SharePoint 2010 Trial Download

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hello,   I am trying to install a trial of SharePoint 2010 and have been unable to do so.  It is asking for a product key.  I have looked through all of the information prior to the download and have been unable to find any reference to the product key.  Does anyone have any idea where I need to look or what I need to do to get this product key? Thank you in advance for your help. Chris

Cannot Restore Backup from Sharepoint Server 2007 to Sharepoint Server 2010 Trial Version

After installing the trial version of Sharepointn 2010 I wanted to restore my Sharepoint 2007 sites to it but received the following error:  "The site collection could not be restored. If this problem persists, please make sure the content databases are available and have sufficient free space." I went on to create a new content database in sharepoint 2010 but it still did not work. The old database i.e the one used by the sharepoint 2007 server is SQL 2005. During the installation of the sharepoint 2010 version I selected SQl Server Express for the database. Is there any specifics for migrating from MOSS 2007 to sharepoint 2010? Thanks for helping

Word 2010 Crashes When Trying to Open/Download File From SharePoint 2010 Using IE8



I'm trying to find a solution to an issue I'm having with Word 2010/SharePoint 2010/ and IE 8 working (or rather not working) together.

I'm using Windows XP, and I have recently upgraded from Office 2007 to Office Pro 2010, in doing so, I can no longer open Word 2010 .doc or .docx files via our SharePoint site using IE8.  I can however, open these files without a problem using Chrome and Safari.  I would prefer to use IE8, as it provides better functionality in other areas for SP.

I have tried the following:

  • Unistall/Re-install of SharePoint Designer, IE8 and Office Pro 2010.
  • Ran the repair and config on Office 2010
  • Reset the IE security settings.
  • Unchecked the "automatically detect settings" box under the LAN connections.
  • Added our SP site to Trusted Sites
  • Disabled each view under Protected View in Word Options Trust Center.
  • Checked the Save settings under Word Options Save.

 - all steps either together or separate to no avail!

For a bit more detail - here's the error I'm receiving:
"Microsoft Word has encounted a problem and needs to close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience."

How to reinstall trial version of Sharepoint Server 2010 on the same server



I installed Sharepoint 2010 on my Virtual Box VM. I was having some problems accessing the configuration database and hence the central administration website. I couldn't figure out what was the problem, so I decided to uninstall and then reinstall the trial version of SP 2010. But now it's not letting me do that as it says I cannot install the trial version on the same server. Its been only 2 weeks since I installed the SP 2010 trial version, how do I skip this. Please help
