MSSharePointDeveloper downloads updated


The introduction to SharePoint Development site has been up for four months now and we just posted an update to three of the downloads.



  • Downloadable WSS Dev VPC Image – This has been updated to Visual Studio 2008 (previously Visual Studio 2005). It’s also a smaller download at about 1.8Gb to download in 4 files now. The Virtual PC image includes:


    • Windows Server 2003 (expires on 29th September 2009)

    • Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SP1

    • Visual Studio 2008

    • Visual Studio 2008 extensions for Windows SharePoint Services

    • 10 Hands on Labs for learning SharePoint in C# and VB.NET

  • SharePoint Developer Introductory Hands on Labs – These are all updated to Visual Studio 2008 and they are included on the VM image. They are also available for separate download from the site

  • SharePoint Developer Introductory Web Cast PPTs and Demos – Previously two of these 10 webcast PPTs were missing transcripts, this has been corrected.

All three of these downloads, and the online MSDN Virtual Labs, are available at http://MSSHarePointDeveloper.com

    Why Sharepoint services only VPC? Why not have a similar VPC for Sharepoint Server too?

    I have downloaded WSS VPC, Many thanks. I have one question can i make this as domain controller (active directory) along with DNS?

    Will there be any issue performance wise or WSS service accounts etc?

    Hi Anand,

    There’s a MOSS VPC available at microsoft.com/vhd. We also have a developer focussed MOSS VPC based on this WSS one in progress to focus more on SharePoint development.

    Hi Marshall,

    I wouldn’t recommend this. But feel free to try.

    Cheers,

    Paul
