Installing SharePoint 2010 on Windows 7

Filed under: SharePoint Technology — adamclark @ 8:48 am

At last, announced (publicly) at SPC09 in Vegas a couple of weeks ago, it is now possible to load SharePoint technology directly onto a Windows 7 machine (without a VM). This is something that has been missing in the product supporting development of complex solutions for some time. Microsoft have also already released an article on the steps required to install SharePoint 2010 on Windows 7 here:

There are still some prerequisites to take into account before you install SharePoint onto your desktop machine such as ensuring you are running a 64-bit OS and you have the right service packs installed (for Vista). However from reading through the above install article it all ‘appears’ fairly straight forward.

I myself look forward to giving this a go once the beta is released on the 26th November.
