How to setup a development environment?

  Asked By: Parvesh    Date: Apr 02    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1180

I'm pretty new to Sharepoint and I'm in the process of moving
a Intranet site to WSS v3 environment. I installed WSSv3, SQL server,
Windows server 2003 in a VMware. But I don't know where to install
Visual Studio inorder to develop webparts and workflows and master
pages etc. I don't feel safe to install it VMserver because I cannot
allow multiple developers to access the same machine. But if I try to
develop webparts in my local machin...then I not seeing any
microsoft.sharepoint dll's in my local machine. ....pleas give me a
solution for this. I'm in a critical situation.

well you can browse to "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft
Shared\web server  extensions\12\ISAPI" folder on the server (where WSS
v3) is installed. i think all the dll files you need are there.

copy the microsoft.sharepoint.dll file over to your developer machine
and add it as a reference to the webpart project that you create in VS
and all the references will be there. (this is how i used to develop
web parts SPS v2)
please any one correct me if i am wrong.
