Disable SharePoint Workspace alert on Windows 7 PC with Norton Firewall Provider.

  
My wife has a laptop with Windows 7 and Office 2010.  Recently she was playing with some settings on her PC and did something which now causes a "Microsoft SharePoint Workspace" alert to appear when she boots up the machine. She wants this message to go away.  I do not know how to do this, and searching for portions of the alert have lead nowhere.  Here is the exact message. SharePoint Workspace is unable to communicate through your firewall and will run with limited functionality.  To resolve this problem, enable SharePoint workspace as a Windows Firewall exception.  For assistance, contact your Windows administrator. To remedy this, here is what I attempted: Start > Control Panel > View by Small Icons > Windows Firewall This opens a dialog with the caption, "Help protect your computer with Windows Firewall".  Below that, there is an orange box with the notification, "These settings are being managed by vendor application NORTON FIREWALL PROVIDER." Of the half-dozen options that appear in the left navigation panel of that dialog, only 3 are enabled: control panel home, advanced settings, and troubleshoot my network.  The option to "Turn windows firewall on or off" is disabled. We have Norton 360, so I opened that program and chose the "Settings" tab, which displays a Firewall link to

.NET Sockets and the firewall.

  
I've written a fairly simple tool that opens a socket and waits for requests. Nothing fancy. When I build and run as a tool, my system pops up a dialog needing admin approval. Give it such and the apps runs along handling requests from the network. Great. When I build it as a service it isn't receiving requests. As a test I turned off the firewall. With the firewall off, it's working fine as a service. So the firewall is blocking my service. My question is, what do I need to do when building as a service that allows the port to be open? I've dug through .NET and don't see support for this. What little I've found Googling has all been fairly old (like 5+ years).  Anyone know the right solution?  

WCF communication blocked by firewall (or something)

  
So here's the deal... I have a web application with WCF services hosted in the web while the client is a WinForm app. Even though the web app listens on both port 80 and 443, some clients (PC clients) can't reach the services getting a TimeoutException.  In some cases I figured out the was a local antivirus (i guess with a firewall) called Nod32 wich was blocking the communication, I had to add my client "as a browser" and it sterted to work just fine. But in some other clients there are firewall preventing the communication. So, I have two questions. 1) Is there anything I can do in my client app to give the user better info about the problem? (The timeoutException does not say anything really). and... 2) What should I tell a Network Administrator that needs to be 'open' for the client to connect?   Let me know if anybody needs further info about config to answer these questions.   regards, Seba    http://sgomez.blogspot.com

Do SharePoint 2007 and VS2010 have to be installed to the same Windows Server machine?

  
For WSS 3.0 development using VS 2005, I learned that we need to install VSeWSS to the Windows Server where the WSS 3.0 was installed.  For MOSS 2007 development using VS 2010, do we need to have VS 2010  nstalled to the same Windows Server?  Thanks, Jeffrey

I installed .net FrameWork 4.0 (for Vista/Windows 7) and my Desktop Font is BOLD! (sometimes)

  
So at first, I installed the below: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9cfb2d51-5ff4-4491-b0e5-b386f32c0992&displaylang=en Which is .net framework 4 (web installer), then I believe I tried the standalone. But then after I did the Redistributable 2.0 installer for Windows XP SP2, but I have SP3, does that just mean its included already? (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=0856EACB-4362-4B0D-8EDD-AAB15C5E04F5&displaylang=en)   My friend told me I needed this before I install Office 2010... I dont know!! So after I installed these different .net frameworks and then office. I have Mozilla crashing me, I disabled the framework assistant plug-in and still happens. Then, my FONT for desktop and start menu icons turns (larger/bold) but not within folders, only what shows without clicking into anything.... so.. 1.System Restore is not an option, that restore point is overwritten now... 2. This is not an appearance tab/settings issue with a larger DPI set or anything like that... Because, sometimes I click on my computer to restart and the font is all fine and will continue to be, othertimes, some program or something causes this to happen, I restart the PC and then its fine again... Can anyone tell me what I did wrong and how to fix it, easily.. if possible :) I have searched all over and while I've noticed people with simila

Access Denied creating a web application in SP Foundation 2010 installed on windows 7 with local acc

  

Hello,

I've installed SharePoint foundation over windows 7 with a local account using this guide: http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/blogs/fromthefield/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=112

When I try to create a new web application the ribbon button is disabled. Using the link located in /_admin/createsite.aspx I get an "Access Denied" error message.

I access the SP Administration with the same user used during installation. This user is local admin and member of SQL server roles "securityadmin" and "dbcreator".

Any idea about this error?

 

Thanks in advance
