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?
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?
