Install SharePoint Server 2010 on Windows 7 x64

Steps:

You can install SharePoint Server 2010 on your client OS by modifying a config file.

Upon the start up of the SharePoint installer and you’ll get the following error:

Go to property of setup.exe

So it seems that the installer was unpacked in C:\Program Files (x86)\MSECache\oserver2010. You can browse to that directory now.

  • Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\MSECache\oserver2010
  • Go to the Files folder
  • Go to the Setup folder
  • Open config.xml
  • Add the following line before the closing </configuration> tag
<Setting Id=”AllowWindowsClientInstall” Value=”True”/>

Once you’ve modified the config file, you’ll be able to install SharePoint Server 2010 on your Windows 7 machine!

Enjoy!
