Can't upload powerpoint to slide gallery after upgrade to Windows 7

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

Several months back I created a slide gallery on sharepoint 2007.  All the integration with powerpoint 2007 worked great.  I have since gotten a new laptop which has Windows 7 but I installed the same version of Office 2007. When I try to upload to my slide gallery now it gives me the "This feature requires Microsoft Office PowerPoint Professional" message.  In researching, I understand that this feature actually requires Office Professional Plus, but I previously had no problem with the version of office that I had.

why is this happening?  Any way around it?  Any way for me to confirm which version of Office I have?

Cannot open windows .net form in powerpoint slide show window


We have successfully created .NET addin in PowerPoint. On the click of this addin, we have opened a .net Form where there are three buttons(say Login and etc). On the click of Login button, we opened Login form. This works perfectly in PowerPoint.  But when we have slide show window, on the click on Login button, Login form gets opened on main PowerPoint window, but not on SlideShow window. This works properly on winXP m/c. We are facing this issue on win7 m/c. Please help me.

Thanks in advance.

SqlServer - Windows Account to install Application from Gallery


Referring to this tutorial: http://www.asp.net/webmatrix/tutorials/download-and-install-an-asp-net-application

I selected umbraco cms and got this wizard:

I already have Standard Sql Server 2005 on my machine which I wanted to us for above DB and not SqlExpress.

I did not remember "sa" account pwd nor I use explicitly any account to connect to my Sqlserver. I use Windows Authentication account i.e implicit authentication. So I created new account and gave all rights and used it in the above wizard and was able to install the database after some struggle.

My question is: What if I want to use my Windows Account to install the database above? Why the wizard don't have any option to use Windows Integrated Authentication?

Note: I can create the DB with external user I created, just looking specifics for using Windows Authentication for above installation.

How to upgrade from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2010 after mistanely de


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

Sharepoint 2007 Upload Multiple Documents error on Windows Vista

Hi all, I am having an issue uploading multiple documents from a share using the "Upload Multiple Documents" on the toolbar in a document library. The user experiencing this problem has a Windows Vista machine that recently replaced XP. They have mapped shares that they use. The shares work fine in windows explorer, but when you click the + next to the share through the "Upload Multiple Documents" function on sharepoint, the machine thinks for a while, then removes the + and shows no documents. Anyone know why this is happening?

Cannot upload multiple documents from DFS network drive with Windows 7

Hi,   We have a Moss2007 installation with SP2 and CU update October 2009. All our clients have a network drive to a DFS link. We use XP, Vista and Windows7 clients   Our DFS structure: DFS-Namespace\A LOT OF DFS-Links\   Problem: When a Windows 7 user want to upload multiple documents (Doc Library menu->Upload->Upload Multiple documents), he cannot expand the DFS network drive. This problems is only on Windows7 and not on XP or Vista.   I think that Windows 7 has another interpretation about the DFS links because when we try to upload multiple documents from a network drive that is linked directly to a DFS folder, you see all the folders and documents when expanded.     \\DFS-Namespace\DFS-Links   -> Not working \\DFS-Namespace\DFS-Link\folder   -> No problem     When you go directly to the network drive though Windows explorer, you see that Windows 7 show a folder with shortcut icon instead of a normal folder icon for a DFS LINK. Windows Vista show’s  an normal folder icon for a DFS Link. Maybe not relevant, it ‘s only a remark.     Someone any idée?   Regards,

MOSS 2007 to SharePoint Server 2010 Hybrid Upgrade Approach on Windows Server 2003 x64

There's some guidance circulating about upgrading to 2010 with a mix of In-Place and Database Attach upgrade methods. My Central Admin and SharePoint Web App are on a 64 bit server, but it's running on Windows server 2003 x64 and not on Windows Server 2008 or 2008 R2. SharePoint Team Blog says Server 2008 or 2008 R2 is required for SP2010. If I want to do the hybrid upgrade approach, is it possible to first upgrade the OS to Server 2008 R2 on the server where my Central Admin and SP Web App runs?  Or will this break MOSS 2007?

Cannot upgrade SQL Server 2008 R2 on Windows 2008 R2 64-bit to SP1

I am attempting to upgrade SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise edition (64-bit) to service pack 1.  The product version is 10.50.1600.1, which is, to the best of my knowledge, SQL Server 2008 R2, and also, again, to the best of my knowledge, an RTM version (when I run query SELECT SERVERPROPERT('productversion', SERVERPROPERTY('productlevel') in SSMS, the results display as "10.50.1600.1" and "RTM".  I downloaded SQLServer2008SP1-KB968369-x64-ENU.exe.  When I run this application, and get to the "Select Features" dialogue, no instance specific features are displayed (e.g. Database Engine, Analysis Server), Shared Features are displayed but cannot be selected, and when "Next" is clicked, the error "There are no SQL Server instances or shared features that can be updated on this computer". The OS on which I'm installing the service pack is Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise. What little I have gleaned from similar postings suggests that the installed version of SQL is not an RTM version.  How can that be, if, the only version I've ever installed on this new (virtual) server is reporting that it is, in fact, RTM? By the way, I've tried running "Repair" on the 3 installed named instances and the shared features, then reinstalling SP1, with no luck.

How to upload files to remote machine using FTP or other method in VB.Net 2005 (Windows Application)



I have to create an application to upload and download files using FTP.
Are there any classes, methods in VB.Net 2005(Windows Application) to do this?

I have created a small GUI for this.

It contains 4 text boxes - Path of Local file to be uploaded, IP address of remote machine, User name and password of remote machine At last there is one Transfer button when I click on this transfer button that file should get copied to the remote machine.


I tried this using FTPWebRequest class by reading example in msdn.

But to connect to remote machine it requires URI format of FTP and I only have IP address of that remote machine. I think there is no web server on that remote machine.

Should I need to install web server on that remote machine.

Or is there any other method to do upload files to remote machine ?
