    1. To make it work for SharePoint 2010

      Replace in “Setup.bat” path:
      “PLocation=%CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12”
      PLocation=%CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\14

      Could you also post the end product in your web site?

  1. Hi Aryan, Thank you, I did try with this example and got it worked!! However got the following problems,

    1. By default a Form folder also shows inside each document library

    2. Always all the trees will be expanded

    3. Unable to open the source code in any of the VS 2005, VS 2010, VS 2008.

      1. Thank you very much Arya, I just downloaded it, will try it on Monday and let you know the outcomes 🙂 And thanks again for spending time on this !!

    1. If your hosting WordPress in public server you can download and install plugins. If your site is within WordPress hosting, install Premium themes. I install premium theme for my post.

  2. I´m thinking of installing sharepoint foundation for my company in order to clients (third party login) enter and fill out a infopath form for reclamation, has this is intranet, is it possible to thirdparty enter as the sharepoint server does?
