Preferred Solution: Do I need to install Sharepoint on Windows server?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am wondering if it is possible to use Sharepoint in connection with Access 2007 for the purposes of building a database to manage information that myself and employees out of the office can access... if I don't know the first thing about servers.

Does Microsoft make this possible, or does it require a high level of server knowledge?

I have no experience using or maintaining this or any other version of SharePoint.

I would like to know if anyone out there has any good info to pass on that would help me to understand the concept of SharePoint as well as common practices of maintaining it.
I have gone thru the training tutorial from MS, but it only shows the 'Good' about SharePoint. I would like to know what to expect from the install all the way to the daily maintenance.

Thanks for any advice or help.

hey guys I was a little confused if this was the right place 'all other applications'
So I have extremely limited experience with Sharepoint 2013.
But my boss asked me today if I could just 'check out' what possibilities we might have with sharepoint 2013.
Regarding two things.
1: We have documentation spread all over our 'older sharepoint' and 3 other purchased systems..
this documentation is everything from firewall logs, to password lists, IP lists, printer manuals, etc etc.
2: We have our own constructed Wiki, in reality we have 600 documents in a folder.
like: "How to get rid of this virus" "How to push our security out on iphones" articles to help us in the IT department.
We have an Active Directory and Exchange user setup.
So lets say you wanted to sort all this out, and have it placed in one spot.
with easy search functions, and of course the possibility to limit users as only our Admin accounts from the AD should 
be allowed to view the password lists.

Not knowing anything about sharepoint 2013, could you maybe point me in a direction towards something that might be suitable?
also if you plan on suggesting alternatives, let me make it clear we don't wish this to be online, no cloud services

I think what I'm doing should be pretty simple but I'm not sure why its not working.

We have a Linksys RV016 router receiving 2 separate dynamic IP connections on WAN1 (Linksys adsl modem) and WAN2 (Billion wireless adsl router). We also have a dynamic DNS service subscribed to from DynDNS.

Currently, all three the RV016 and both adsl modems are configured to report the public IP to the DDNS service. I'm not sure if ONLY the RV016 should be doing this, or only ONE of the two modems, or if it doesn't mattter.

We have a SHarepoint Server running behind the RV016 that I want to make available from outside, by Internet users.

In the RV016, I've enabled the DDNS service, and forwarded ports 80, 444 and the specific port that our Sharepoint Site is running answering on. I've forwarded these to the static IP address that is assigned to our Sharepoint Server. I've set the Access Rules to ALLOW these connections from any interface, always.

With the RV016 Firewall on or off, hitting the DDNS name always times out, but I know the DDNS service is working because the login information resolves and updates in the RV016 admin, and pinging the name resolves to the same IP address as our reported public IP address.

What else must I do on the RV016, or what should I be doing on either or both of the dsl modems? I have disconnected one, and then alternatively the other adsl router/modems so that we're only receiving one internet connection in trying... Read more

On January 13, 2003, Microsoft released Service Pack 2 (SP2) for SharePoint Portal Server 2001. Soon afterward, continued internal testing revealed a previously undiscovered problem in the service pack. Microsoft immediately discontinued downloads of the service pack and is completing the required updates, which will be made available soon. In the meantime, Microsoft has provided this patch for customers who may have downloaded and installed this service pack.

This problem involves the way that indexing is performed. Indexing is a process initiated by content sources set up by the administrator, through which the content on the server is made searchable. This problem may, in some cases, cause the indexing process to be incomplete, therefore preventing portions of the content from being exposed to searches.

Microsoft recommends that customers who have downloaded and installed SharePoint Portal Server SP2 apply this patch, or avoid performing indexing (also known as crawling) until the corrected version of the service pack is made available. Customers who downloaded SharePoint Portal Server SP2 require either this patch or the updated SP2 to correct the problem

I have a print server running 2003 standard sp2, I have been looking for a way to allow helpdesk staff install and manage printers without logging into the server and without adding them to the admin group.

So I added them to the power users group and the print operators group, that worked fine they were able to UNC ( \\servername ) to the server and install printers, drivers, as well as uninstall drivers? printers ect????.
Now the problem??? this works great from an XP box, but when we try it from a windows 7 machine we get access denied. More specifically it acts like it is going to install the printer then when it comes to the driver installation part it fails ?Printer driver was not installed. Access is denied.?

No changes have been made to the permissions I can log into an XP machine with my profile and it works fine log out go to a Windows 7 machine use the same credentials and I get the above message access is denied. I am an admin of both machines on the windows 7 machine I have UAC turned off completely. Running XP Pro SP3 & Windows 7 pro both are 32 bit machines.

I should also add that I have made the necessary group policy changes to allow printer operators to Load/Unload device drivers and under the local policies/security options I ensured that the Prevent users from installing printer drivers was Disabled.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I use SharePoint 2010 and 2013 and need Designer for both versions. 2010 has installed fine, but 2013 gets almost all the way through the install then unhelpfully just says "Microsoft SharePoint Designer encountered an error during setup" and no further details given. I'm running Office 32-bit on a 64-bit machine. The issues have been with the 32-bit version. I know that with the rest of Office being 32-bit I need to stick with that, but any ideas on how to troubleshoot the install? Thanks!

A:SharePoint Designer 2013 install issue

That's very interesting. I can certainly pass that on to the server team. I don't have Admin rights on my machine. The strange thing is the previous person who used this computer had no issues with running both versions (prior to the machine being wiped for me) which makes it all the more surprising that there'd be an issue.

