Lab Overview: In this lab exercise you will upgrade a SharePoint 2007 solution that was created using VSeWSS 1.3 to SharePoint 2010 and the new SharePoint Tools in Visual Studio 2010. You will first import the VSeWSS project into Visual Studio 2010 using a special project template. Importing the project maintains artifact layout, project settings and source code. Next you will address any inconsistencies resulting from the import.

Lab Setup Requirements

Before you begin this lab, you must run the batch file named SetupLabXX.bat. This batch file runs a PowerShell script which creates a new SharePoint site collection at the location http://intranet.contoso.com/sites/LabXX. You must also run the VSeWSS_Upgrade_Sample_Beta_20100108.msi file located in the Lab Folder >> Starter Files Folder. Accept all default choices for the installation. This installs the installer files to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\VSeWSS Upgrade\. Navigate to this location and run the VSeWSSUpgrade_Beta2_20091203.msi file accepting all defaults. When this is finished you must navigate to Start menu >> All Files >> Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 >> Visual Studio Tools and right-click on the Visual Studio Command Prompt and select Run as administrator. On the Visual Studio Command Prompt you must run the following command DEVENV /installvstemplates ; this installs the required project templates into Visual Studio 2010 to allow for the upgrade of VSeWSS projects from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010.
