I am trying to setup my system to create web parts in visual studio 2005 however i found that I need to reference Microsoft.Sharepoint.dll which requires me to have a server OS installed so I can install Sharepoint services 3.0. I am using my schools MOSS for deploying the web part but I was wondering if there was a way to design web parts on my system without running a VM.

Thanks in advance

It is sometimes possible to do some development on Vista or XP but for any serious work you're going to need either:
  • Server 2003/2008 installed locally
  • A virtual machine running one of the above
  • Remote Desktop access (or similar) to a server
We use all three at my company and all have their pros and cons.
