This is a quick doc explaining how to install eRoom 7 on Windows XP Professional. It assumes that Windows XP Pro is installed, and you have the eRoom 7 setup program downloaded. This is based on the events of last week, but I believe I remembered everything.
1. Install IIS.
2. Make sure the install account has the ‘Act As Part Of The Operating System’ privilege. Do this by opening up your control panel (changing to the classic view if need be), double clicking Adminstrative Tools, then Local Security Policy, then expanding the Local Policies node, then clicking the User Rights Assignment node. Double click on ‘Act as part of the operating system’ (it’s the 2nd entry on my list) and add the user that will be installing eRoom.
4. Run the eRoom setup program. At the end, you’ll get this message:
Exception number 0x80040707
Description: Dll function call crashed ISRT._DoSprintf
5. Re-register all your eRoom dlls by opening up a cmd window, cding to
C:\Program Files\eRoom\eRoom Server\ and running
for each dll in that directory.
6. Run the eRoom MMC plugin: Start Menu, Run, “C:\Program Files\eRoom\eRoom Server\ERSAdmin.msc”
You should then be able to create a site via this screen.
