VS 2008, in addition to VSeWSS, has to be installed to the WSS3.0/MOSS2007 web server?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
We just started to develop SharePoint Intranet by using WSS 3.0.  To get a first hand experience in developing SharePoint Web Parts in VS 2008, I plan to install VSeWSS to the web server where we installed WSS3.0, and MOSS2007 in the future. Do I still need to install VS 2008 to this web server, or I can develop SharePoint web parts from my workstation where VS 2008 was already installed?

Rebooting one Instance on a SQL 2008 Server with multiple instances installed

Hello, Hoping someone can answer the following questions ... If I have SQL Server 2008 with multiple Named Instances configured on it, can I reboot one Named Instance without rebooting any of the other Named Instances, or without having to reboot the entire server ?

Getting Sql Server Management Studio 2008 installed on local computer

Hello, I have been trying to figure out this problem for a while now so hopefully someone can help me out - I would really appreciate it! Right now I have SQl Server Management Studio2005 installed on my computer for a SQL sever that we have. We recently got a 2008 sql server and if I remotely access the server, I can see that SQL Management Studio 2008 has been isntalled on the new server. I need to build new databases but need SQL Management Studio 2008 on my computer and I have no idea how to get it. I have a "Microsoft SQl Server 2008 R2" folder on my computer, and I have already tried clicking on "Configuration Tools" and then "SQL Server Installation center" and it isntalls a bunch of things, but none of them are "SQL Server Management Studio 2008."  I also found a link on a Microsoft website that says it's SQL Server Management studio 2008 R2 but it was just the same bunch of programs I already downloaded. How do I install Sql Server Managment Studio 2008 on my computer?! Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Silent install of SQL Server 2005 fails when SQL Server 2008 is installed


We currently install SQL Server 2005 Express silently during our installation, using the following switches


We also attach a 2005-created database immediately after using the following command line (^ is a path concat operator in Installshield):

sqlcmd.exe -S .\\SQLEXPRESS -E -i \"" + svConfigPath ^ "SetupUapDB.sql\" -vmdfpath=\"" + svConfigPath ^ "UapCfg.mdf\" -vldfpath=\"" + svConfigPath ^ "UapCfg_log.ldf\" -o \"" + svConfigPath ^ "SqlCreateDB.txt\" -e

Note that we do not specify an instance name.  We ran into a situation where someone had installed SQL Server 2008 on a box using a default instance name and our install then failed.  I am considering 2 possible fixes, and have questions for both.

Fix #1: Specify an instance name.  Ideally this would install SQL Server 2005 Express side by side with SQL Server 2008, create a unique instance name and we'd be good to go right?  If yes, what is the accepted convention for specifying instance names?

Fix #2: Not sure if this is possible.  Can we detect if SQL Server 2008 is on the box, and if yes, apply our 2005 database to it instead?  In this case (tell me

MOSS2007 (64Bit), Windows Server 2008 (64Bit) & Crystal Reports 2008


Hi guys,

at the moment i stuck at the following problem:
I try to call a Crystal Report (designed with Crystal Reports 2008 SP3) from my SharePoint aspx-page. In my 32-Bit Development-Eviroment everything works fine, but now i'm trying to deploy the solution to a MOSS207 64-Bit enviroment (Windows Server 2008 64Bit, IIS7, MOSS 64Bit).

When i try to call the report i get the following error message:
Exception Details: CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.LoadSaveReportException: An error has occurred while attempting to load the Crystal Reports runtime. Either the Crystal Reports registry key permissions are insufficient, or the Crystal Reports runtime is not installed correctly. Please install the appropriate Crystal Reports redistributable (CRRedist*.msi) containing the correct version of the Crystal Reports runtime (x86, x64, or Itanium) required. Please go to http://www.businessobjects.com/support for more information.

I've asked SAP for a solution of this problem and got back two possible ways to solve this problem:
1. Compile the application in 32-Bit mode -> this does not work with SharePoint (Error: Can't find assambly)
2. Run the Web Application in 32-Bit mode -> this does nit work with SharePoint (In

Cannot connect to SQL Server 2008 R2 installed on Win Server 2008 R2 in domain controlled by Win SBS


I have 2 SQL Server 2008 R2 instances installed on a new server running Win Server 2008 R2 in a Windows SBS 2008 domain.

