Posted By:      Posted Date: October 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I am trying to install MOSS 2007 SP1 on wingows server 2008. After the licence agreement I am being redirected to a window where I can select "Server Type" skipping the window where we can select Installation type(Basic or Advanced).

And "Complete" and "WebFrontEnd" options are diabled and "Standalone" option is only enabled on the "Server Type"  window.


Please help me regarding this.

Error installing SQL Server 2008 R2 on a Windows 7 Ultimate 32 machine

HI all, I'm installing the Developer edition of MS SQL Server 2008 R2 (downloaded today) on a Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit virtual machine (using VMWare Workstation 6.5).  Yesterday I had tried MS SQL Server 2008 R0 with the same results.  Both give an error about 30% into the installation process: "An error occurred during the installation of assembly 'VSLangProj80,Version="",PublicKeyToken="b03f5f7f11d50a3a",Culture="neutral",FileVersion="8.0.50727.1826"' When I click the OK button, the install rolls that last bit back and then continues.  Unfortunatly I didn't take a screenshot of the main install window, just the error window. Any ideas what this error means?  The install yesterday seemed to work, but I'm not through the R2 install yet.  The R0 install also failed to install the documentation for some reason (I left it running during the night) Note that I have VS2010 (original release plus downloaded updates) installed and then just some small stuff like Snagit and Skype on this VM.  I updated Windows 7 completely before I started installing R2 so it is completely up to date as of midnight!

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

Installing SQL Server 2008 on windows 7 x86

I recently installed windows 7 on my laptop and now I am trying to install SQL Server 2008, but It tells me "Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 installation has failed. SQL Server 2008 Setup requires .NET Framework 3.5 SP1  to be installed." But windows 7 already comes with the .NET Framework 3.5 component, I have this feature turned on, I have even tried downloading the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 to install myself but that wouldn't work also. I really need help with this.

Problem Installing SQL Server 2008 on Windows Server 2008 R2

I have a fresh install of Server 2008 R2.  I am attempting to install SQL Server 2008 (x64).  Both products downloaded in the last couple of days via MAPS.

On my first attempt at a SQL installation, a dialog box pops up warning of "compatibility issues".  I searched for a solution, and it was suggested to install SQL 2008 SP1, before re-running the main SQL setup, and then to apply SP1 again after SQL Server is installed.

So, I have installed SQL 2008 SP1 with no problems.  When I then ran the main SQL setup, it tells me that I need to install .NET 3.5.  So, I do this from Server Manager -> Add Features (.NET Features 3.5.1).  That installs fine.  I then re-run SQL setup, and it tells me that I need to apply .NET 3.5 SP1.

I then downloaded .NET 3.5 SP1 and when I try to apply it, it tells me that I must use the "Role Management Tool" to install .NET 3.5 SP1.

This is where my problem lies.  Is .NET 3.5.1 (as previously installed using the Role Manager) not the same as .NET 3.5 SP1?  If so, then why does the SQL Server installer tell me that I need to install it, when it is already installed?

I am well and truly stuck at this point.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The problem I am posting here is that I was facing nearly 2 weeks around. Any body comes with this stuff please help.

Word Automation in sample ASP.NET(C#) application.

I am using Microsoft.Office.Inetrop.Word Assembly for automation. Here I am reading a XXX.dot template file and fill the contents with dynamic data.

When i am executing my code in localhost:someportnumber the automation is working fine and I could get expected result and when I am hosting in my inetmgr(Windows XP is my OS) it is also working fine.

But the problem is that when I am hosting in my production server(Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition) I am not able to perform automation and results in the following error.

Data: System.Collections.ListDictionaryInternal
Message: Word has encountered a problem.
Source: Microsoft Word

The code gets failed in the following line:

ApplicationClass wordApp = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.ApplicationClass();

Document wordDoc = wordApp.Documents.Add(ref oTemplate, ref oFalse, ref oMissing, ref oMissing); // Error in this line

I cannot able to proceed further. Can anybody please help me in solving this issue?

Thank you.
