Install SharePoint Server 2010 on Windows 7 x64

Steps:


You can install SharePoint Server 2010 on your client OS by modifying a config file.

Upon the start up of the SharePoint installer and you'll get the following error:


Go to property of setup.exe

setup_path.png

So it seems that the installer was unpacked in C:\Program Files (x86)\MSECache\oserver2010. You can browse to that directory now.



  • Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\MSECache\oserver2010

  • Go to the Files folder

  • Go to the Setup folder

  • Open config.xml

  • Add the following line before the closing </configuration> tag

<Setting Id="AllowWindowsClientInstall" Value="True"/>


Once you've modified the config file, you'll be able to install SharePoint Server 2010 on your Windows 7 machine!

Enjoy!
