I know we need Visual Studio 2005/2008 extensions for WSS 3.0/MOSS 2007.  If we upgrate to Visual Studio 2010, do we still need to install a Visual Stidio 2010 extenstion for MOSS 2007?  For MOSS2010?

Visual Studio 2010 will not open my MOSS 2007 Site


I am using VS 2010 premium, Win Server 2008 R2, MOSS 2007 and are all installed on the same machine.

First, I when I try to connect with the server explorer...I get A SharePoint server is not installed on this computer which is not true.

Second, When I try to open a website through > open website > local IIS and click on my sharepoint portal site I get.....Unable to open website, Visual Web Dveloper does not support opening sharepoint sites. Why am I getting this? I am not using Visual web Devloper. I am using VS 2010 premium.

Why is it so hard to open adn/or connect to our sharepoint sites with VS 2010? I have no problem at all using Sharepoint designer to connect but I want to use visual stuidio.  I hate the designer. I think microsoft dropped the ball on this one.    Anybody know of a good article/tutorial on this?

moving from Visual Studio 2005 to visual studio 2010. Will be on MOSS 2007 for next year at least.


Most of my web servers are 64 bit.

At this new shop I don't have any custom visual Studio 2005 compiled workflows or sharePoint solutions.  What I do have is a few DLLs we've deployed manually to the Web front ends in the 12 hive,  And a few low volume non-sharepoint websites I've deployed with the source - because I knew I'd be moving to 2010 very soon.

What's the risk of moving my development client to 2010? Can I have 2005 and 2010 on the same client? Does 2010 have an option for compiling to 2005 compatibility?

What happens if I compile those solutions (as is) in vs 2010 and deploy?  Does something special need to be installed in SharePoint or my web servers to support VS2010 compiled solutions?

BTW, how smooth is the 2005 to 2005 code coversion (if any) process. Can I open 2005 projects/solutions in 2010?

Can I use visual studio 2010 to build and deploy 2007 solutions?

Actually I have some 2007 code someone gave me.  I haven't used those external wsp builders for a long time.  I don't know if I can just use vs 2010.

ASP.NET 4 and Visual Studio 2010 Web Development Beta 2 Overview

Many exciting changes for ASP.NET are coming in the .NET Framework version 4. This document gives an overview of many of the new features that are included in the Beta 2 release of the .NET Framework 4 and of Visual Studio 2010.

Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2

This is a big deal. This isn't ".NET 3.6" - there are a lot of improvements of .NET 4, and it's not just "pile on a bunch of features so you get overwhelmed." I've been working with and talking to many of the teams involved and even though it's a cheesy thing to say, this is a really customer-focused release.

ASP 4 - Whirlwind Tour around .NET 4 (and Visual Studio 2010) Beta 1

There's a lot of stuff that's new and added in .NET 4, but not in that "overwhelming-I-need-to-relearn-everything" way. More in that, "oh, this is way easier/simpler now" way. Like, moving data around with ADO.NET DataServices is easy, binding with client templates is easy, there's F# if you need it, the "dynamic" keyword if you need it, Silverlight's already installed, oh, and the parallel stuff will freak you out, but in a good way.

Short Overview of SharePoint Features in Visual Studio 2010

As you probably know, Visual Studio 2010 was announced earlier this week and it contains a lot of cool features and project templates for SharePoint developers. Below is a short overview for some of the SharePoint development related features and project templates.

About Dynamic Data in Visual Studio 2010 / .NET 4



Does anybody here have any pointers to screencasts, demos, webcasts for the latest enhancements in Dynamic Data as listed in above link? I'm repeating them here for ready reference :


  • EnableDynamicData method which enables Dynamic Data features in existing ASP.NET applications and DataSource controls
  • A new QueryExtender control, contained in the sample projects to simplify common data filtering operations. It supports a rich ASP.NET declarative query syntax that makes it easy to do things like search data for text or have filters based on ranges
  • A new Dynamic Data filter model that enables the developers to apply templates to pages just like field templates (including user defined filters)
  • New field templates of Email, URL and Enum columns
  • Support for inheritance in Entity Framework and Linq to SQL
  • Support for many to many relationships in Entity Framework
  • New Entity Templates which allow fine control over how an object is displayed and edited
  • DynamicHyperLink control for building links to tables and actions
  • Declarative support for D