The instances are configured to allow remote connection. The users are authorized in the SQL root security. The users are authorized for the computer and both SQL instances. Shared folders on the computer are visible remotely.

When I attempt to connect to either instance either programmatically, or using SQL Server Management Studio, the attempt fails with a Server not found ... error. I cannot see either instance.

I opened port 1434 in the firewall but that only made things worse.

I have not experienced this error before in SQL Servers 2000 or 2005.

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

How to identify if the SQL Server 2008 R2 version installed is 32 bit or 64 bit


How do I identify if the SQL Server 2008 R2 version that is installed is 32 bit or 64 bit. I see that the are some files in Program Files directory and some others in Program Files(x86) directory on an Windows Server 2008 R2 OS.  

I installed SQL Server 2008 Express 64-bit, but I can't install SQL Server 2008 Management Studio E

I installed SQL Server 2008 Express 64-bit Runtime succesfully on my Windows Server 2008 Enterprise SP2 64-bit. However when I start the setup to install SQL Server 2008 Management Studio Express (SSMSE) 64-bit Edition, I get the following error message:

SQLManagementStudio_x64_ENU.exe is not a valid Win32 application. OK.

Conclusion: I can't install this Management Tool for SQL Express server. I don't understand the error message. All is 64-bit. Does the message mean that I have to install the 32-bit version? Why? That doesn't make sense, as everything is running in 64-bit.

Any resolution to this issue?

installing SQL Server 2008 R2 Express on a PC that has MSDE installed


Hi - My PC has MSDE installed on it and I'd like to install Express to take advantage of some new functionality in Express.  The PC runs Windows XP Home Edition.  Here are my questions:

1. Is it possible to have both MSDE & Express on one PC without causing problems?

2. How do I move databases from MSDE over to Express?

3. How will my query editor (Toad) know which SQL Server version to point to?

4. When setting up ODBCs will the two different SQL Servers appear there?

I have a hunch that this is a fairly basic thing so if there are any useful threads or websites on this topic that anyone knows about, please do post the links.  Of course, any answers to the specific questions listed above would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, knot

Seven reasons to care about SQL Server 2008 R2

Microsoft begins to fully realize its vision of SQL Server as an information platform and not "just" a database. Hence the main theme for this release -- at least according to Microsoft -- is self-service BI. The PowerPivot plug-ins for Excel 2010 and SharePoint 2010 are easily going to make the biggest splash of all the new features, not least because they're the most complete. But then, SQL Server 2008 R2 isn't strictly necessary for PowerPivot for Excel, which works with plenty of other data sources.

sql server 2008 adventureworks database


dear Friends

For my MCTS 70 -433 examination, I recently installed sql server 2008 and installed the sample databases too. but my issue is, in that book they have mentioned a database called "AdventureWorks2008" and the nice thing is I don't have a such a database with me in my sql server 2008. 

And the query is 

-- MERGE Statement
USE AdventureWorks2008
MERGE INTO	Sales.SalesOrderDetailHistory AS SODH
USING Sales.SalesOrderDetail AS SOD
ON SODH.SalesOrderID = SOD.SalesOrderID
AND SODH.SalesOrderDetailID = SOD.SalesOrderDetailID
INSERT (LineTotal, SalesOrderID, SalesOrderDetailID, CarrierTrackingNumber, OrderQty
, ProductID, SpecialOfferID, UnitPrice, UnitPriceDiscount
, rowguid, ModifiedDate, Cancelled)
VALUES(LineTotal, SalesOrderID, SalesOrderDetailID, CarrierTrackingNumber, OrderQty
, ProductID, SpecialOfferID, UnitPrice, UnitPriceDiscount
, rowguid, ModifiedDate, DEFAULT)
UPDATE SET SOHD.Cancelled = 'True'
OUTPUT $action , inserted.* ;	

Please help me to overcome this issue and let me know where can I download that database too.

Thanking you

happy Coding
