Install SPS 2003 with Visual Studio .NET

  Asked By: Joel    Date: Apr 25    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 973

I'd like to install Visual Studio on my testing SharePoint server. Has anyone done this? What are the steps? I'm not sure if it's going to work because of the Frontpage Server Extensions issues. Can someone point to something that may help.

I'm thinking if I can get VS.NET installed on a SPS server then I'll be able to much more easily debug the SPS object model, etc. Thanks in advance,

I think you can do the install  of FPE after sharepoint is installed. I usually just do the client extensions, but then again, I’m just running the ACT tool.

If you have existing IIS Web Sites extended as SharePoint Virtual
Servers they will be converted to FPSE 2002 messing up the SharePoint.
Your best bet is to remove SharePoint from your IIS Web Sites (leaving
the content database) and then remove the Web Sites themselves, install
VS.NET including FPSE, recreate your IIS Web Sites, extend your Web
Sites pointing to the correct existing content database. Depending on
how many IIS Web Sites you have, it will take roughly an afternoon.

I run VS.Net 2003 on the same development server as SPS 2003 (SP1). I didn't encounter any difficulties settings these two to work together. Developing web parts and such works fluently.
