Cannot open Sharepoint Designer 2010. Side by side configuration is incorrect.

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

This happens only on my desktop and laptop. When I try to open any site using "edit with sharepoint designer", I get the following message.

"c:\program files\Microsoft office\office 14\spdesign.exe

The application has failed to start becuase its side by side configuration is incorrect."

The site I am trying to open is a SPS 2010 site. Even if I try to open the application without trying to open the site, I get the same message. I have reinstalled Office 2010 and SPD 2010 but with no luck. Any advise.

Client side validation using Client OM in sharepoint 2010

Hi, Can we use Client Object Model for Client side validation? Suppose, i have a SharePoint 2010 List. While adding a new item in that list, i want to check for Title is already available or not, person has posted any item earlier or not..that kind of stuff. Could i check this at client side rather than ItemAdding Event, so that i can reduce the network traffic? Thanks in advanced. Hardik Shah Solution Developer.

How can I split one Sharepoint 2010 List into two Sharepoint 2010 Lists which are displayed side-by-


I have a list (table) with 50 items which is in a webpart zone of a Sharepoint 2010 page. Unfortunately, users have to scroll down the page to see the last items in the list. Therefore I would like to break the list in two and display both lists (each with 25 items) side by side in the same webpart zone. How can I do this? 

The only thing I can think of is to add a new webpart zone next to the other one, put a copy of my 50 items list in it, and apply filters to the lists so that the left one displays items 1-25 and the right one displays items 26-50. Unfortunately, I will have to change my filters once in a while.

SharePoint 2010 - missing server side dependencies and missing web parts


I did a clean SP 2010 install recently on a new server farm.  I got a health analyzer warning about missing server side dependencies - a lot of them - and missing web parts ... then I installed the August cumulative upgrade and got a clean configuration but an erro log with, again, a list of theoretically missing web parts.  I don't see any issue with features or functions but-- even after reading the posts- am unable to figure out (1) whether this is important or (2) how to fix it -- please note that my test server shows none of these issues - the only difference between test and prod is that test is completely vanilla and production uses a named instance of SQL Server ... Thanks so much for any advise ... Pete
