Currently, the feature supports browsing only IIS websites. We already have showing only Sharepoint sites on our TODO list.The website "Default Web Site" is an IIS website (stopped), but not a SharePoint site, it should not be listed here.
To force central administration you can condition BrowseIISWebsitesDlg and set AI_WSP_URL property to the site URL you need.Also I would like to force the client to install the feature to central administration, Is there a way to achieve this? (it would be nice if this was checked, but not shown)
It's currently scheduled for version 9.5.When is the "showing only Sharepoint sites" TODO item planned for implementation?
The solution will be registered as deployed for that site in Central Administration.What will happen when I (or a client) select a non-SharePoint site for deployment?
A different approach is to remove the site browsing dialog and create a custom dialog which asks the user for the target site. For example, you can use an edit box control which uses AI_WSP_URL property.You told me to set a condition on the BrowseIISWebsitesDlg and set AI_WSP_URL property to the site URL I need.
The problem is, for every client, the port number Central Administration is installed on may differ.
You can use searches to determine the SharePoint version. The search properties can then be used to condition the solution features in Organization page.How do I deploy a solution specially for SharePoint 2007 and when 2010 is installed, take another solution to deploy?
This is caused by a bug. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. A bugfix will be included in the next release. Until then, a solution is to create your own custom launch condition.Also, when adding sharepoint as launch condition, the application tells you: cannot be installed on systems without Microsoft SharePoint Services 3.0
If you are using a database file, you can condition its component in Organization page. If you are creating it through an SQL script, you can condition the actual script in SQL Scripts page.How can I install a SQL database only on one specific feature?
Currently this is not supported. A solution can be deployed during maintenance, but it's target sites cannot be changed if it was deployed during install. I have added this improvement on our TODO list and it will be available in a future version. Thank you for your suggestion.I would like to give the users the possibility to "Add or change features", when they choose this, they should be able to check and uncheck websites to deploy the SharePoint solution to.
You can try this:Also I cannot figureout how to select all IIS websites in the dialog by default
Code: Select all
Name: [IISBrowseListBox] Argument: [IISBrowseOutput]
