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

Situation:

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.

Fix:

  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]
    “Sharepoint”=”Installed”
  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.
