How to Install Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SP1 on Vista x64/x86

If you are a developer for SharePoint your best friend has been Virtual PC or VMWare. It’s time to introduce a new friend, Bamboo Nation's SharePointOnVista J

We have put together an installer that allows you to install WSS3.0 SP1 on Vista, both x86 and x64.  This will allow you to develop on your workstation with all the power of a non virtualized environment. You still need VPC and VMWare so don’t feel sorry.

There’s been much discussion about SharePoint being a "bad" I think we all as SharePoint developers have built our “virtualization skills” to a comfortable level now so it’s time to give us a break ;)

So please download the setup helper and try it out. I really want to hear from you about problems you encountered so we can fix them.  Please leave your comments here or we can discuss in this forum. It would be nice to hear about successful installations too J

UPDATE: If you run Windows Vista Home Premium IIS only supports Basic Authentication. Therefore you MUST manually enable Basic Authentication in the IIS management console. 

UPDATE: John McBride has posted a solution for all of us that runs Vista 64 bit so we can install the new VSeWSS 1.2 with support for VS 2008. Just go here to see how to solve it. Thanks John!

You no longer need this workaround since the latest version of VSeWSS 1.3 CTP supports 64bit operating systems and we have successfully installed it on both Vista and Windows7. Look at this post for more information.

UPDATE: Jim Parshall has created a detailed video tutorial that walks you through everything you need to do to get WSS running on Vista. It's pretty big so it takes a while to download but it's well worth it. Click here to get the video. Thanks Jim!

UPDATE: If you are installing on Windows 7 RC (build 7100) you need to read this post before continuing.

If you are interested to know how we did it read this post.

Current limitations:

  • You must select the Advanced option during install.
  • If you want to run on SQLExpress, manually install it first.  Get it here.
  • You have to manually enable IIS7 with the proper options (explained).
  • Your workstation has to be part of a domain. UPDATE: This is not required.

 

Here’s how you install it.

First download the installation helper and the correct version of WSS with SP1.

Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 with Service Pack 1

Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 x64 with Service Pack 1

Go here to download our Setup Helper file

Now run the setup helper (WssVista.msi).

wssvistainstall_01

You will see an UAC prompt select Continue to proceed with the installation.  

 

 

 

Once the install has completed you will find the SetupLauncher.exe in the install location you selected. If you didn’t change the default option you will see it under the directory ..\Program Files\WssOnVista\Setup

Configuring IIS7

Before we go any further we need to make sure IIS7 is installed with all required options .

Go to Control Panel and click Programs.

 

 Under Program and Features click Turn Windows features on or off.

 Under Windows Features select Web Management Tools and World Wide Web Services. Enable at least the following options and choose OK.

Wait until Windows has configured all options.

 Installing Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SP1 on Vista.

After completing the above steps it’s time for the interesting part. Locate SetupLauncher.exe and start it. You will once again see an UAC prompt, select Continue.

wssvistainstall_8

After the SetupLauncher run, select the WSS installation file Sharepoint.exe, or the MOSS installation file, and click OK.  First, the package will be extracted.

After the files have been extracted the WSS setup program will be started.

The current version only supports the advanced installation option so select that one.

Select Web Front End when asked about Server Type. The database will be created later.

(If you are installing MOSS select the option which installs all services on the Web Front End)

 Sit back and relax while SharePoint is being installed, you are running Vista remember ;)

Hopefully you will see the following screen at the end of the installation. If you would get an error during the installation step try to run a Repair.

 

Leave the checkbox checked and click Close to run the Configuration Wizard.

wssvistainstall_10

At the second screen select the option to create a new server farm.

wssvistainstall_12

Specify your database server (e.g. MYLAPTOP\SQLEXPRESS) and account information.

  config

     
image wssvistainstall_16  

  Let the Configuration Wizard do it's work.

image

And you should end up with this screen, congratulations!

The final result is WSS running on Vista, Enjoy!

 

/Jonas

Note: Remember that this is a "beta" product tool from Bamboo.  Do not use it for any production work, as well as the usual "backup your system before install this program".  Obviously, running WSS v3 or MOSS on Vista is not a supported environment by MS. 

UPDATE: This article has been translated into Serbo-Croatian by WHGeeks.

UPDATE: Additional discussions and solutions on instalation issues can be found in this forum.

