Visual Studio 2008 Extensions for WSS Version 1.2/VSeWSS v1.2



Tools for developing custom SharePoint applications: Visual Studio project templates for Web Parts, site definitions, and list definitions; and a stand-alone utility program, the SharePoint Solution Generator.

Download the User Guide and Samples listed here:

The User Guide for this tool can be found here: Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Tools: Visual Studio 2005 Extensions User Guide, Version 1.1

The 1.1 version can be found here for Visual Studio 2005 support: Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Tools: Visual Studio 2005 Extensions, Version 1.1

You can also find the Hands on Labs for Developing Applications on Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

This add-in will not install on an x64 based computer (unbelievable I know), though you might find the How to install Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SP1 on Vista interesting.

  1. I noticed your post about VSeWSS 1.2 not running on a 64bit operating system. I too, was disappointed that the extensions would install on 64 bot os, so I wrote up a blog post on how to enable these extensions to install on a 64 bit OS\’s. Please check it out at http://www.sharepoint-stuff.com/?p=54
    While this isnt supported it atleast start to lets us running 64Bit OS\’s to use VS2008 to write webparts, etc.
    Let me know what you think
    Thanks

  2. That\’s a great post John, but actually I have been using STSDev for my SharePoint Development.  Gives you a lot more control over the deployment and configuration of the .wsp files.
