SharePoint Solutions Tab in Project Properties Kills VS

  Asked By: Ganesh    Date: Aug 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1196

when I create a web part project using the SDK and the WSS3.0
extensions for VS, I get a "SharePoint Solutions" tab in my project

When I click on it, I get "TBD Initializing" and then a VS Error and
shut down.

What we're looking for is where we get the .webpart file.

You have to build the .webpart file  yourself. The easiest way is to go into
one of your sites and export a .webpart file from the webpart  gallery, then
change the values in that file to match your new project.

The WSS v3 extensions don't expose a .webpart file to you as the programmer.
Its all done in code when you run the webpart and it is deployed as a
solution. I have not found a way to get the .webpart out of the solution.
Since you can't even get in to the tab  you won't even be able to create  the
solution. I've seen this problem randomly before. For me if I closed and
re-opened the project  I could then get into the sharepoint  tab. Also, make
sure that you have set it to be signed before you enter the tab.
