Installing SharePoint 2010 on Windows 8

Just for kicks I got Windows 8 Preview installed today and thought I'd see if I could get SharePoint 2010 installed as well. Fortunately, the setup instructions are pretty much identical to the ones used for Windows 7. The important thing to remember is that you need to make sure IIS uses .NET 2.0 instead of 4.0.
  • Install SQL Server 2008. I used R2, but you can use any version listed in the requirements.
  • Ensure all of the required IIS features are installed through Programs and Features. The easiest way to do this is to use the script that Microsoft provides. You can do this by copying the following into a Command Prompt.
start /w pkgmgr /iu:IIS-WebServerRole;IIS-WebServer;IIS-CommonHttpFeatures;^
IIS-StaticContent;IIS-DefaultDocument;IIS-DirectoryBrowsing;IIS-HttpErrors;^
IIS-ApplicationDevelopment;IIS-ASPNET;IIS-NetFxExtensibility;^
IIS-ISAPIExtensions;IIS-ISAPIFilter;IIS-HealthAndDiagnostics;^
IIS-HttpLogging;IIS-LoggingLibraries;IIS-RequestMonitor;IIS-HttpTracing;IIS-CustomLogging;IIS-ManagementScriptingTools;^
IIS-Security;IIS-BasicAuthentication;IIS-WindowsAuthentication;IIS-DigestAuthentication;^
IIS-RequestFiltering;IIS-Performance;IIS-HttpCompressionStatic;IIS-HttpCompressionDynamic;^
IIS-WebServerManagementTools;IIS-ManagementConsole;IIS-IIS6ManagementCompatibility;^
IIS-Metabase;IIS-WMICompatibility;WAS-WindowsActivationService;WAS-ProcessModel;^
WAS-NetFxEnvironment;WAS-ConfigurationAPI;WCF-HTTP-Activation;^
WCF-NonHTTP-Activation
  • Update IIS and Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1 to use .NET Framework Version 2.0 instead of 4.0. You can do this by opening IIS, clicking the root host and then clicking Change .NET Framework Version in the right Actions pane.
  • Install SharePoint 2010 prerequisites for Windows 7. The only ones I needed to install were the following:
  • Per the setup instructions, before running SharePoint setup, update the SharePoint 2010 config.xml found under [SharePointSetupFiles]\Files\Setup. You will need to change the Setting Value in AllowWindowsClientInstall to True.

  2. Hi I am also working with sharepoint installed on a Windows 8 developer preview machine, but I have problems with Windows Identity Foundation. After successfully completing the basic installation, the configuration wizard started and tried to configure the database then I got an error: can not find windows.indentitymodel 3.5

  3. Sadly I don't have a working instance anymore. You could try installing the WIF SDK per this discussion. Best of luck.

  4. thank you for your reaction. But unfortunately it's not the solution for the problem, to install the sdk you need also the Windows identity foundation. I've download the update for windows 7 x64 from this site http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=17331 and used this manual http://blogs.msdn.com/b/dmitrim/archive/2011/02/23/sharepoint-foundation-2010-on-windows-azure.aspx to get de update working without a positief result.

  7. In windows 8, WIF(Windows Identity Framework) is a feature of the OS. You don't need the separate download. Just use the "Turn windows features on and off" action in the left pane of "Uninstall programs"

  8. Hi

    to install the prerequisites, I have this error - Windows Update Standalone Installer. The certificate for the signer of the message is invalid or not found - I activate the Windows Identity Framework 3.5 feature and the error persists.

    Any idea?
