By the way, if you are interested to know how we did it read this post.
That's a great post since Windows 7 RC has just been released few days ago. I just want to share some my experience that if your computer is currently joined to domain network, you will still got the compatible message when trying to install the MOSS 2007.
My suggestions is when you logged on with domain user, the domain policy will override the local machine policy, so that you wil still get that error event if you turned off the Compatible Assistant in local group policy.
In my case, i switched my server back to Workgroup environment first and then follow Jonas guide as below. It should works. After that i re-join my server to domain environment again.
Hope this help.
A quick note: instead of "policy", you might have to invoke "gpedit.msc" instead - at least this was the case on my Windows 7 (not inside any group).
I was able to make it work! Thanks.
Hi man, great post... but i still have a problem... the set up ask me SP1 of Windows Server 2003, but the first error that you show in your post has gone, can you give me a hand???
Thank you very much.
Do you follow the steps in install WSS 3.0 / MOSS on Vista?
you must download WssOnVista and follow the steps in that post.
I made this work - almost! The installation went fine (on Win7 Ultimate 64 bit), but when I try to create a SSP, I am told that I am not a member of the Administrators Group - which I am. What am I doing wrong?
Make sure to launch IE with "run as administrator"
Installing Windows SharePoint Services on Windows 7
I did the setup according to the way its described in Bamboo (WSS 3 on Vista). The installtion was done successfully. But the problem I went to the Web Applikcation in central administration all I have is
SharePoint - 80 http://saxons-pc/
SharePoint Central Administration v3 http://saxons-pc:36213/
when I goto SharePoint - 80 it gives me this error instead of a sharepoint page
HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found
The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

You need to create a new site collection.
Thanks a lot for this article as I got the WSS 3.0 running in Windows 7(Ultimate) IIS 7.5. I can successfully see the central administration and create new web application but when I browse to the webapplication the page displays :HTTP:OK then the date and The message "Connection Close". I have basic authentication enabled
I was able to install wss 3.0 on Windows 7 following the instruction. I user advance and create new farm. The basic did not work. I have a blank administration site and if I browse I get a blank page, and no sharepoint site at all. Did I miss a step? Please help me and thanks in advance..
I already see that error. The blank page is because in Windows 7 the IIS Basic Authentication isn't it enable by default. You need to install that using Windows Turn On feature and after that enable Basic Authentication at IIS.
You can find a post about that in my blog guilhermeferreira.wordpress.com/.../wss-on-windows-vistawindows-7-central-administration-blank-page
has been write in portuguese but I hope that can be useful for you.
OK, this is great to have wss in Windows 7 (I did it successfully for Vista, then upgraded to W7 and did it again successfully).
But I wish I could share SharePoint with my home network (other family members) who are currently using Vista Business.
Any idea what I need to do, if possible at all?
Thanks in advance.
If you want to be the server for the other computers in your network you just need to open your firewall in the SharePoint Port.
If you have a domain is easy to work, otherwise authentication is more difficult.
followed the instructions and installed everything no prob. However, the people picker (during creation of a site collection) fails to identify any domain users even though I am actually connected (logged in) to the site as one.
I looked around and it turns out I had to use the stsadm peoplepicker-searchadforests property to get this working.
Anyone else seen this? Could it be an installation issue?
In the Vista installation I didn't need to do anything to get this immediately working. I am assuming it has something to do with the application pool account. The account the pool is working with is NETWORK SERVICE.
Open Central Adminstration and go to
Central Administration > Application Management > Authentication Providers > Edit Authentication
IIS Authentication Settings is using Integrated Windows authentication - NTLM??
Did you find any error at Event viewr or SharePoint log?
c:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\12\LOGS
I am unable to install wssv3sp2-kb953338-x86-fullfile-en-us also wssv3sp1-kb936988-x86-fullfile-en-us-SP1 on windows 7 RC 7100.
When i run wss-setup with SetupLauncher i got following error.
"There are no product affected by package installed on this system".
