SharePoint 2007 Sequential Workflow in Visual Studio RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I've got a problem of creating Sharepoint 2007 Sequential Workflow via Visual Studio 2008.

    I have a Visual Studio 2008 on my machine which is not the server machine (Window XP) and a server which has SharePoint Server. I had been assigned task to work on Sharepoint Workflow. So, I have decided to create a project on my Visual Studio 2008, Sharepoint 2007 Sequential Workflow. But, I got the problem down here which blocked me. 

    "32-bit version of SharePoint Server is not installed. Please install a 32-bit version of SharePoint Server"

    and following error in other system:

    "Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=12.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c' or one of its dependencies"

    - I am also not allowed to install Visual Studio 2008 on the server.

    - I could not install Sharepoint Service 3.0 or SharePoint Server on my machine.

    I hope you some body could help me with this matter.

  • The SharePoint specific projects for workflow will only work in Visual Studio when it is installed directly on the server.  Most developers get around this problem by developing in a virtual environment like Virtual PC or Vmware.  That way you can have an image that has SharePoint server and Visual Studio installed.

  • Hi Paul,

    is there any way to update list item programmatically from VBA macro?

  • Sorry, that's one I don't know.  But I suspect it would be difficult if not impossible since the macro would be running on the client.