UPDATE:  If you run Vista Home Premium you have to enable Basic Authentication in IIS, if you don't you will only see a blank page.

Here's how to do it:

Open up IIS management console and Enable Basic Authentication. You have to do this for ALL Web Applications you are creating.

Vista.Home.EnableBasic

Good to hear.

Yes you can install MOSS. With this version of the installer you have to rename the file OfficeServerXXX.exe to SharePoint.exe and then run it.

We will post an updated version soon.

John,

Thanks for the info.

We will investigate this further. When we installed without being joined to a domain the DCOM permissions to the IIS Admin Service didn't allow local launch access so you couldn't create new Web Applications and you got some other access denied errors.

If you don't see the option to create new Web Applications check the event log for DCOM launch errors and then you can manually grant these permissions using dcomcnfg

Aditya,

I'm not sure what you mean by "get stuck".

You must have either SQL Express or SQL Server installed.

Type in the SQL server name (If you have a named instance put in the instance name)

Enter the access account, I always create a new local account (wssCaAppPool or similar) and I don't add it to ANY group. The SharePoint configuration tool will add it to the proper WSS_xxx groups.

I have a Vista Home and SP1 installed. But, still at the end of the installation the configuration manager page is empty as other people reported here.

Any help?

Your tutorial is broken at the beginning.  You MUST install sql first. And broken at the end.  Blank page for the configuration webpage. Also no shortcut (and no other way to start it for that matter) for opening the configuration page.

I was looking out for options to fix this blank page for configuration Manager. But, no success yet. One of the solution offered was to move the Sharepoint assemblies to .NET 1.1 instead of default 2.0. The reason mentioned was Sharepoint uses 1.1. Not sure if I got it right or this is a right solution. But, did not worked for me.

You must enable Basic Authentication for all sites manually from the IIS administration console. IIS7 doesn't support Windows Authentication in Vista Home Premium.

Vista Home Premium:

When I enable Basic Authentication manually, I have access to the Central Administration. I can add a WebApplication successfully.

If I try to Create A Site Collection for the WebApplication, I get the Error "Cannot complete this action". I enable Basic Authentication to "Intranet" and reset IIS, but I get the same error message. Some idea?

Peter,

I don't fully understand this "The sharepoint service account of my W2003 Domain has full access to the SQL 2005 Server"

1) Are you interactively logged on as a user with enough permissions in your SQL Server when you run the ConfigurationWizard?

2) This account has to be a Farm administrator.

Look in your SharePoint logs 12\LOGS and see if you can find the following message or something else that can help you.

The SPPersistedObject, %s, could not be updated because the current user is not a Farm Administrator

We have successfully installed on XP 64bit. You can only run on XP 64bit since IIS6 is required.

You will get an error at the end of the install but disregard this and run the Configuration Wizard.

Since IIS6 on XP only allows one active Web Site you have to manually turn on and of your active Web Site from the IIS management console.

nix_123,

You can use stsdev or a similar tool to deploy your wsp solutions directly from the IDE.

http://www.codeplex.com/stsdev

The fact that you are running Basic Authentication has nothing to do with deployment "problems" all deployment is using the Object Model natively.

What you MUST do is launch Visual Studion as administrator "run as administrator".

Hi,

Does anyone experience VERY slow response on launching the WSS 3.0 Central Admin Page. It takes about 20 secs on first load, and my PC has 4GB RAM and 2.44 GHz Quad-Core and Vista Ultimate, so I thought that was pretty slow response. It happens on first load or when I re-load it after accidentally closing my browser that connects to Sharepoint. It can be pretty frustrating.

Is it just me? Does anyone know a tweak to prevent this? Is there like a cache setting I could adjust?

Sometimes, I think when the browser that displays Sharepoint is idle for say 10 minutes, and then do something, say, switch from Home tab to Operations tab in the Central Admin, that also takes a while. My other apps are alright (eg, VS 2008, SQL Mgmt Studio, IE/Internet), so it is just WSS 3.0.

Thanks in advance!

This installed well on Vista Home Premium.  I had a couple of errors; I ignored them; did a reinstall, selecting the REPAIR option.  

I can get into the Sharepoint Admin now.

The install is fine.  I can get into Sharepoint admininstraiion OK.  

