Hi,

I have downloaded RRS Feed from http://www.smilinggoat.net/stuff.aspx and installed on my server (Sharepoint 2003). As per README file I have to run below commands.

stsadm -o addsolution -filename %YOUR_INSTALL_DIR%\SharePoint.WebParts.Rss.wsp

stsadm -o deploysolution -name SmilingGoat.SharePoint.WebParts.Rss.wsp -allowGacdeployment -local -url %SITE_URL%

But here the issue is in Sharepoint 2003 I cant find addsolution and deploysolution options in stsadm tool.

Is there any other ways or steps to complete my installation. Please help me here.

simha81 - the package is definitely optimized for Sharepoint/WSS v3.  One thing to try real quick is rename the .wsp to .cab and run stsadm.exe -o addwppack -filename <path to file> -globalinstall

I can't recall if this will work or not as I don't have a v2 environment to test in right now.

Hi,

Thanks for quick reply. I have changed wsp to cab and tried to run it, but no luck.

Below is the error.

C:\Documents and Settings\WMCSPadmin.WELLINGTON>stsadm.exe -o addwppack -filename C:\Apps\RSS FeedReader Web Part\SmilingGoat.SharePoint.WebParts.Rss.cab -globalinstall

Command line error.

Usage:
           stsadm.exe -o <operation> [<parameters>]
           stsadm.exe -help [<operation>]

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

I may have gotten the operation wrong.  Look at the stsadm operation commands for web parts and follow the correct parameters.  Sorry, I'm just not in front of a sharepoint machine right now :-(

Hello,

Can you please tell me how to make this command work in Sgarepoint 2003.I couldn't find addsolution option.

stsadm -o addsolution -filename %YOUR_INSTALL_DIR%\SharePoint.WebParts.Rss.wsp

 

Thanks.

Hi Tim,

I have run this command successfully -- stsadm.exe -o addwppack -filename <path to file> -globalinstall

What would be my next step after running above command? Is 3.x version compatible with Sharepoint 2003 (WSS2.0)?
