today I'm working with a new project and the specification from the project is to develop a new application with SharePoint 2013 Foundation.

I've already a virtual machine but with SharePoint 2013 Enterprise.

I've two basic possibility:

  1. create a new virtual machine
  2. uninstall the Enterprise version of SharePoint and install the Foundation.

I've used the second approach. So I've uninstalled SharePoint 2013 Enterprise version and immediately after I've installed the Foundation version.

Just during the Wizard, I've received some errors: "dll not found", "files from feature not found", etc.

The problems stem from the fact that into the "C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\" folder there are the definitions of both versions of SharePoint. Infact, when you uninstall SharePoint, the uninstaller does not remove the files and the folders into the path.

To make a clean installation, I've:

  • removed both versions
  • turned off the machine
  • mounted the vhd and removed the folder "C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\" (It cannot be removed when the machine is turned on)
  • installed the SharePoint Foundation version
  • launched the wizar.

Finally, I've an installation and an usage without errors.

You may have encountered a warning similar to the following when browsing web sites with IE or Chrome:

"The Web site wants to run the following add-on: 'Name ActiveX Control' from 'Microsoft Corporation'. If you trust the Web site and the add-on and want to allow it to run, click here..."

The problem occurs only on PC that has Microsoft Lync installed. Infact, the browser needs the rights to execute a Microsoft dll (Name.dll) in order to display the presence icon.

I've also tried to disable the feature from the web application settings but it not resolve the problem.

If your application doesn't need of this feature and you want to disable this warning, you need to override the SharePoint OOB script that request the add-on. These are the steps to fix the problem:

  • Edit the master page
  • immediately under the body tag, add the follow script.

Show/Hidden javascript code

View source
    function ProcessImn()
    { }
    function ProcessImnMarkers()
    { }

That is it.
