  Asked By: Kristin    Date: Dec 14    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 838

This is my first time want to make a workflow document, and I'm using VS
2008 but why I cannot find the "microsoft.sharepoint.dll and some other
relative file.

Anyone can help me to solve the problem and tips or trick? When I have a
look on the reference, that have the warning sign on :

1. Microsoft.Office.Workflow.Tasks

2. Microsoft.SharePoint

3. Microsoft.SharePoint.Search

4. Microsoft.SharePoint.WorkflowActions

I suspect that you are doing development using VS 2008 on a workstation and not
on the SharePoint server itself. That is why you can't find  these files. You
need to do the development on the server itself.

That's not entirely true. You can grab the DLLs from the SharePoint server
and put them on your workstation; you won't be able to test your app
locally, but you can develop and compile.

For what it's worth, I've created a Hyper-V development server image with
MOSS and VS2008 all installed; it's a great dev/test environment, and I can
easily spin up another copy if I need it.

Didn't find what you were looking for? Find more on Cannot find some files on VS2008 Or get search suggestion and latest updates.
