    ImportantImportant:
    This document discusses how to install Office Forms Server 2007 on a single computer as a stand-alone installation. It does not cover installing Office Forms Server 2007 in a farm environment. For information about how to do this, see the article Deploy Office Forms Server 2007 in a server farm environment.

You can quickly publish a SharePoint site by deploying Office Forms Server 2007 on a single server computer. A stand-alone configuration is useful if you want to evaluate Office Forms Server 2007 features and capabilities. A stand-alone configuration is also useful if you are deploying a small number of Web sites and you want to minimize administrative overhead. When you deploy Office Forms Server 2007 on a single server using the default settings, the Setup program automatically installs SQL Server 2005 Express Edition and uses it to create the configuration database and content database for your SharePoint sites. In addition, installs Office Forms Server 2007 Central Administration, and creates your first SharePoint site collection and site.

NoteNote:
There is no direct upgrade from a stand-alone installation to a farm installation.

Before you install and configure Office Forms Server 2007, be sure that your servers have the required hardware and software. For more information about these requirements, see Determine hardware and software requirements (Windows SharePoint Services).

Before you install and configure Office Forms Server 2007, you must install and configure the required software. This includes installing and configuring Internet Information Services (IIS) so your computer acts as a Web server, installing the Microsoft .NET Framework version 3.0, and enabling ASP.NET 2.0.

Internet Information Services (IIS) is not installed or enabled by default in the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 operating system. To make your server a Web server, you must install and enable IIS, and you must ensure that IIS is running in IIS 6.0 worker process isolation mode.

Install and configure IIS
  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Configure Your Server Wizard.

  2. On the Welcome to the Configure Your Server Wizard page, click Next.

  3. On the Preliminary Steps page, click Next.

  4. On the Server Role page, click Application server (IIS, ASP.NET), and then click Next.

  5. On the Application Server Options page, click Next.

  6. On the Summary of Selections page, click Next.

  7. Click Finish.

  8. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.

  9. In the IIS Manager tree, click the plus sign (+) next to the server name, right-click the Web Sites folder, and then click Properties.

  10. In the Web Sites Properties dialog box, click the Service tab.

  11. In the Isolation mode section, clear the Run WWW service in IIS 5.0 isolation mode check box, and then click OK.

    NoteNote:
    The Run WWW in IIS 5.0 isolation mode check box is only selected if you have upgraded to IIS 6.0 on Windows Server 2003 from IIS 5.0 on Microsoft Windows 2000. New installations of IIS 6.0 use IIS 6.0 worker process isolation mode by default.

Go to the Microsoft Download Center Web site (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=72322&clcid=0x409), and on the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 page, follow the instructions for downloading and installing the .NET Framework version 3.0. There are separate downloads for x86-based computers and x64-based computers. Be sure to download and install the appropriate version for your computer. The .NET Framework version 3.0 download contains the Windows Workflow Foundation technology, which is required by workflow features.

Enable ASP.NET 2.0
  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.

  2. In the IIS Manager tree, click the plus sign (+) next to the server name, and then click the Web Service Extensions folder.

  3. In the details pane, right-click ASP.NET v2.0.50727, and then click Allow.

When you install Office Forms Server 2007 on a single server, run the Setup program using the Basic option. This option uses the Setup program's default parameters to install Office Forms Server 2007 and SQL Server 2005 Express Edition.

Run setup
  1. From the product disc, run Setup.exe, or from the product download, run Officeserver.exe.

  2. On the Enter your Product Key page, enter your product key, and then click Continue.

NoteNote:
Setup will automatically check the product key and place a green check mark next to the textbox and enable the when Continue button it has validated the key. If the key is not valid, Setup will place a red circle next to the textbox and display a message that the key is incorrect.
  1. On the Read the Microsoft Software License Terms page, review the terms, select the I accept the terms of this agreement check box, and then click Continue.

  2. On the Choose the installation you want page, click Basic to install to the default location. To install to a different location, click Advanced and then on the File Location tab, enter the location you want to install to and finish the installation.

  3. When Setup finishes, a dialog box prompts you to complete the configuration of your server. Be sure that the Run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard now check box is selected.

  4. Click Close to start the configuration wizard.

Run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard

  2. In the dialog box that notifies you that some services might need to be restarted or reset during configuration, click Yes.

  3. On the Configuration Successful page, click Finish. Your new SharePoint site opens.

    NoteNote:
    If you are prompted for your user name and password, you might need to add the SharePoint site to the list of trusted sites and configure user authentication settings in Internet Explorer. Instructions for configuring these settings are provided in the following procedure.
    NoteNote:
    If you see a proxy server error message, you might need to configure your proxy server settings so that local addresses bypass the proxy server. Instructions for configuring proxy server settings are provided later in this section.
Add the SharePoint site to the list of trusted sites
  1. In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

  2. On the Security tab, in the Select a Web content zone to specify its security settings box, click Trusted Sites, and then click Sites.

  8. Click OK to close the Local Area Network (LAN) Settings dialog box.

  9. Click OK to close the Internet Options dialog box.

After Setup finishes, your browser window opens to the home page of your new SharePoint site. Although you can start adding content to the site or you can start customizing the site, we recommend that you perform the following administrative tasks by using the SharePoint Central Administration Web site.

  • Configure incoming e-mail settings   You can configure incoming e-mail settings so that SharePoint sites accept and archive incoming e-mail. You can also configure incoming e-mail settings so that SharePoint sites can archive e-mail discussions as they happen, save e-mailed documents, and show e-mailed meetings on site calendars. In addition, you can configure the SharePoint Directory Management Service to provide support for e-mail distribution list creation and management. For more information, see Configure incoming e-mail settings (Office SharePoint Server).

  • Configure outgoing e-mail settings   You can configure outgoing e-mail settings so that your Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server sends e-mail alerts to site users and notifications to site administrators. You can configure both the "From" e-mail address and the "Reply" e-mail address that appears in outgoing alerts. For more information, see Configure outgoing e-mail settings (Office SharePoint Server).

  • Configure diagnostic logging settings   You can configure several diagnostic logging settings to help with troubleshooting. This includes enabling and configuring trace logs, event messages, user-mode error messages, and Customer Experience Improvement Program events. For more information, see Configure diagnostic logging settings.

  • Configure antivirus protection settings   You can configure several antivirus settings if you have an antivirus program that is designed for Office Forms Server 2007. Antivirus settings enable you to control whether documents are scanned on upload or download and whether users can download infected documents. You can also specify how long you want the antivirus program to run before it times out, and you can specify how many execution threads the antivirus program can use on the server. For more information, see Configure antivirus settings.

  • Create SharePoint sites   When Setup finishes, you have a single Web application that contains a single SharePoint site collection that hosts a SharePoint site. You can create more SharePoint sites collections, sites, and Web applications if your site design requires multiple sites or multiple Web applications. For more information, see Deploy and configure SharePoint sites (Windows SharePoint Services).

Perform administrator tasks by using the Central Administration site
  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Office Forms Server, and then click SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration.

  2. On the Central Administration home page, under Administrator Tasks, click the task you want to perform.

  3. On the Administrator Tasks page, next to Action, click the task.
