Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Application Templates: All Templates

When installing the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Application Templates: All Templates package I found the directions to be a bit lacking.

There was a great blog post out there on the
Microsoft SharePoint Team Blog, but it was a little difficult to follow, and event harder to get the commands to complete the installation.

Basically, the installation that I am working with is a virtual machine running Windows 2008 server, and a beta version of SQL Server 2008. SharePoint is set up as a farm, using an SQL configuration database hosted on the same machine (with a few changes the steps below should work for a database on another box).

Here are the steps that I used:
Double click on AllTemplates
and extract to (C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\12\BIN on my machine)

Open a command line prompt, and navigate to the directory from the previous step. Run these commands.

stsadm -o addsolution -filename ApplicationTemplateCore.wsp
stsadm -o deploysolution -name ApplicationTemplateCore.wsp -local -allowGacDeployment
stsadm -o copyappbincontent

stsadm -o addsolution -filename AbsenceVacationSchedule.wsp

stsadm -o copyappbincontent
stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs

The directions for the application templates included in the package worked well for me. This is a direct copy of those directions:
1. Download the site template EXE file to your computer.
2. Run the EXE file to unpack the template file to a
location on your computer.
3. Select the template file, .stp, from
the extracted distribution for the application template
you wish to install.
4. Log into your SharePoint site as the site Administrator.
5. From the Site Actions drop-down menu in the top right,
select Site Settings.
6. Under the Galleries section, select Site templates.
7. Select Upload to load an application template into this
SharePoint site.
8. Browse to the .stp file from the distribution
and select Open. If you have several application templates
to load into your site, you can use the Upload Multiple
Files… option to load them all at once.
9. Click Ok to complete the upload of the application template
to your SharePoint site.
