Today I needed to install the sharepoint SDK because I need
to write some code to access it. So I installed
the OfficeServerSDK.exe setup which contains all the SDK stuff. After it is installed I had to ‘find’ where
on my drive it was placed. After some
hunting, I found it on my E: drive.
Inside the new directory is a great big .chm file. I opened this bad boy up and it looked
great. There is more information inside
this chm than I can process in a life time.
However, NOWHERE does it tell you where to find the damn .dll’s with the
So I set out searching my box for Microsoft.sharepoint.dll. It was NOT found. I started searching the net to only come
across this post (found here). Turns out the .dll’s are NOT installed with
the sdk, WTF. I had to go look on the
server where WSS was installed in order to find them. But the only way to find the file was to do
an entire search for Microsoft.Sharepoint.dll on the hard drive. I finally found it at C:\Program Files\Common
Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\ISAPI
What SDK does not install the damn assemblies…..
Ok, My rant is over.
