I too, noticed that the link wasn't working. It's unfortunate that the book still mentions it. You may as well build your own VM than wait for a new one to be posted.

Default Info worker SharePoint 2010 vhd evals

Hi


if you download 2010-7a and (optionally) 2010-7b http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/e...displaylang=enYou'l be good to go.

One word of warning, you'll need a beefy server with 6GB or more running 2008 (R2) Hyper-V. I do know someone who has got this running on a laptop but I have yet to try this out via his blog post. The WIFI support under win2008R2 is not great if the your wifi network card is not supported natively.

Otherwise like me you could build a bootable VHD under win2008R2 or Win7 Ult and install 2010 foundation. I have done this serveral times and could help.

cheers

Daniel

Default SharePoint VM

You may also want to check out this option: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/pstubbs/arch...up-script.aspx

It's an easy set-up that installs the environment automatically on your machine.

I did write and test the code against an earlier IW VM version, so there may be small issues. I'm going to do another code pass in the coming weeks against the latest IW VM image and will post any issues I find with the code.

Default Environment...

...and as an after-comment, the SP PMG decommissioned the earlier IW VM link when they published the update. This broke the link.

As I discover (or readers ping me), I am posting fixes and caveats on my blog, e.g. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/steve_fox/ar...fice-2010.aspx.

Since there is more activity on the Wrox blog, I'll continue to monitor this blog as well.

As an aside you might want to put common issues and resolutions in your blog as these can be cross referenced against a specific chapter. I am enjoying the book btw. I guess the issues we are having are helping us to learn the material...which is a good thing....
