Hi all,


I am new to VCampus so if answer is already posted please forgive me and point me to the information. Thanks in Advance


Our Company is transitioning from a coldfusion shop to a Sharepoint\Webpart SCADA Reports Solution.


One item we are having a hard time wrapping our arms around is building a Development Environment that works for sharepoint and for our Developers. Every Blog or other Website we have found have suggested that you have to have W2K3 with WSS3.0, Visual Studio 2005 or greater and Sharepoint Designer 2007 all on a W2K3 Server. We are not in a position currently to give 3-6 Developers their own personal W2K3/Visual Studio 2005 Development Center, but our developers believe its better to have their own sand box (not being a Developer Myself I can see their reason's).


Has anyone setup an environment that works that can avoid so many individual "sand boxes"?


Do I even have the required items correct or is there other combinations that will work?


Thanks Again


Ken Rice
