SharePoint On Vista! Another good reason for dev to use Vista?

Filed under: Sharepoint,Windows Vista — patrickyong @ 9:13 pm

Yup, you read it right, SharePoint can runs on Windows Vista thanks to Bamboo Solution’s setup helper here. Many thanks to Jonas for commenting it on my blog post.

Go check it out today, there is a walkthrough with screenshots as well. It shows Windows SharePoint Services but I guess it might work for MOSS 2007 as well. 🙂



  1. I must be missing something…
    Why is this good? I run a VM running Windows Server with WSS (or MOSS depending on which environment I want to work with) on my Vista machine… what benefit is there to running it straight on my machine instead of on a VM Server environment (like it will be in production)?

  2. very simple, not all machines are powerful enough to run vmware or vpc. and running win server solely might not work sometimes due to hardware support issue or client app compatibility.
