Installing SharePoint 2010 on Windows7

The installation requirement for SharePoint 2010 based on the operating system of the local computer. We have several options for preconfiguring the operating system of a local computer on which we will install SharePoint 2010 for development purposes.

In any development environment, we should use a computer with an x64-capable CPU, and at least 2 gigabytes (GB) of RAM to install and run SharePoint Foundation.

Following are the options:

·         Install SharePoint on Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 x64 (or Windows Server 2008 R2 x64).

·         Use Microsoft Hyper-V and install SharePoint on a virtual machine running a Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 x64 (or Windows Server 2008 R2 x64) guest operating system.

·         Install SharePoint on Windows 7 x64, Windows Vista Service Pack 1 x64, or Windows Vista Service Pack 2 x64.

·         Use Microsoft Hyper-V and install SharePoint on a virtual machine running a Windows 7 x64, Windows Vista Service Pack 1 x64, or Windows Vista Service Pack 2 x64 guest operating system.

We must download and install the WCF HotFix for Microsoft Windows.

Here I am going to explain the software requirements and installation process in Windows7:

1)    We have to download and install the WCF Hotfix for Windows 7 (Windows6.1-KB976462-v2-x64.msu (4.13 mb)) from the official website of Microsoft: http://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/Downloads/DownloadDetails.aspx?DownloadID=23806

2)    Then we have to download and install the Windows Identity Foundation (Windows6.1-KB974405-x64.msu (1.47 mb)) from the Microsoft official website: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=17331

3)    Download and Install SharePoint Server (setup.exe) but before starting the setup configure the IIS on your system.
