EndUser Project Server 2007 Training

Many people have sent me emails and contacted me for Project Server 2007 End User Training videos but unfortunately I have not seen any Project Server step by step training videos.  I am some how thinking about starting Project Server 2007 End User Training Videos screencasts.  I am not sure whether I will be able to do it or not but I will try as much as I can.  I think one small session per day will not hurt me 🙂

I am hopeful that I will start the session from tomorrow.  I have EPM 2007 VPC which includes Project Server 2007, Portfolio Server, Microsoft Project 2007 and Microsoft Office 2007 etc .  I will surly use it. 

I also have to compile the list of session that will be in this training.  If you have any comments to want to add a session please drop a comment below.  I will try to make a session for this.



Installing MOSS on Windows Server 2008 VPC Part III

This is part III of the series.  In this post I will provide the steps to install MOSS on Windows Server 2008 by Splitstream.

When I ran the MOSS Setup I got the following message.


Windows Server 2008 does not support MOSS without SP1.  Either you can download the SP1 Version of MOSS or you can make splitstream easily.  Follow the steps given below.

1. Get both Service Pack 1 of MOSS and WSS 3.0 and rename the files to some easy names. Open the command prompt and navigate to the location.  In my case files on placed on desktop

Wait for the extraction navigate to the Extracted Folder C:\SplitStreams in my case


Press Control + A or Select All Files and Press Control C to copy all files Go to MOSS Installation Folder and copy the files to Updates folder