So I have a removable SSD so that I could install O/S to suit. I installed Windows 8.1 Pro on it and had 2 3GB data drives attached. Changed these to GPT volumes and windows didn't like it and I had to do a repair on it. Repaired okay.
Tonight I decided I wanted to try out Server 2012 R2 to see if I should update my 2008 R2 version or not. Popped out the SSD and slipped the blank one in. Install picked up off my USB stick and started the install. Got to the part to select the drive to install on and it throws up an error 80300024. Check to see if it will install on the GPT drives but no way it says.

Looking it up it seems that Windows does not like a previous O/S even though the actual drive has gone. Only way to get it to install is to remove the plugs on the other two drives until it is installed and then it will be okay. What a right pain that is because the plugs are under the video card so it has to come out to do it.
Supposedly this was on a bug list with Windows 7. Guess they forgot there bug list.

I've been running Win7 for a little over a year now with no problems at all. We have recently changed our Engineering Change Order process over to an electronic form through Sharepoint. Apparently, some users with Windows7 claim they are unable to access the forms on Sharepoint, and this makes everyone in the department think its a Windows 7 problem. I tell them that I can access everything, and I run 7, but they still want to blame the OS and go back to XP.

Has anyone else had the frustration of dealing with people who blame the OS on their problems? I feel that this instance may have to do with the version of IE they are running. I'm running IE8 and can access everything that XP users can with no problems.

A:Windows Server Install- How?

Windows Server is a full OS that is installed like any client OS. Note that there may be a "(Server Core Installation)" option. This installs the OS with no GUI and all administration must be done from the command line. This option is probably best avoided.

I have a server that had IE10(?) on it, which wasn't working with an app, so somebody uninstalled it. Instead of reverting back to an earlier version of IE, it has completely removed it from the server. This occurred before my involvement.
I have downloaded the x64 IE8 install from MS, but it won't allow me to install, I get the error "Internet Explorer 8 is not supported on this operating system". If I download x64 IE10 it will install fine, but this version is not compatible with
the other app that caused the original problem. Bottom line: it HAS to be IE8.

None of the below have worked for me:
Booting into clean mode then running the install - no difference
Running this command to restore the default security settings: secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose - no difference
Running the command to enable the IE feature: dism /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:Internet-Explorer-Optional-amd64 - return error is "Feature name Internet-Explorer-Optional-amd64 is unknown"

I may have tried some other stuff but the repeated banging of my head against the wall has affected my memory.
Does anyone have a clue on how I can get IE8 installed onto this server?

Thanks in advance!

A:Unable to install after windows 2008 R2 server

When an operating system is already installed and you want to replace it with a different one, you have to go into the BIOS Setup and change the first boot device to CD-ROM.

When you turn on your PC, look at the splash-screen which appears during the initial boot process. It will say "Press X to for Setup" (where X is the actual key you need to press and hold until the BIOS Setup screen appears).

I have vista home edition and I want to remove it and install Windows 2003server. I followed the steps:

1. Insert the installation cd for 2003 server and run the exe file. It gives a message that the file cannot be run in the program compatibility mode. If I remove the compatibity option from the properties of the .exe file, the option to install is disabled.

2. Then I tried booting the system from the cd. It runs ok for a while and then throws an error message (blue screen, hope most of you might have seen that atleast once in your lifetime) comes up which has a very long text. Here it goes.

"The problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time you have seen this stop the error message, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

A:Install Windows 2003 Server over Vista

I may not be of much help since I am trying to do the same thing as you. I purchased an HP a64000z, slated to be a computer lab "mule". Came with Vista Basic. I knew better not to attempt to install over Vista directly.

Here are the issues to overcome:
First thing is to obtain the SATA drivers for the motherboard. This is needed for W2003S to be able to recognize the HDD. Vista has the driver, but it's no help when you install a new OS. I am looking for the drivers and will post back when I have some info.

Windows 2003S may have an issue installing SATA drivers if a floppy drive is not present (go figure!). So it might be prudent to install a loose floppy drive just in case before attempting anything.

The best solution might be to create an install CD containing the SATA drivers and update the .INF file to tell W2003S where to find them, but this is kinda involved and I'm trying to stay out of that one.

In any case, good luck and please let me know what you find out, I'll do the same.

I have an HP F380 that I'm trying to install on a Windows home server I just put together. It would not install by itself, the device manager shows ? next to it, and I tried downloading the drivers/firmware from the HP site and it gives me an error when I try it that way. Any advice, or is it just not compatible with this OS?

IBM Thinkpad
Pentium 3 700 mhz Processor
13 GB Hard Drive
256 MB RAM

I want to remove Windows Server 2003 and perform a clean install of Windows XP. When i try installing XP it doesn't allow me to proceed and the continue install button comes out blank. Moreover, for some reason it does not allow me to boot from the disk eventhough i changed the settings on the BIOS. Can anyone provide me with the steps on how to override Windows Server 2003 so that i may install XP.

A:Removing windows server 2003 and install XP

Once you set your BIOS to boot first from cd . . when it restarts you will see a black screen with a prompt "Press any key to boot from CD" . . do that and you will be able to delete partitions and recreate the ones you want and proceed to formating and installing XP

That message can pass quickly, so have a finger on the keyboard when you boot. This will delete all data on the drive so be sure you have your important data backed up.

I was having trouble in installing .net Framework 3.5 in Windows Server 2012. I tried many methods and did not work. At last I used the following method that worked.
I searched internet for many months and at last I found the following files. I copied the files in C:\35 folder. Any folder name will do.

Now :

Run Powershell as administrator and run the command below.
Install-WindowsFeature Net-Framework-Core -source "c:\35"
I waited 10 minutes and it installed. At last I have managed to install it. 
I hope this helps many people.
