Experts:

I'm reviewing a SharePoint project built by a previous employee and am getting the following warning from Visual Studio:

"To work with this project, either SharePoint Foundation 2010 or SharePoint Server 2010 must be installed on the system."

I find this hard to believe? Is this true that I have to either install SharePoint locally or work with this application from a SharePoint server? Is there a way around this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
unfortunately this is true. You can develop without Sharepoint by simply copying the DLLs and referencing them but no way to debug.
Therefore until SP2013 I always setup a VM with everything installed to develop, test and debug.
With 2013 the hardware reqs have increased dramatically so no local VM possible but VS 2013 has now some nice debugging features.
