Biztalk 2010 and windows sharepoint services adapter web service grayed out RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have wss 3.0 sp2 installed and working, but still, biztalk installation wizard does not let me install the windows sharepoint services adapter web service (option grayed).

    I have reviewed all the other posts, but the language pack does not seem to be the problem.

    What can I do to troubleshoot the issue, can someone give me instructions as to where to look to find what is the exact cause.

    I'm running on a 64 bit machine (2008 R2) with wss 3 sp2.

     

    Thank you

  • Hi,

    According to system requirements for BizTalk 2010 the Windows SharePoint Services adapter Web service requires SharePoint Server 2010, SharePoint Foundation 2010, Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 with Service Pack 1, or Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. I have installed BizTalk 2010 with the SharePoint adapter, but I installed SharePoint Foundation before hand (different scenario). You state you installed WSS 3.0 SP2 and it might be possible that this is not supported. You can contact MS Support to ask for assistance. In past language pack can make a difference, see this thread (if you have not seen it already). Finally you can review all system requirement and see if any are missing on your machine/environment
