SharePoint Services 3.0
I am trying to install SharePoint services 3.0 on one of my test servers. The file downlaoded fine. As soon as I run the .exe, it starts off in the usual way and then i get this message :
"The installation of this package has failed".
What kind of help is that??? lol
This is my first venture into SharePoint and so far it is not going to well!!!:p
Have you got .net framework 2 installed or enabled IIS?
I have got .net 3 and IIS installed, but nothing. I am going to try a restart and then see.
Nope still the same error message. This is very strange.
Is there anything else that I need to configure?
Sorry for the delay in getting back.
A few things just to check - these are required for WSS3 to be installed.
Windows Server 2003 SP1
.net framework 2.0 <- must be installed after enabling IIS
enable asp.net in IIS web extentions.
Do you get an error message in the event log?
Welcome to Sharepoint - this is one of the many frustrations I've had with it (and Search Server Express which is basically sharepoint!)
It will have written a log file (probably in your temp folder); have a look in there and see if there's anything of more use and try googling on that - I did find what was wrong (I've had this several times with different problems each time!)
Can't remember but don't you need to run aspnet_regiis.exe from the .NET v2 framework folder before installing Sharepoint 3.
The version that comes off the CD on Windows 2003 R2 is WSS2
Do you have it working yet?
