Microsoft Project 2010 synchronize with SharePoint Foundation error (invalid characters)

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have been unable to synchronize my MS Project with a SharePoint Foundation tasks list. Each time I try I get the following message:

"Unable to synchronize the project with the SharePoint tasks list because the list name contains invalid characters. Modify the list name and synchronize again. Valid list names cannot contain any of the following characters: !.[]'"

I click OK and the process stops. It creates the Task list in SharePoint but does no more.

The SharePoint task list name is not the issue. I've tried a few (Project Tasks, tasks etc). It's not the Task Name in Project either. I'm using a test project file with only two tasks called "Startup" and "planning".

Any ideas?

Using Freeware SharePoint Foundation 2010 with BLOB extender for large scale deployment project.

Hi Everyone, If I'd like to deploy SharePoint 2010 Foundation with Express DB (no SQL Server) what's the limitation ? and suppose i have implemented BLOB extender from freeware 3rd partyhttp://www.avepoint.com/sharepoint-storage-extender-docave/ does that means i can deploy more than 4 GB of data and it should perform faster since the SQL Express is not loaded with BLOB (document binaries). Can anyone clarify this matter please ? Thanks. /* Infrastructure Support Engineer */

Trying to repair SharePoint 2010, running into an error with Microsoft.Office.InfoPath in GAC...

We've got an environment which has been hit badly by something we're not yet sure of. SharePoint has ceased working completely, and when I try to run SharePoint Configuration Wizard, it stops with an error concerning an windows assembly. Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server', VErsion=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c' or one of its dependencies. Signature specified is zero-sized. (Exception from HRESULT:0x80131237) How can I fix that assembly?

After Installing SharePoint Foundation 2010, trying to open site gives 404 error in browser


I had this as reply on a thread about migrating from WSS 3.0 to SFS 2010. But I have completed all the steps with the modified documentation, but the browser delivers an error 404 when I try to open the site I created.  Same thing happens if I go at it via https, but first I get a certificate warning error (using the IP instead of the FQDN) and then being prompted for credentials.

I am completely stumped at what else to look at.  Any help in gathering information to get help is also appreciated.

Environment:  SBS 2008, SFS 2010, SQL Express 2008.  Rest of the IIS sites continue to function normally and I can get to the management site ok.  Although after the install, I had to go into application pool and change the service account from the domain admin (it defaulted to that) to networkservice account, otherwise I got a 503.  Same thing happened on the site I created until I changed the service account.  Now just a 404.

I am encountering this error during setup. The server previously had WSS 3.0 and the Group Board Workspace. I uninstalled those and installed sharepoint foundation 2010. Initially It was up and running but I was receiving errors trying to load the group space template, so I uninstalled SPF2010. cleaned up the registry pointers to the old WSS3.0 and Groupboard Workspace and tried to reinstall. Now I get the error

Microsoft SharePoint server 2010 encountered an error during setup. One or more required office components failed to complete successfully.

Looking into the issue it appears that setup cannot install the embedded sql server, since the logs indicate a dbwrap error. There are no "pendingfilerename" operations which fixed this problem for some. I tried to install as a farm but it won't allow me to use a local admin account.  I also looked at the sql configurations and the windows internal database is running.

Any ideas how to I can remove the windows internal database and reinstall SF2010?

Your backup is from a different version of Microsoft SharePoint Foundation -- Sharepoint 2010


I made a backup of SharePoint farm from 2010 and tried to restore on a dev server and kept getting this error.  I looked at the versions of SharePoint on both servers, and they were identical:  14.0.4763.1000

I'm posting this although it is not a question, but a statement that might help someone else.  It took a while to notice that there had been an upgrade on the original server that the new dev box did not yet have... not an SP, but more like a hotfix type upgrade.

In Central Admin, go to "Upgrade and Migration".  Click on "Check product and patch installation status".  Scroll down the page of results and see if there are any links to updates that have been installed on the original server that are not on the new server, or vice-versa.  I did find a link on my original server.  Clicking on it opened the update page, so I copied the URL, went to my dev server, opened that page and installed the update, and voila!

An error has occured in sharepoint 2010 foundation



I'm having problems with installing SharePoint foundation 2010. Istallation finishes without any errors and the configuration wizard just as well. But when I the try to open the following url (http://server:port/_admin/adminconfigintro.aspx?scenarioid=adminconfig&welcomestringid=farmconfigurationwizard_welcome) a blank page with the text an error has occurred. Also, after turning customerrors off and httperrors to custom, I get a 500 error when accessing the central administration.

Because of some research I have done I found out that turning the pipeline mode to classic instead of integrated fixes that issue. But if I do that I cannot access any page anymore (e.g. the /default.aspx). I get a 404 - not found.

Any help is very much appreciated.

Error installing SharePoint Server 2010 Prerequisites - Namely Windows Identity Foundation


Good day to all

i am trying to install Sharepoint server 2010 on my server, i have a windows server 2008 sbs sp2 pc. i have manually downloaded the Prerequisites and installed all except the windows identity foundation which just hangs. i have downloaded the file from the windows site namely: Windows6.0-KB974405-x64.msu, please can someone assist me in this matter i am at a lost.

Does anyone have suggestions for using Sharepoint 2010 to implement Microsoft Project 2010 Plans?


I'm looking for ways to manage resources on a project plan (mpp files) that are created in Project 2010 and publish that through Sharepoint 2010.

I want the "link to outlook" interface to work

I want to be able to assign tasks and have them be modified by the owner (linked to active directory)

I want task owners to be able to update their own tasks and create new ones.

I want all users to be "alerted" when tasks are created/modified (force the subscription to their own tasks)

Seems like it should be easy, but it aint.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

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
