Problem when installing WSP in Windows 7/Windows Server 2008


I know that Microsoft has fabulous 40, a collection of 40 site templates in this link. I have played with all the templates, without any problem – but today when I tried to install it in my Windows 2008 server I was stuck in the wsp deployment. It seems that I couldn’t deploy the WSP.

Then, I remembered that Windows 2008 has increased security model which prevent accidental execution using privileged account. So, what I did to solve it – was just simply open the cmd console using privileged account.

Right click on “cmd.exe” and select “Run as Administrator”. And here we go, all wsp finally deployed to my MOSS installation.
