Running a system with MCMS 2002 SP2 is a little bit more tricky than running one with the previous versions. Especially when it comes to VS.NET integration:
VS.NET developer tools
It is not possible to install the MCMS 2002 developer tools on a system that has SP2 installed. The developer tools have to be installed with MCMS 2002 SP1a and then the system has to be upgraded to Service Pack 2.
If developer tools need to be added to a system that has already SP2 installed you need to follow these steps:
- Uninstall MCMS 2002 SP2
- ensure that Visual Studio 2003 (or Visual Studio 2002) is installed
- Run “Change/Remove” from Add/Remove Programs on MCMS 2002 SP1a (Using the SP1a CD to access required files)
- Change the existing installation, and select Developer Tools as the feature to add
- Re-install MCMS 2002 SP2
If you need VS.NET 2005 with MCMS then you still need to follow the steps above (including installing VS.NET 2003 or 2002). After installing SP2 you need to use the following steps to ensure that VS.NET 2005 has the MCMS project types:
After installing SP2, the actions outlined in KB 906145 must be taken to make these templates available to Microsoft Visual Studio 2005.
SQL Server 2005
If you use Microsoft SQL Server utilities to transfer your MCMS 2002 database from Microsoft SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2005 after you install MCMS 2002 SP2, you need to follow the hints in the following section of KB 906145.
