Is it required now to upgrade to SharePoint 2010 Foundation etc. first before using Office 2010 with SharePoint??
Or can Office 2010 work in even a limited manner with WSS 3.0??
Thank you, Tom

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.
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?
We recently upgraded everyone to Office 2010, but we are still using MOSS 2007. Since the Office upgrade, I am getting numerous reports of problems with the 'required fields' of any document be editing (or newly created) when users try to save it back to
These documents are throwing error messages indicating that some required properties 'are missing or invalid'. However all the needed info is indeed there. Even existing documents (that already have the field data in place) are giving the message when a
save (or save as) is attempted. However, if the user saves a copy of the document locally and then manually uploads it via the SharePoint UI, it works fine. It appears to only come up when they use an Office app for editing and try to save it directly back
to the server from the app. This process worked fine with Office 2007.
This only started when the Office 2010 upgrades were rolled out, and (as far as I know) no changes were made to SP at all. I have never seen this phenomenon before, so I would greatly appreciate any advice and/or education on this. :)
We planned on upgrading our SharePoint server from 2007 to 2010 before rolling out Office 2010 by about 6 months. We were just told yesterday that this is a bad idea due to incompatabilities with Infopath and SharePoint Designer. We realize we have to run
SPD 2010 with SharePoint 2010, but are the other Office applications really that big of a deal? We only have a handful of SPD users, out of thousands of everyday users. All of our Infopath forms are designed to be browser based, and not opened in the client.
If this is a really an issue, what types of problems will we see running the Enterprise version of SharePoint 2010 while our users will be on Office 2007? For Infopath developement, can we not just upgrade those developers to Office 2010, and leave the rest
of our users on 2007 for a while longer? The only real issue I can find would be some of the Office Web Applications would have features disabled if the user didn't have a full Office 2010 Suite installed.

To work with SharePoint workspace, does the client machine require Windows Office 2010. I have a External list, which is connected to the BCS. The client does not have Windows Office 2010. Is Windows Office 2010 required for working with SharePoint
If yes, What are the ways to do Offline External List Capability with BCS other than SharePoint workspace?
I have installed a SharePoint Foundation 2010 in a Farm environment and installed Office Web Apps 2010. I have not been able to view Word documents or PowerPoint documents inside of the web browser. I can view Excel documents okay and I can edit a Word doc
in the browser.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what may be the problem?
SharePoint 2010 introduces a number of new ways to access business data and present it to the user. We'll show you several options that range from no-code solutions to fully integrated Office add-ins.

Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 include a new set of components called Application Services. These put a rich set of tools in a developer's bag for Office automation. We'll show you how to use Office OpenXML, Word Automation Services and SharePoint to build a simple application that merges separate status reports into a single document.

we receive error while trying to create excel sheet using the template we have uploaded on the SharePoint 2007.
This occurs on a machine that has Office 2010 installed. Earlier the machine had Office 2007 and everything was working fine.
Can you let me know why is problem is coming and how to resolve this.
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
