Install the Fantastic 40 Application Templates – follow ALL steps!


This reminder is from a thread in Technet Microsoft Forum and the author is Carlos Alberto.

Installing a template:

  1. Before installing a server admin template, you must first install the Application Template Core solution, ApplicationTemplateCore.wsp. (Click here to download). If you have already installed this solution, proceed to Step 2.
    1. Pull the core file, ApplicationTemplateCore.wsp, from the extracted distribution. The core solution file will be added to the solution store, a table in the Windows SharePoint Services configuration store that holds solution files.
    2. Via command line, run stsadm -o addsolution -filename <file_path>\ApplicationTemplateCore.wsp
    3. Next, run stsadm -o deploysolution -name ApplicationTemplateCore.wsp -allowgacdeployment
      (Additional attributes may be required based on your Windows SharePoint Services configuration. For example:
      Single Server: [ -local | -time <time to deploy at> ]
      Farm: [ -immediate | -time <time to deploy at> ]
      To see the list of attributes, run stsadm -help deploysolution)
    4. Finally, run stsadm -o copyappbincontent
  2. Pull the solution file, <template_name>.wsp, from the extracted distribution. The solution file will also be added to the solution store.
  3. Via command line, run stsadm -o addsolution -filename <file_path>\<template_name>.wsp
  4. Next, run stsadm -o deploysolution -name <template_name>.wsp -allowgacdeployment
    (Additional attributes may be required based on your Windows SharePoint Services configuration. For example:
    Single Server: [ -local | -time <time to deploy at> ]
    Farm: [ -immediate | -time <time to deploy at> ]
    To see the list of attributes, run stsadm -help deploysolution)
  5. To check the deployment status, browse to the WSS Central Administration site. Click the Operations tab, and then click Solution management under global configuration.
  6. After all the solutions are marked Globally Deployed, run iisreset from the command line.

Creating a site:

  1. Log into the SharePoint site as the site administrator.
  2. From the Site Actions drop-down menu in the top right, select Site Settings.
  3. Under the Site Administration section, select Sites and Workspaces.
  4. Select Create to create a new site using a site template.
  5. Complete the new SharePoint site information. In the Template Selection section, select the Application Templates tab. Any server admin templates that have been deployed will be listed here.
  6. Select the template to use for this site and click Create.

A site has now been created using the application template.

    We were trying to install and deploy about 11 of the STP’s using this scenario: Install all 11 Stps, then deploy all Stp’s. When we go to central admin, we see the templates, however, when we begin to create the site, we do not see them at all.

    Does the install order matter? Need some help. thanks.

  2. Hi Pamela,

    yes, in order to have the templates working you really need to follow the order and all the steps. My advice is to test it on a test environment and make your experiences . . .

    The acupuncture treatment was deemed effective in these cases whefe medication had failed.
    Diabetic neuropathy is rreally a serious condition that could
    affect vital bodily functions.

  5. I am in fact thankful to the owner of this web page who has shared this
    great piece of writing at here.

    Most people look in the directory listing when they require any services.
    You also can get help from some agencies like Business Bureau, local Costumers Affairs Department or
    Motor Car Department to ensure about the shop you pick has
    no important outstanding complaints against them.

    This is why they look for auto repair companies to take care of their valuable possession.