One more thing, I have then tried with WSS-3.0 without any SP's, then after extracting succesful, It shows following error.
"Set-up is unable to proceed.Setup must be run from within server manager"
Please help what can be the issue?
Thank you for the reply. Sorry for my ignorance but I don't know what "open the firewall in the SharePoint port" means.
Can you be a bit more specific please. ;)
Imagin that you install your WSS and your URL is http://site:81
This means that 81 is SharePoint PORT.
Your windows firewall maybe is blocking requests to that Port.
If you doesn't have any specific Firewall, you just need to open Control Panel and find Windows Firewall Options to unlock Port 81.
Hi Jonas / Guilherme,
I need to know, what could be the problem if "Services on Server" and "Create a new Web Application" is missing in Central Admin, after installing MOSS 2007 either with SP1 or SP2 in Windows 7? When I tried to access mysp/.../server.aspx (Services on Server) manually from the browser, it says that "Access Denied". My Windows 7 is joined over a network with other domain, and tried to install MOSS2007 using local administrators user after log in to the computer using local administrators user.
My friend told me, he tried to install MOSS 2007 over Windows 7, using local administrators user. And no problems at all. Services on server not missing, and all shown perfectly. But, after he tried to access and log in as domain user in his computer, then he tried back to log in as local administrators user, Services on Server and Create a new Web Application won't shown.
Please help us. We need to solve this, coz I personally will plan to move to 7, my friend need it coz he is already using 7 on his platform, and I do not like errors like this. My computer using Vista and MOSS 2007, and works perfectly (thanx to BambooSolutions).
As always did you do the following:
1) Launch ie with "run as administrator
2) Make sure your central admin pages shows up as "intranet zone"
Hi, I am a sharepoint novice and I have completed the install of WSS 3.0 SP2 on my windows 7 laptop. All seemed to be going well until I tried to creat a site collection via application management.
When using the change web application option I am presented with a select application screen and a message - "There are no items to show in this view"
Could you help? This is a roadblock for me at the moment.
I am getting the error.
"This product requires Windows Server SP1. Install this service pack and re-run setup."
I am running Windiows 7 64-bit, is there a registry hack that might overcome this?
I have successfully installed SharePoint Server 2007 into Windows 7 32bit to use as an experimental single server.
What I miss here are all the initial server configuration steps required before I start creating sites and libraries, etc.
For example, I tried to create a new SSP (there was none), but had an error:
"You do not have the correct permissions to perform this task. You must be a member of the local administrators group. For more information, contact your system administrator."
I am the administrator of this machine. I also allowed SharePoint through the firewall. What is it that is (or are) missing?
This is only one thing. It seems to me that there are a number of steps that one needs to go through initially. I could not find help anywhere on the internet. :(
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I m still getting the same error even i turn of the Application Compatibility setting.
I am trying to install Moss 2007 on my Windows 7 32 Bin Ultimate edition.

Many of us use VPC for AX demo and exploration because it has all the required components already in
Minor note, FYI, when you go to edit the policy do not type just "policy" but rather type "group policy", at least that helped me and maybe you too. HTH. - Mark Kamoski
I've already installed WSS 3.0 succesfully, now I'm trying to launch the setup for MOSS SP2.0 the same way but I am gettting a dialog box to pop asking to enter command line arguments like /config. I've tried launching the setuplancher.exe through the command line specifying /config <path to config.xml> but same thing. Any ideas?
I have installed wss whit succes but when i created a farm and want to connect i get the follwing error
HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable.
Hi, it didn't work for me. Using Windows 7 Pro, with IIS 7.5 and SQL Server 2008 R2 installed and running. Says I must have Windows Server 2003 SP1 installed. Note I am using the Sharepoint 2007 Trial Version download from Microsoft. Has anyone had success with this recently? Does anyone have any ideas for me? Obviously. this is a critical; issue for me. (yes, I rebooted after changing the policy, just in case)
I installed wss successfully in English. Is it possible to get another language (German)?