PROBLEM:  If I create a Sharepoint Website I cannot run it.  I get IE cannot dipslay the page message.

It works only if I extend the Sharepoint Admin site.

How do I get it to run when I create an  IIS site thru SP

Hi

The install works fine for WSS 3.0, except that the installation fails at step 2 of step 9, while creating the configuration database. It gives a "FileNotFoundException".

I am giving the admin user privileges to connect to the SQL Express.

Is it because of no Active Directory on my Vista Home Premium Laptop,

Have you tried to run the configuration wizard again?

Disable any virus scanning software during the install.

SamTheMan,

You say you run Vista Home Premium, do you manually enable Basic Authentication in IIS after creating the Web Application?

If you guys still get errors please post in the Forum and we will try to help you.

Hi,

I am trying to install MOSS 2007 on Vista Business SP1. I was getting a compatibility issue because my MOSS install was not the latest service pack so i extracted the SP1 .exes to the Update folder. This got me past the compatibility error.

BUT, as other users have said, on the DVD the Setup.exe does not work with the installer. So i downloaded the demo version as suggested, and now i get the same compatibility error because it is not SP1 either.

Any suggestions???

When you run the install WITHOUT the helper you should see a message saying that Windows 2003 is required if you don't see this your exe is most likely corrupted.

This is the message on a US install:

"Setup is unable to proceed due to the following error(s):

This product requires Windows Server 2003 SP1"

Try to download a new copy.

I was able to use the MOSS on the DVD. First, I had to copy the contents (not the folder) of the x86 folder to the \temp\xtracted folder (which means I have 2 copies). Then I renamed svrsetup.dll to wsssetup.dll. When I started the bootstrapper, I pointed to the original location, where I renamed the setup.exe file to sharepoint.exe (not really necessary). I got a message about selecting the correct command line options (because there's nothing to extract) which I dismissed. The bootstrapper then used the setup in the xtracted folder and ran the install.

Thanks Jonas, I use your tool to set up development environments on Vista all the time. It's much easier/cleaner/less expensive than the VM approach. One important note for now:

The Visual Studio 2008 extensions for SharePoint (VSEWSS12.EXE) will not install on Vista 64-bit. It's 32-bit only. So when building a dev machine, it should be 32-bit for now at least.

Yes, just re run the wizard.

If you have Forefront running you can turn it off while running the wizard.

Its me again, I was able to install, however, for the last few hours, I have been unable to do anything, very similar to Margret above.  I looked at the SQL Logs, nothing that states I was denied permission.  I am able to view Central Admin, however, I cannot create a web application.  In fact, that option is not available for me in the application tab.  When i try look at the Farm Topology and click my server(my lap top name) I receive the authentication error.  I am really confused on why my permissions cannot authenticate, since I am the administrator.  Was an initial web application supposed to be created in I installed WSS?  It never was, the only thing I see is my Central Administration Application.  Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Kevin,

Do you launch IE with "run as administrator" ?

Is IE showing you that you are in the Intranet Zone when you are in CA? If not add the url to this Zone.

I assume you are running Vista Business or higher NOT any Home editions.

Thanks

I am not able to view Central Admin (on Visa Ultimate) since I receive an 'access denied' error or an 'HTTP Error 401.2 - Unauthorized' error -it depends on which authentication method is enabled.

I have checked that I am in the intranet zone.

However, in the IIS Admin Manager there are three available options for authentication -Anonymous/ASP.NET Impersonation/Forms Authentication- whichever I select I receive the same error message..

I am really confused on why my permissions cannot authenticate, since I am the administrator.

Thanks in advance

I have been reading all the posts and after all those initial hiccups I have finally managed to get WSS on my Vista 32-bit. I did even try the MOSS install, but even after completion of the install, I am not able to see the MOSS features like Form Server, Excel services, etc. And to add to the woes….I even don’t see any link to create and configure a SSP.

Any help!

Neeraj,

The reason you don't see the services is that you chose the "wrong" option when installing MOSS.

You need to select the "full" option which will install all services for you so you can select them when you are configuring services on the server.

