When you install SharePoint on your server you have to add roles and features.
This poershell does it for you:

 

Add-WindowsFeature NET-WCF-HTTP-Activation45,NET-WCF-TCP-Activation45,NET-WCF-Pipe-Activation45
Add-WindowsFeature Net-Framework-Features,Web-Server,Web-WebServer,Web-Common-Http,

Have fun

I have putted this in a feature receiver event.
The code is actually very straight forword.

 

[Guid(“9ea3c6f6-f6f2-45e2-9cee-2e95e3019a34”)]
public class MUACChangeEventReceiver : SPFeatureReceiver
{

SPList historyList = null;
SPList taskList = null;

public override void FeatureActivated(SPFeatureReceiverProperties properties)
{
SPSite site = properties.Feature.Parent as SPSite;
SPWeb web = site.RootWeb;
SPList list = web.Lists[“Project site creation”];

TryGetHistoryList(web);
TryGetTaskList(web);

//Get workflow by name
//SPWorkflowTemplate workflowTemplate = web.WorkflowTemplates.GetTemplateByName(Resources.Workflow.WorkflowDisplayName, CultureInfo.CurrentCulture);

Guid workflowTemplateGuid = Resources.Workflow.WorkflowId;
SPWorkflowTemplate workflowTemplate = web.WorkflowTemplates[workflowTemplateGuid];

web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;

try
{
// Create workflow association
SPWorkflowAssociation workflowAssociation = SPWorkflowAssociation.CreateListAssociation(workflowTemplate, Resources.Workflow.WorkflowDisplayName, taskList, historyList);

// Set workflow parameters
workflowAssociation.AllowManual = false;
workflowAssociation.AutoStartCreate = true;
workflowAssociation.AutoStartChange = false;

// Add workflow association to my list
list.WorkflowAssociations.Add(workflowAssociation);

// Enable workflow
workflowAssociation.Enabled = true;
}
finally
{
web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = false;
}
}

private void TryGetHistoryList(SPWeb web)
{
try
{
historyList = web.Lists[“Workflow History”];
}
catch (ArgumentException exc)
{
// Create workflow history list
Guid listGuid = web.Lists.Add(“Workflow History”, “”, SPListTemplateType.WorkflowHistory);
historyList = web.Lists[listGuid];
historyList.Hidden = true;
historyList.Update();
}
}
private void TryGetTaskList(SPWeb web)
{
try
{
taskList = web.Lists[“Workflow Tasks”];
}
catch (ArgumentException exc)
{
// Create workflow tasks list
Guid listGuid = web.Lists.Add(“Workflow Tasks”, “”, SPListTemplateType.Tasks);
taskList = web.Lists[listGuid];
taskList.Hidden = true;
taskList.Update();
}
}
}

Most often you want your customsolution to be deployed to only a specific webapplication but SharePoint won’t allow it.

It’s actually very easy to fix this by tricking SharePoint.

In your package manifest you add a safe control:

<Solution xmlns=”http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/”&gt;
<Assemblies>
<Assembly Location=”dll_name_of_your_solution.dll” DeploymentTarget=”GlobalAssemblyCache”>
<SafeControls>
             <SafeControl Assembly=”dll_name_of_your_solution,Version=1.0.0.0,Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=****************” Namespace=”namespace_of_your_solution” TypeName=”*” />
</SafeControls>
</Assembly>
</Assemblies></Solution>

If you acces the value of a multiline field there will be HTML tags included, so… the way to get only the text is like this…

SPFieldMultiLineText field = (SPFieldMultiLineText)item.Fields[“FieldName”];
string text = field.GetFieldValueAsText(item[“FieldName”]);

I wrote an exstension method for this:

var text = item.RetrieveMultiLineValue(“fieldname”);

Method:

public static string RetrieveMultiLineValue(this SPListItem item, string fieldname)
{
string text = String.Empty;

if (item[fieldname] != null)
{
SPFieldMultiLineText field = (SPFieldMultiLineText)item.Fields[fieldname];
text = field.GetFieldValueAsText(item[fieldname]);
}

return text;
}

Voila, hope it helps, comments are welcome…
