First SharePoint Services 3.0 HOL Experience

Posted: October 6, 2008  |  Categories: Sharepoint Services 3.0 Uncategorized

In my previous post I downloaded a VPC from Microsoft ‘Developing with SharePoint Services 3.0 and visual studio 2008’ together with some hands on labs. On my laptop containing a Vista OS I did the following:

1) Deploy VPC

2) Start WSS-July2008-V7

3) Install Office On VPC (Plus version MSDN)

4) Unpack HOL

5) Start VS 2008 and exercise

I created a web part through HOL called HelloWorld, deployed it and added to a already created SharePoint site. Works like a charm. Downloaded HOL are already updated to VS2008. Al in all very straight forward, took me few minutes to set things up and 15 minutes for first exercise. I am going to try some more exercises coming days.