Hi

I have tried all the steps, seen the video and followed each and every step but hours after trying out again and again WSS and MOSS 2007 trial is not being installed on my pc. I am getting an error of program compatability issue with sharepoint.exe. I have tried to put this program compatability warning off through following

So on the first place, putting off the program compatability warning wasn't a good idea. Just to reiterate.. I have followed the above links you had given Jonas for 32 Bit OfficeServer.exe.. No DVD used to install Moss and WSS. I am totally new and have to complete assignments for WSS and MOSS. Can you help me find a solution.

One of the issues I found was that SharePoint designer wouldn't properly open the WSS site.  To fix this I needed to run SharePoint Designer in administrator mode (mentioned previously).  Easiest way is to browse to the executable C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12 or C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12, locate SPDESIGN.exe.  Right click -> Properties -> Compatability Level -> Run As Administrator.  My OS is Vista Ultimate x64, and UAC is off.

I was away for a while doing some SilverLight 2.0 stuffs.

Per your comment, I looked back to see if I get any "FULL" option, but I donot see anything other than "Stand-alone" and "Web-Front-End".

I tried as per below:

#1. I tried the install again with "Stand-alone" option, it started with a "Repair/Remove" option.

#2. I selected "Repair",

#3. It then finally reached to end but complained about my SQL Server 2005 needed to be upgraded.

What do I do, because when I try to go to this url I don't find anything but it takes me to dowload home page.

"Access is denied. Check that the Default Content Access Account has access to this content, or add a crawl rule to crawl this content. (The item was deleted because it was either not found or the crawler was denied access to it.)"

My account does have access. I have also followed the instructions in this posts (and similar) with no success.

I'm running IIS 6 and checked the "Basic Authentication" but when I open the IIS Admin Program it's empty.  and when I try to acces http://localhost it's another blank page.

I'm obviously doing something wrong here, anyone know?

nitz,

Are you running XP 64 bit? I'm asking since you say you are running IIS6.

IIS6 on XP has a limit of running one web site at a time so you have to manually enable the web site you are accessing.

Still even when I run i.e. in an Admin lunched browser, it won't show me the Modify all Sites/Site collection link

How come this guy sees so many items in his Site Collection Features.  How did I miss so many?  All I see when I click on Site Collection Features is one single item and it says: Three-State Workflow.  It sounds like I don't have any themes?

In the customization post the author says you have to have site/collection admin rights.  I know I do have the highest rights.

What went wrong?

Hi Jonas,

I have Vista Ultimate 32 bit. I have installed WSS 3 successfully. But I could not install MOSS 2007. When I tried to install MOSS 2007, the installer asked me for a Product Key. I downloaded the the trial version from the site

www.microsoft.com/.../details.aspx

where there was not any product key provided.

It should not ask me for the key, right? Am I missing someting?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thank you for the great product.   I was able to install MOSS on Vista Home Premium without any problems.

I am, however, running into a problem when trying to integrate SSRS with sharepoint.  Acutally, the integration works after installing the addin, but I am not able to get the Report Builder to load (Right-click a report / Edit in Report Builder)

I understand that Home Premium doen't have security available other than Basic Authentication, and I have changed my rsreportserver.config to enable SSRS for basic authentication.  I also enable anonymous access.  Basically, I follow these instructions...

msdn.microsoft.com/.../cc281309.aspx

When i try to open report builder I get a I get a popup titled "Cannot Start Application" with a message "Cannot Retrieve Application.  Authentication Error".  Below is the details that are returned along with this error window.

Has anyone been able to get report builder to work on a ssrs integrated moss environment on vista home premium?  If so, any help you could provide is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Paul

Hi Jonas.

Having a couple of problems here. The install went fine but when I go into central admin there is no option to create a web app. When I go to create site collection I am unable to do so as there is no web application in the drop down to choose. If I go to email settings I get access denied even though my account (which WSS shows I am signed in as) has full control. I am local admin on this vista (standalone) machine.

I have some entries in the event logs:

The Windows SharePoint Services Search service terminated with the following

error:

The handle is invalid.

and also

DCOM got error "1053" attempting to start the service WSearch with arguments

As I wrote previously in the comments I've confirmed IIS *is* installed and installed in the manner THIS article specifies. Yet for some reason, 2 clicks into the WSS Configuration Wizard I get that error message claiming IIS isn' t installed.

The user running the wizard has to be logged in as a user with "unrestricted" access in SQL Server. And of course SQL server is installed locally. If it is on a different box you need a domain account.

skiabox,

1) Do you have SQL server installed on the same machine where you install SharePoint?

