Using from XP Dev Station?

Feb 1, 2008 at 1:56 PM
Is it possible to use this tool from our XP work stations and then deploy to our development WSS Server? The clients can't have Sharepoint installed locally.

Hi Ian,

I don't think the devs are ready to respond to any questions yet (proof-of-concept = unsupported = on your own fella) , so I'll take a stab at it:

No, it is not possible. Why? Because it uses the STSADM utility extensively (to install/deploy etc) and this utility is only functional/available on a machine that has SharePoint locally.

Hope this helps,

Hi all

And how to use this tool on the productive sharepoint server? There is no visual studio installed on our servers?

Thanks chris
