    Hey niners, maybe you guys can help me with a question.  Im trying to develope for Sharepoint 3 without being on the server.  I need to use the sharepoint extentions but it wont let me unless sharepoint is installed. I have found a few SDK's but they are not what im looking for.  If anyone knows how please let me know.

    Your best bet is to build a VM with Server and sharepoint.

    I haven't found a way to run WSS on XP.

    I found when using or developing for SP your best bet is to buy a box of blunt pencils from here

    and stick one in your eye every time you think of trying to accomplish something. I like the softer lead ones Smiley

    I installed the Extensions on XP without a problem, but that might have been the beta. Of course, most of what they give you - like automatic deployment - won't work. It's not a supported scenario.

    What are you trying to develop? If it's just webparts, you can easily live without the extensions. You can just inherit System.Web.Webparts.WebPart and deploy it manually to the server. What the extensions give you is an easy way to build Features and Solutions around your code, and they're hell to write manually.

    I b!tched about it a while ago here.

    VS needs to be installed on the server?