2) Make sure you have granted the user running the install enough rights in SQL server to create databases and manage security.

When you installed SQL Server 2008 you added SQL Server administrators. Run the WSS/MOSS install as one of those users.

Thanks

You can install on XP 64bit since the 64 bit version comes with II6. But IIS6 on XP64 will only run one website at a time so you have to manually switch between websites.

So I would not bother with this.

Hi,

i have successfully installed sharepoint services 2003  and MOss 2007 on Windows 7 64bit with your help. Thank you very much. The version that appears in central administration is 12.0.0.6421.

So far so good. But I get problems trying to update sharepoint with hotfixes.

After installing April and June cumulative updates the version remains the same . But it should be 12.0.0.6510.

I used bamboo installer with administrative rights. The only error that showed up in the command window was: CopyFile C:\Windows\system32\ServerManagerCmd.exe failed with: 80

After this, the dialog for repairing or removing sharepoint is displayed. I used repair.

I checked the version of file sysadm.exe and see that it always is 12.0.6421.1000.

This version number should change. I seems, that files are copied. Does anyone know, what to do? The repair action does not seem to update the files.

Thanks a lot in advance. And Merry Christmas to all

but for some reason, i need to uninstall & install it again.

This time, when i install it again, i got this warning when try to create the configuration:

Unable to connect to database server.

I have make sure the user has access to the SQL server,

do you know any other possibility that might have caused this issue?

Thanks for your help.

I just installed the SharePointOnVista on Windows Vista Ultimate 64-Bit with MSSQL 2008 and I'm receiving the following error when trying to get to the SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration

Error: HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable.

This is a fresh install of Vista, with nothing else configured but IIS 7 and SQL 2008.

Can anyone provide some help? I'm getting tried of developing in VM's.

Thanks,

Shawn

Pradip,

Do you have Office 2010 installed? If you do uninstall it and run the setup again. Then you can install office 2010

I was trying to install the WSS 3.0 in my Win 7 Enterprise (64 bit) PC. First I tried your article, 'Sharepoint on Win7'. I edited the Policy and enabled 'Turn off the application aompatibility engine'. Then tried to install the WSS. I was not getting the compatibility error message but I got a different message stating that I need Win 2K3 SP1 for the installation.

Then I tried your article for the Win Vsita. I reached till the point where the files are getting extracted. Then I got the error stating that setup must be run from within Server Manager.

Here is the exact message:"Setup is unable top proceed due to the follwoing error(s):Setup must be run from within Server Manager. Correct the issue(s)Listed above and run Setup"

Any help will be highly appreciated.

praviljithpv,

Make sure you download the latest and greatest install.

It looks like you are using an old version.

Jonas...

We have a licensed MSDN install DVD/ISO for MOSS 2007, and the installer helper is only installing WSS from that. I'd like to avoid installing the trial version to get MOSS. Any work arounds I'm missing? (Tried to slog through the messages above....eyes glazed over. :-)

After running WSS setup helper and adjusting my ISS settings I attempted to run the sharepoint x64 w/service pack 2.  I got an error saying I must install windows server 2003 first.  Did I do something wrong?

I had no trouble installing vs3 with sp1 using this tool on WIndows 7 using sql2008 also on this pc. The admin site comes of fine. I believe I have followed all instructions. I have turned on Basic Authentication for the admin site.  I have two accounts, sharepointmanager which is the local account id I defined in the installation (although I was running on my own domain account). This account had sql admin rights also has all the rights specified in the install. It is part of the machin admin group and has permissions to the inetput foders. I also have my own account which is a domain account that has ll the rights mentioned above.  Both account appear in the from mananagers group. I get Access Denied on both accounts when I try to create a new site.  I don't know what to look at next.

Error trying to programmatically upload document using WSS 3.0.

Successfully installed and configured WSS on Windows 7, running .Net Framework 2.0...

We have an scanning application that we are testing against WSS 3.0 - get an error upon releasing the document to SP. The app is able to connect to SP and read Doc Library settings, error occurs when sending documents to SP.

Suspect to do with Security settings - any ideas?

This works perfectly well using WSS 3.0 and Win Server 2003/2007...

thanks

Jim
