How to upgrade from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2010 after mistanely de


I need a detailed instruction on how to upgrade From Upgrading from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0  (SBS 2003 ) to SharePoint Foundation 2010.

Background of the case:

I have all my databases (STS-database and STS_Config) saved but, I forgot to save my Virtual Site )Companyweb site) and I mistakenly re-installed IIS on the SBS 2003, hence  I lost the companyweb site. Is this an issue to migrate to Sharepoint foundation 2010. The Sharepoint foundation 2010 is running on a Microsoft HyperV Server 2008 R2
Also, I have created a Virtual 2003 SRV ENT with Sharepoint Services 3.0 running on it. I also have attached my Databases STS_Database and STS_Config)... how do I get it working like a regular website. I have modified the CNAME record to reflect the new server... http://companyweb - it take me to the new site but it loads a blank page. I did create a new CompanyWeb Virtual site on the VHD 2003 server.
Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your prompt response. Nelson

Windows 7 Sharepoint 2010 Foundation

Hello again, we installed Sharepoint 2010 Foundation on a Windows 7 Professional OS 8GB 4Core machine and when we try to use a trial Version of Visual Studio 2010 we are getting "A 32 bit version of version of Windows Sharepoint Services is required by this project but is not installed on this system. Please install Windows Sharepoint Services 3.0, please download from MS or as part of MS Sharepoint Server 2007" I'm wondering if anyone might know if there is a key step we forgot to do or if this might be a Visual Studio 2010 setting per chance? Thanks very much again BobK

Windows Sharepoint Foundation 2010 - Document Library Settings with Reporting Services 2008 R2 in in

I have a client who has recently upgraded their SharePoint system to Windows Sharepoint Foundation 2010 with Reporting Services 2008 R2 in integrated mode. I have configured reporting services and am able to deploy reports to SharePoint. The client created a document library before the upgrade to WSF 2010. I need to add Report Builder 3.0 to the New Document menu and found the following article. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb326289.aspx "Allow management of content types?" is set to yes under the advanced document library settings. The problem is that when I try to "add from existing site content types" the reporting services content types are not in the list. I appreciate any help you can give me.

Sharepoint Foundation 2010 Workflow Start Options


I have Sharepoint Foundation 2010 installed and Sharepoint Designer. When I create a Site workflow there are 2 Start Options grayed out, 1) Start this workflow to approve publishing a major version of an item. 2) Start this workflow when an item is changed.

Is there an onther setting to prior to creating the workflow to turn these option on or are these 2 options not available in Sharepoint Foundation 2010?


Sharepoint 2010 : Infopath rules and filters vs SharePoint workflows



I need to perform a lookup of a user creating a list item and fill out some of his properties automatically.  (such as company, departement, etc.)

I can imagine there are two ways to go ahead with this.   You can create Infopath filters or/and rules to lookup information.   I don't know whether it is possible to lookup information from Active Directory with this as well?   I do know it's possible to lookup information from another list.   I could of course use BCS to create a list within SharePoint and then use that.   Somehow that doesn't feel like the proper solution.

I can also use workflows that would start automatically and go ahead an retrieve user information in such a way.  I don't know whether this is the best option either.

Any advice / feedback would be much appreciated.

Best regards, David

why SharePoint Foundation 2010 should not be used for production environments in Windows 7?


Hello everyone.

I have installed successfully SharePoint Foundation 2010 on my Windows 7 computer, and it works perfectly. I have read the installation notes in Microsoft website and they advice about using this kind of configuration is not properly for production environments, but the question is, WHY? if it is working perfectly? should I buy a Windows Server 2008 and an expensive hardware to deploy into my small company?

Thanks in advance :)
