There are a few hotfixes required after the install but before running the SharePoint Configuration Wizard
  • Install Visual Studio after you install SharePoint (this isn’t in the guide)
