SP2007 and VS 2010 and Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to create a custom workflow in Visual Studio 2010 SP1 using SharePoint 2007. When I try to create a new project using the 2007 Sequential Workflow, I get the following error message:

    "A 32 bit version of Windows SharePoint Services is required by this project but is not installed on this system. Please install Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 available from the Microsoft Download Center or as Part of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007."

    However, Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SP 3 is already installed.

    This is occuring on Windows Server 2008 R2 64bit.

    I have tried installing the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SP2 32bit from :


    But I receive the following error:

    "Setup is unable to proceed due to the following errors. This 32 bit product must be run on a 32 bit Operating System. For 64 bit support, please install the 64 bit version of this product."

    Can someone guide me on how I can configure our server so that Visual Studio 2010 can work to create custom SharePoint workflows and other SharePoint objects using VS2010?

    Thank you.

  • VS2010 is not fully supported for developing custom solutions for MOSS 2007. Your best bet is to use VS2008 or try to use WSPBuilder as outlined in this article.
