Installing SharePoint 2010 on Windows 7

The steps given here to install SharePoint 2010 on Windows 7 is for the sole purpose of testing and learning, please do not use this setup for production environment.

3. Run C:\SharePointFoundation.exe /extract:c:\SharePoint to extract the setup files, do not use winzip or any other utility to extract the files.

4. Edit the installation configuration file, config.xml, located in C:\SharePoint\files\Setup\config.xml.

5. Add this line inside the tag: <Setting Id="AllowWindowsClientInstall" Value="True"/> .

6. save and close the file, do not delete anything from the config.xml file.

7. At the command prompt execute 'FilterPack.msi' from the path: C:\SharePoint\PrerequisiteInstallerFiles\FilterPack\FilterPack.msi.

9. Also install Chart Controls and SQL Server Analysis Services if you are installing SharePoint Server 2010.

10. Use the below command to enable each of the required features.

start /w pkgmgr /iu:IIS-WebServerRole;IIS-WebServer;IIS-CommonHttpFeatures;IIS-StaticContent;IIS-DefaultDocument;IIS-DirectoryBrowsing;IIS-HttpErrors;IIS-ApplicationDevelopment;IIS-ASPNET;IIS-NetFxExtensibility;IIS-ISAPIExtensions;IIS-ISAPIFilter;IIS-HealthAndDiagnostics;IIS-HttpLogging;IIS-LoggingLibraries;IIS-RequestMonitor;IIS-HttpTracing;IIS-CustomLogging;IIS-ManagementScriptingTools;IIS-Security;IIS-BasicAuthentication;IIS-WindowsAuthentication;IIS-DigestAuthentication;IIS-RequestFiltering;IIS-Performance;IIS-HttpCompressionStatic;IIS-HttpCompressionDynamic;IIS-WebServerManagementTools;IIS-ManagementConsole;IIS-IIS6ManagementCompatibility;IIS-Metabase;IIS-WMICompatibility;WAS-WindowsActivationService;WAS-ProcessModel;WAS-NetFxEnvironment;WAS-ConfigurationAPI;WCF-HTTP-Activation;WCF-NonHTTP-Activation

11. Now run Setup.exe from C:\SharePoint\ and choose the standalone installtion type.

12. After installation you will be prompted to run SharePoint Product and Technologies Wizard, choose not to run the wizard by clearing the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard check box and closing the completed installation dialog box.

13. Install SQL Server 2008 KB 970315 x64, and then manually start the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard by opening a Command Prompt window and executing C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\BIN\psconfigui.exe.

1. For running the SharePoint Products and Technologies Wizard, you must have admin rights on the machine.
2. Do not use any third party tools to extract setup files, use the windows extract command.
I believe this will help you in preparing a development environment for SharePoint 2010, if you face any problem, go through the steps once again and make sure you have done it exactly as I mentioned else ping me. :)

SQL Azure Error - 40544

If the size of your database reaches its MAXSIZE you will receive an error code 40544. You cannot insert or update data, or create new objects (such as tables, stored procedures, views, and functions).To fix this issue either increase your database size or delete data. For increasing/decreasing SQL Azure database size, you can use this command on the Master database. Alter DATABASE database_name MODIFY (MAXSIZE = {1|5|10|20|30… 150}GB); example: ALTER DATABASE sampleDB MODIFY (MAXSIZE = 5gb);
