This product can only be installed if Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 has been installed first


While trying to install VS extensions for sharepoint 2007/wss 3.0 on the machine that does not has sharepoint installed, get the following error.


  1. open the regedit and create the following keys and the string value

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\12.0]
  2. If you are new to regester edit, simply copy the above text into a new notepad, save the notepad as 'temp.reg' -> double click on the temp.reg -> accept the warning.
