SharePoint 2010 Release Candidate Prerequisites

As you may or may not know, the first release candidate of SharePoint 2010 is just around the corner. Here are the pre-requirements for SharePoint Server 2010, RC 1, build 4730:

  • Application Server Role, Web Server (IIS) Role
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Native Client
  • Hotfix for Microsoft Windows (KB976462)
  • Windows Identity Foundation (KB974405)
  • Microsoft Sync Framework Runtime v1.0 (x64)
  • Microsoft Chart Controls for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5
  • Microsoft Filter Pack 2.0
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services ADOMD.NET
  • Microsoft Server Speech Platform Runtime (x64)
  • Microsoft Server Speech Recognition Language – TELE(en-US)
  • SQL 2008 R2 Reporting Services SharePoint 2010 Add-in

As you can see, the prerequisites now include the WCF hotfix, and the prerequisites installer tool will download and install that for you.

Notice also the speech platform requirements. I’ll dig a bit further to figure out what this means.

I previously did SharePoint. These days, I try new things to see where I can find the passion. If you have great ideas, cool projects, or is in general an awesome person, get in touch and we might find out together.

  1. Nik,

    I should perhaps clarify. I am not part of any SharePoint NDA program and thus not under any NDA for SharePoint.

    I am part of multiple NDA programs and of course honor those beyond what the contracts or NDAs dictate.
