Does this webpart work for wss sites that arent MOSS? i have a test sharepoint site i use for demo purposes and i cant get the webpart to show. It shows it was installed but its not in the webpart list.

I've not tested for WSS, but if WSS has support for User Profiles, then this should definitely work, this works not only for Active Directory but also for Windows Users/Workgroups, you need to add the users manually.

I've uploaded the source code, you can have a look if you want any changes to be done for WSS.

Please follow the below steps if you don't see the webpart in webpart list:

From the root site, go to Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Modify All Site Settings
Underneath the Galleries column, clcik on Web Parts
On the toolbar, click New
Scroll all the way down to the bottom, then check the checkbox next to the EmployeeDirectory entry.
Scroll back up to the top, then click on Populate Gallery

Please let me know if this helps.

I have downloaded the source and setup file from this project. Thanks for this.

I have two problems

1. Project is not getting opned in VS2008 Professional Edition. my VS version is 9.0.30727

2. With Setup zip, it will be really helpful if there is some installatio guide lines.


I want to deploy this web part to my Share point server. Please let me know what should be the process for the same.
