Finally – a way to install WSS 3 onto Vista! WOOHOO!

Bamboo Solutions have come up with a way of installing WSS 3 onto Windows Vista. Developers everywhere, rejoice! No longer do we have to run a separate VM / VPC with a server OS on it just to develop against WSS 3.

They have all the information here – hopefully Microsoft will not issue a takedown notice (which would be an incredible shame… I mean, it’s an unsupported configuration… and it’s a free download from the MS website… but a similar sort of thing’s happened before). It looks like they acknowledge its existence but refuse to have anything to do with it.

Thanks Bamboo Solutions! You guys have made my life easier…

I'm a SharePoint consultant. I'm also slowly going bald, seem to have a permanent spare tyre around my waist and enjoy socialising with friends over a beer or 10. The last 2 may possibly be related. Started working with SharePoint when the first version was in limited beta release (participated in the Technology Adoption Program while at Woolworths) and have been committed to the adoption of the technology as a business enabler ever since.
