Hello friends,

I want to develop sharepoint webParts on my development machine. My machine has Windows 7, VS 2005 and VS 2008 installed. What extra I would required to develop sharepoint webparts. I tried to dowload sharepoint development SDK 3.0, but it now worked. I am unable to find Microsoft.SharePoint dll on my machine. We have 3-4 developers working on webparts, so Its not possible to install sharepoint server on developers machine.

this article talks about the requirements (look at the Setting up the Development Environment section):
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms564508.aspx

"The supported approach for setting up your Web Part development environment is to develop locally on an Office SharePoint Server 2007 server."

so you'll need to figure out a way to have sharepoint installed.  one method is to remote to the sharepoint server.  or install sharepoint on a VM.

see here for instructions + an example using Visual Studio:
