How to create a new PWA instance on the Project Server 2010 Beta VM Image (Graphical Step-by-Step)

Posted on April 26, 2010 by

First of all a Big Kudos go out to the Project 2010 product team for building and making the Microsoft Project Server 2010 – Virtual Machine publicly available. If you haven’t downloaded the virtual machine image yet, here’s where you can get it:

http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=21099

Now the really nice thing about this VM image is that it’s already preconfigured and ready to go and comes with a VERY detailed demo script that covers a lot material. Let’s fast forward a bit… You’ve gone through the demo script and really like all the new features, heck you might even be asked to do your own demo for your fellow colleagues or God-forbid, the Management Team or Executives.

But the good news is they like it too and all agree that you need to do a “Proof-of-Concept” or “Pilot” for the organization, but obviously you won’t be able to use the pre-configured Contoso PWA instance as it won’t be the same configuration as your organization.

So what are your options?

Looking for SharePoint Foundation Server 2010 and SharePoint Designer 2010? (32-bit and 64-bit)

Posted on April 22, 2010 by

I guess I was like every other Microsoft Geek today and started downloading SharePoint Server 2010, Office Professional 2010, Visio 2010 and Project 2010 from my Microsoft TechNet Plus account.

But alas, SharePoint Foundation Server 2010 (replacement for WSS 3.0) and SharePoint Designer 2010 could not be found on TechNet. You remember, those are the FREEBIES from Microsoft. So I get a tweet from my buddy Ivor from Ontario that they were located at the Microsoft Downloads site.

And sure enough here they are:

Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=49c79a8a-4612-4e7d-a0b4-3bb429b46595

Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010 (64-bit)
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=566d3f55-77a5-4298-bb9c-f55f096b125d

Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010 (32-bit)
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=d88a1505-849b-4587-b854-a7054ee28d66

Have Fun!!

Microsoft Office Professional / Project / Visio 2010 – x64 or x86? (64 bit vs. 32 bit)

Posted on April 16, 2010 by

So here’s a couple of good questions for my geek friends out there…

1. How many of you went to your Microsoft TechNet Subscriber account to get the latest and greatest Office Professional Plus 2010 OR Project 2010 OR Visio 2010 today?�
I’m sure quite a lot, if not all of you did 

2. Now many of you immediately went and downloaded the 64 bit version?�
After all, your computer’s operating system is probably Windows 7 64 bit right?

3. Did you get a chance to read the View Details, before clicking the Download link?
