Features & STSADM

  Asked By: Billy    Date: Feb 13    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1156

I am reading "Inside Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0" Book
I am trying to create my first custom feature and I am trying to
install it and activate in my Sharepoint site.

So I have copied my Feature project folder into
c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server

and navigate to this directory

c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\web server

to run the STSADM.EXE to write the install command.

but when I run the STSADM.EXE, it is close him self after 3
seconds !!! So That I can not write any command line .

what is wrong with STSADM ? does I run it by using wrong way ? and
what is the line command that I can use to install my feature into my
sharepoint site?

You have to run  STSADM from a command  prompt. You cannot double click in
Explorer. You must open up a Command Prompt and cd to the directory
STSADM is in and run it that way.
