Problem with STSADM

  Asked By: Anila    Date: Dec 11    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1409

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 extensions\12\bin\

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?

Open a command  prompt first and navigate  to the 12\bin folder. Then you can
add the switches you want.

Alternatively, you can create  a batch file that runs stsadm  with your
preferred command options; if you set the home directory (or just use an
absolute path), you can run  it from anywhere just by double-clicking.
